Shaheen Group of Institutions in Bidar has actually now signed up with hands with the district administration in its fight versus COVID-19 by providing among its hostels for establishing a COVID-19 care centre.
The 300- bed hostel near Shahapur Gate in the city, which has all the necessary amenities, was turned over to the district administration in a simple inaugural ceremony recently.
Bidar Deputy Commissioner Ramachandran R. and President of Zilla Panchayat Gyanendra Kumar Gangwar and Shaheen Group chairman Abdul Qadir were amongst the dignitaries present on the occasion. “The COVID-19 care centre is fully equipped with all features, including oxygen cylinder pipelines. We have actually currently had a COVID-19 centre at Zeera Function Hall and this will be the 2nd one. We are planning to include more such centres in the days to come. I am very delighted to see that civil society organisations such as Shaheen Group are progressively joining hands with the district administration to fight the pandemic,” Mr. Ramachandran stated.
Mr. Gangwar remembered how the Shaheen Group helped the administration to gather throat swab samples from thousands of people when the novel coronavirus revealed its presence for the first time in the city.
