    Covid19 pandemic, has virtually ruined lives of millions of our countrymen... Locals n migrants have lost their daily livelihood, many have become destitutes !! Depression has hit the young n the old.... How on Earth can common citizens, be able to foot the exorbitant medical bills ?? Today a senior citizen died on the streets of Bangaluru city waiting for 3 hours, for an ambulance !! Survival of the fittest is the new dogma.. Rest will all perish !!!!

    The toll free helpline 080 46848600 provides information only to Covid19 victims and does not provide any information or answer to queries from general public and aksed . They only collect personal history of the caller.
