The Ola Foundation has started this initiative in collaboration with the Give India Foundation, in which door-to-door oxygen concentrator will be delivered.
If the level is above 94, then oxygen support is not needed.
An initiative named O2 For India Initiative has been launched to provide free oxygen concentrator through Ola app for COVID-19 patients living in home isolation. On the inauguration of this initiative of Ola Foundation-Givindia Foundation, the Deputy Chief Minister of Karnataka and the head of the State COVID Task Force, CNA Narayan said that firstly this service is being implemented in Malleshwaram and Koramangala areas.
Narayan’s office quoted him as saying that the initiative would be expanded throughout the city and all the places where Ola is working. He said, ‘Oxygen concentrator will be given only to those people whose oxygen level is less than 94. People with oxygen levels above 94 do not need it and it will not be given to them. The service has started in Bengaluru with an initial consignment of 500 oxygen cylinders.
10 thousand contractors will serve for service
Narayan informed that Ola and GiveIndia will expand the initiative across the country with a maximum of 10,000 contractors in the coming weeks. The beneficiary will have to deposit a security deposit of Rs 5,000 per contractor. This money will be returned later. Consumers can request oxygen concentrator through Ola app by giving some basic information. After the request, it will be verified and after that Ola will deliver the container to the consumer’s home in one of his cabs along with his specially trained driver.
Ola will withdraw the contractor when the need ends
Once the patient’s condition improves and the need for a contractor ends, Ola will withdraw the equipment and return it to GiveIndia for the purpose of getting it ready for other patients. KV Vinod, managing director (coalitions and government partnerships), IndiaIndia said, “With this initiative, we will provide oxygen concentrators directly to patients recovering from home sickness or being isolated.”
