How it started
While I was handling the patient queries during my posting in Rapid Response Team, I experienced that patients and their family members have very similar issues and concerns. They wanted information and help from a source they can believe/trust. Also, many a times people called us to know many non health related but other COVID-19 related issues- simply like garbage services! This instigated me to create a simple website where public can find the required reliable information quickly.
I reached out Mr BK Kalia of Cloud 84, my friend, who has wast experience in this field and shared what I was thinking. He was eager to help for this social cause and teamed to help people during these testing time and portal was conceptualised and we constructed the site.
This was then brought into the notice of the administration and HOD’s of the Government Medical College and Hospital, Sector-32, Chandigarh and they not only applauded but everyone gave the valuable feedback and suggestions from rich professional experience of their respective fields and personal human experiences as well. This is how it became what this site is now and, is constantly evolving under their round the clock help, guidance and supervision.
The purpose is to provide correct information about COVID-19 in wider public interest, spread the information and reach out more and more individuals and patients.
Lets fight this battle out, together!
