COVID-19 has devasted all of India, setting global records for the number of people affected and killed by the deadly virus due to a collapsed medical infrastructure. As healthcare systems, in urban boundaries across India grapple with the second wave of COVID-19 and are facing devastating consequences, the pandemic has amply demonstrated how a lack of adequate medical care facility, resources like oxygen and medicines, limited awareness on the extent and seriousness of spread of the pandemic, vaccine hesitancy can render rural India vulnerable. This lack of resources is causing major problems for the people in the rural areas who are experiencing symptoms of Covid -19 as in comparison to major cities they are not properly equipped to deal with the pandemic and are badly in need of a better medical support.
“We are earnestly working towards the safety and welfare of the mankind and want to extend all the possible help to those nestling in rural and semi-urban hinterlands. These initiatives will also facilitate the government by reducing the burden on local medical centres, hospitals and will provide people a platform to address their medical concern along with ease of access to experienced medical professionals. We want to stand by and ensure that prime importance is given to the health of not only our clients but their family members, friends, relatives and all other people across 25000 villages, in this way these initiatives will help us to serve more than 1Cr. of population effectively. It is our foremost responsibility to come together and win over this unprecedented crisis which has posed an inevitable threat to human life,” stated Vivek Tiwari, MD & CEO, SATYA MicroCapital Limited.
