‘Turn your wounds to wisdom’. In times of coronavirus pandemic when everyone is complaining about the lack of hospitals and infrastructure facilities, people in Noida’s Sector 93 – Express View Apartment RWA have put their resources to good use.
The apartment has converted the society’s community hall into an isolation centre for the covid patients living in the society. Let us know how they did it.
Due to the rising number of coronavirus patients in the State, hospitals were quickly filling up. The society too started feeling the heat of the situation as 17 of them got infected with the virus, creating a commotion among all. But, they knew something had to be done.
Sujit Pandey, a resident of the Express View Apartment came up with the idea of converting the community hall into a covid isolation centre. Upon discussing it with the society members, within 3 hours, they collected around Rs 3 lakh for the isolation centre. Then on, with 10 beds, the isolation centre set to work.
The people living in the society came forward with help like providing bedsheets, fans, pillows, chairs, beds, and more. The isolation centre that started with 10 beds, now has 70 of them. They also have oxygen cylinders and concentrators of their own. They also provided the patients with necessary medicines, food, and care. Some covid patients were even provided oxygen facilities at their doorsteps.
“62 people have so far recovered at the isolation centre. With 10 oxygen concentrators and 20 oxygen cylinders, we are working towards defeating the coronavirus pandemic”, Pandey said.
According to Pandey, they even got the 20 oxygen cylinders refilled 6 times.
At present 20 are still infected with the virus in the society, 10 lost their lives and 8 are in the care at the society’s isolation centre. However, efforts continue 24 X 7 to save lives. This Noida society has set an example for the neighbouring societies as well to came forward in times like these, save human life and the humanity at large.
