Jamshedpur, June 23: The second wave of Coronavirus put tremendous strain on healthcare infrastructure as the number of patients rose rapidly. Hospital beds, oxygen cylinders, ventilators and other necessary medical equipment and facilities were in short supply and people were often travelling great distances in the hope of getting medical support. While the Government was taking several steps to increase and strengthen existing healthcare infrastructure, CII, CII Foundation, and affiliates stepped in to augment existing COVID-care facilities.
