Ola Has Now Started Emergency Trips In Gurgaon For Non-COVID-19 Patients

The lockdown has led to the termination of all major transport facilities in the country. As COVID-19 is the topic of the hour, patients with symptoms of the infection are given prime importance now. However, there are thousands of other people who have symptoms of thyroid, PCOS, diabetes, kidney-related issues and more. Amid the shutdown, they are unable to take their routine treatments properly. Considering the situation, Ola has now started a special service in Gurgaon for non-COVID 19 patients.
