India is now facing the worst threat of Covid with the death toll rapidly increasing and their oxygen supply thinning. As a result, many good samaritans are helping those in need. A man in Mumbai helps by providing a rickshaw service from hospital to home and visa versa for free.
“I drop off Covid patients to Care Centres and hospitals for free, and also bring discharged patients to their respective homes,” he added.
Dattatraya Swant, a teacher drives the auto-rickshaw by himself and provides free rides to Covid patients. He still makes sure to use precautions like wearing a PPE kit, sanitization, and others. Mr. Sawant teaches English at Dnyansagar Vidya Mandir School.
“For this, I personally take all precautionary measures. At present, the number of corona patients is increasing rapidly. Many of them are dying due to untimely treatment. In such a situation, whether the poor patients get government help in time or not, private ambulances are not affordable. And often public vehicles do not provide services to Covid patients. In such cases, my free service will be available to the patients,” he said in an interview.
As the number of coronavirus patients soars, his volunteer is highly appreciated by all.
