As India’s active Coronavirus cases grow, an increasing concern on its detection and containment is also taken into account. A number of Indian enterprises and startups are coming forward to extend their support for this in either creating awareness on Coronavirus or are helping locate healthcare facilities for diagnosis and treatment.
MapmyIndia Maps and the company’s Move app is one among them that is doing its part to enable citizens to view, locate & reach nearby Coronavirus testing labs, isolation and treatment facilities – both government and non-government.
Users can see and add their own photos & reviews about these places, in terms of amenities/hygiene, etc., helping other users with critical & updated information on the condition of each facility. Early detection and isolation of infected persons are two very critical measures that help contain an epidemic.
MapmyIndia says its resources are designed to do both. Quick and timely action triggers a virtuous circle that not only helps mitigate the spread of Coronavirus but also save lives.
To stay informed, MapmyIndia has offered service through these ways:
