The Mission Corona campaign brings together 120 community radio stations across India to produce and broadcast Covid-19 awareness programs in myriad languages and dialects.

Supported by UNICEF, and implemented by the Community Radio Association, the Mission Corona series on Gurgaon Ki Awaaz consists of 10 episodes which were recorded with doctors from Medeor Hospital, Manesar, a dedicated Covid-19 hospital. Each episode was followed by a live phone-in quiz encouraging listeners to answer a series of questions based on the information given by the doctor. People giving the correct answer were “rewarded” with a song of their choice played first in the line-up of the day’s music requests. The purpose of the quiz was to encourage active listening, and to make an engaging and fun program.
