The second wave of COVID infections, or as some may call it, the Tsunami of COVID cases has trampled the healthcare infrastructure. The medical facilities are overburdened and overwhelmed with patients and medical supplies including oxygen cylinders, ventilators, drugs are in short supply.

If you want to setup covid care centre please call vmedo for complete assistance.

People in dire need of critical care are unable to find hospital beds and ambulance services as there are reports of hospital beds being occupied by patients who do not require critical care and can recover with basic home isolation or quarantine. 

But does every home have enough facilities for proper home quarantine?

The solution lies in coming together as a community. COVID Care Centres (CCC) are the answer.

CCCs are dedicated rooms or spaces created for COVID-positive patients with mild/no symptoms. Any available premises like a clubhouse at your apartment complex, office spaces at companies, or unoccupied rooms at a hotel can be converted into a CCC. 

In July 2020, the state government of Karnataka passed an order allowing RWAs to create their in-house CCCs.
