Rahul Gandhi then went to appeal to doctors and medical professionals to join the battle against Covid-19 and help those in need of medical advice.
This comes at a time when India on Saturday recorded over 4 lakh fresh Covid-19 cases and over 3,500 deaths in a global record. India now has over 32 lakh active coronavirus cases across states.
The form shared by Rahul Gandhi further states, “… requesting the support of doctors to lend their expertise on call for Covid patients across India. At this unprecedented health crisis, the nation needs compassion, support, and hope from each of us. If you are a doctor, kindly register yourself under the “Hello Doctor” initiative by AICC, to consult the patient.”
Congress has appealed to doctors across the country and registers themselves for the helpline to provide Covid consultation.
The doctors can mention their states, time slots for availability, and days when they can give their service to the cause of fighting the Covid battle.
