Ambala, July 15

Medical aid and counselling facilities are being provided to Ambala residents, especially those at high Covid risk, on their doorstep. A dedicated 24x7 helpline 1950 had been launched to contact, trace, counsel and treat vulnerable people.

Callers can access credible information on Covid and avail medical assistance for vulnerable patients suffering from tuberculosis, cancer, diabetes, hypertension and liver and kidney ailments.

The helpline has a provision of telephonic psychological counselling. A group of MBBS doctors, Ayush specialists, psychologists and counsellors have been put on duty to interact with, advise and answer callers.

Since the launch of the helpline on June 26, over 1,000 persons have been called up, with almost 750 having answered the calls.
