They gave a semi-automated bio-chemistry analyser machine to the laboratory.

Officer starts gifting oxymeters

Gurugram: Out to spread the message of health being top priority, Manesar Municipal Commissioner IAS Munish Sharma has started a special campaign. Asking people to think beyond regular gifts on different occasions, he has started gifting oxymeters. “I was shocked when people, including some friends, would call for beds after testing positive but they did not have oxymeters at home. Similarly, in many households with 10-12 family members, only one device was there. Even after getting positive, not every member could check his saturation regularly. So I went ahead gifting my family and friends, oxymeters, sanitisers and similar stuff on birthdays etc,” said Sharma.

Distributing tulsi plants to raise O2

Faridabad: 52-year-old Ashok Malik, a resident of Sector 15-A here, is offering tulsi plant (holy basil) free of cost to anyone with the idea of generating or increasing the oxygen level inside houses in order to fight the Covid pandemic. “I have distributed over 150 plants that have been nurtured in a private nursery over the period of two months,” he said. Malik, who is an employee in the HSVP department here, claimed that tulsi produces more oxygen than any other plant or tree.

Ration kits distributed to needy

Ambala: Roti for Soul, a non-profit organisation, has extended a helping hand to needy families who have been struggling for food during the lockdown. Atul Mahajan, a member of the organisation, said we had prepared ration kits comprising 5 kg flour, 1 kg edible oil, 3 kg rice, sugar, and pulses for needy families. So far nearly 40 such kits have been distributed in Ambala Cantonment and more kits have been kept at a designated place from where needy people can collect those.
