Covid Helpline Bangalore

Started last year, the website aims to provide all information you would need, should you or your loved one contract the virus. Fever clinics, oxygen cylinders availability, ambulance services, bed availability, guidelines, government orders and notifications can be found here. The helpline also has an option for people to donate to patients from low-income households, as the treatment can prove to be expensive for many. For more details, visit covidhelplinebangalore.com.
