Given the rather disturbing situation due to COVID-19, just everyone is chipping in to provide relief and respite to COVID-positive and their families. One such step has been taken by ForIT or Forum of IT Professionals, which has a group of IT professionals from the city. Having witnessed the burden on the health care system and the non-availability of beds, these IT professionals have set up a ‘free COVID care centre’ in the city. 


There are many patients for whom paying huge hospital bills is a burden and shelling out large sums to stay in isolation with all necessary facilities is another issue. So, the IT forum, along with Swecha, a non-profit organisation, started this facility. 


The facility has been set up with around 70 beds in KG Reddy College in Hyderabad for asymptomatic and mildly symptomatic patients. At the centre, one can avail 24x7 medical supervision, medicines and healthy meals, all free of cost. 


In fact, the Forum provided free medical helpline services during the first wave. One member shares that the IT professionals observed that a large number of people were not getting medical treatment despite all efforts to contain the disease. This made some IT professionals take a step and set up the facility. 


The facility has trained nursing staff and six doctors. Also, an ambulance and oxygen cylinders have been provided for emergency requirements.
