As the Delhi government is overwhelmed with the rising number of cases in the second wave of Covid-19, leading to a severe shortage of hospital beds and oxygen supply, several NGOs have stepped in to lend a helping hand. Doctors For You (DFY) is one such NGO that has been playing a crucial role in the NCR in providing care to Covid-19 patients, at the four centres run by them. One such centre has been set up in a banquet hall, located just across the road from the LNJP Hospital, the largest Covid—care facility in Delhi. The 100-bedded facility has about 70 bed equipped with oxygen supply. The centre became functional on April 8, 2021, and since then over 200 patients have been treated here. The facility is run by DFY and the support is given by the Lok Nayak Hospital in the form of medical consumables. The administration and staff including nurses, doctors and paramedical staff, has been provided by DFY.

President of DFY, Dr Rajat Jain tells Media India Group about the role played by his organisation in combating the second wave.
