The unprecedented surge in the COVID-19 cases saw India’s active cases exponentially rise to 35 Lacs cases recording over 2.2 Lacs deaths as per the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Govt. of India (May 4,2021). The sudden spike in cases and severe resource crunch in the public health facilities, resulted in crippling of the public health facilities that were overwhelmed by continuous stream of patients requiring hospitalization care. Acknowledging the commendable role played by Non-Govt, Organizations and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in tackling the first wave of COVID-19, the Govt. of India has urged CSOs to join the Govt.'s efforts in combating COVID-19 second wave.
Deepak Foundation through CSR support continues to complement the Govt.’s fight against COVID-19 through an array of relief measures which includes setting-up and operationalizing COVID-19 Care centers and supporting the public health facilities with equipment, medicines, essential medical supplies for catering to the increasing need for hospitalization care.
COVID-19 Care Centers:
The Foundation continued with its relief measures during the second COVID-19 wave in the FY 2021-22 by initiating three dedicated COVID-19 Care Centers (CCC) to support the Govt. in overcoming the COVID-19. The total capacity of the CCCs initiated till date is 150 beds across sites for patients needing hospital care. Two CCCs has been initiated in Gujarat (Vadodara district and Chhota Udepur district) and one CCC has been operationalized in Maharashtra (Palghar district).
