In the wake of the second wave of the pandemic, there is a dire need to build capacity and support the health care system with existing infrastructure. Extending its support to India’s healthcare system and in interest of the general public, OYO has also rolled out a feature on the OYO app, wherein users can now book their quarantine stay through the app itself.
Last year, to support the nation’s efforts to break the chain and flatten the curve of the virus, OYO Care tied up with several hospitals, ministries and government authorities to offer quarantine facilities for stranded tourists, frontliners, the medical community and asymptomatic patients. In light of the rising cases in the second wave of COVID-19, OYO has announced that it will reinitiate the OYO Care initiative to further support the quarantine requirements of COVID-19 positive patients as well.
Sharing his thoughts on the COVID-19 second wave related efforts, Rohit Kapoor, CEO of India and South-East Asia (INSEA) at OYO said: “OYO’s presence across India enables us to support the healthcare system that has been stretched for space during such times. We are dedicating select properties across cities as quarantine and isolation facilities for COVID-19 positive patients.”
OYO Care has tied up with 30+ hospitals, several government authorities and private sector companies to open its doors to dedicated properties across cities as self-isolation and quarantine centres for health care professionals, frontline workers and offer a safe stay for relatives of COVID-19 positive patients near hospitals and several others.
Currently, it is also serving the accommodation requirements for the employees of local government bodies. OYO will also provide accommodation for post-travel isolation for tourists, and individuals travelling for emergencies, and other reasons.
