Delhi: Autos become ambulances amid Covid-19 crisis

May 07, 2021 08:38 IST | By Editorji News Desk

With Delhi running short of ambulances, authorities have turned some of the city's three-wheeled autorickshaws into makeshift ambulances to ferry Covid-19 patients.

A massive surge on Covid cases has left Delhi's heatch care system overwhelmed and there is a shortage of ambulances among other facilities.

The Delhi government, in association with a non-profit organization, has fitted more than a dozen autorickshaws with hand sanitizers and face masks, while oxygen cylinders are provided on a need basis. The service, which began officially on Tuesday, is free.

The AAP govt has said that more autos will be added to the service soon.
