Force Motors Managing Director Prasan Firodia said:"The ongoing pandemic has suddenly highlighted the inadequacies in our healthcare system. It is very heartening to see that local administrations and state governments are responding quickly by upgrading their public health delivery systems."

The company said all of its ambulances comply with all the provisions of the recently introduced National Ambulance Code.

The Dr Abhay Firodia Group has also earmarked Rs 25 crore to support various COVID-19 relief activities by supporting upgradation of healthcare infrastructure and facilitating mobile clinic/testing capabilities that have treated over 10 lakh patients during the lockdown period, the statement said.
