Mahindra offers to convert resorts as temporary health care facilities
Mahindra, chairman of Mahindra Group, has offered to convert Mahindra Holiday Resorts as temporary health care facilities.
“Going by various reports from epidemiologists, it is highly likely that India is already in stage-3 of transmission. Cases could rise exponentially with millions of casualties, putting a huge strain on medical infrastructure,” Mahindra said in a series of tweets.
He further said, “A lockdown over the next few weeks will help flatten the curve and moderate the peak pressure on medical care. However, we need to create scores of temporary hospitals and we have a scarcity of ventilators.”
Mahindra plans to make ventilators at Mahindra manufacturing units to help fight the deadly corona virus pandemic. Besides, he also decided to create a fund and contribute 100% of his salary towards this cause.
