The second wave of coronavirus has hit the country really bad. A lot of people are struggling to find hospital beds, oxygen cylinders, medicines and other medical resources to treat their families and friends suffering from the virus infection. To make it easier, the government has launched a platform where users can find important leads through crowdsourced information.
The service is available on the covid resource dashboard of MyGov India website- https://self4society.mygov.in/covid-resources. It has been developed with support from Sprinklr.
The update was shared by the official Twitter handle of MyGov India via a post.
“We are here to help! Get the latest crowdsourced information on #beds, #oxygen, #plasma and more available at http://self4society.mygov.in/covid-resources…This is a crowdsourced effort; do verify and share feedback”, reads the tweet.
However, most of the information on the link is being updated real time by individuals who are doing their best to share knowledge. Users are advised to verify the information and in case any information is found to the contrary, the same should be informed to MyGov.
In another news, homegrown Twitter rival Koo has also announced that people can find leads for hospital beds, oxygen cylinders and other resources on its platform. The social media platform will also allow potential plasma donors to sport badges on their profile pictures for increased visibility. It will also add a new feature that would notify users about vaccine availability.
