New Delhi: For nearly a month now, a government vehicle has been ferrying a young reporter from a community radio station to and fro her recording studio in Sector 31, Gurugram. Preeti Jhakra has been playing the all-important role of linking a large number of people, especially migrant labourers working in a 10-km radius around the studio, to schemes and plans of the city administration designed to combat COVID-19 spread.
Gurugram is known as a medical tourism hub, given that it has some big names in private healthcare such as Fortis, Medanta and Artemis.
However, in terms of government-run hospitals, Gurgaon is fairly weak. The old Civil Hospital is being demolished and will be re-built. All health services have been shifted to the Civil Hospital in Sector 10.
The city also has Primary Health Centre or PHCs in urban villages mostly catering to the lakhs of migrant workers who live and work in Gurgaon and who cannot afford private healthcare.
