NEW DELHI: While the civic bodies have started telecounselling for Covid patients in home isolation, South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) has gone a step ahead with videoconferencing from Monday.

It has formed a team of doctors at Tilak Nagar Hospital for attending to Covid patients from any part of Delhi online during duty hours. However, people will need to book in advance.

SDMC mayor Mukesh Suryan said that due to the surge in Covid-19 cases, patients at home isolation had been increasing. “SDMC has started a Covid helpline to provide proper consultation and guidance through experienced doctors,” Suryan said. They can get tele and video consultation on 9999019340, 9999019375, 9999019426 and 9999019745, which will be operational 24x7.

Keeping the surge in mind, SDMC has also arranged 100 oxygen beds and installed two oxygen plants at Mata Gujri Hospital in Tilak Nagar. Sixty oxygen beds have been made available at Purnima Sethi Hospital in Kalkaji and an oxygen plant has been installed. At Chest Clinic and TB Hospital in Nehru Nagar, 40 beds with oxygen supply have been provided and a plant has been installed.

Over 200 people have already used the Covid Mitra helpline started by the east corporation on Saturday. A team of doctors from Swami Dayanand Hospital is offering teleconsultation 24x7 through it.

“People can call on 22119747, 22314028 (extn 272) while they can also talk or WhatsApp their queries/prescription to Dr Nitin Singh on 9560840823 and Dr Rajkumar Sanjay on 9821071650, who will be available from 9am to 4pm,” said nodal officer Dr Gladbin Tyagi.

“We are promoting the facility through social media because this time, people need more psychological treatment than medicines. Infected people mostly have mild symptoms and they are calling to clarify their fears/concerns,” he added.

North Delhi Municipal Corporation is contacting the Covid patients in home isolation, as per the list provided by the district administration, through 65 centres, including polyclinics. “We are contacting the patients from 9am to 3pm regularly to understand if they require any help,” it said. The corporation is also running the helpline 155304 round the clock.
