Economies faced financial upheavals due to business coming to a standstill as the world went into lockdown. During this time of global crisis, Apollo Hospitals has led from the front and demonstrated agility in continuing to serve both Covid and non Covid patients and ensuring an iron curtain between them.”
“Our technology as well as safety and infection control protocols are of international standards. As the nation begins unlocking, we are confident of weathering the initial setbacks that we faced due to the lockdowns. Our hospital operations, including surgical work, are showing good improvement in the last two months and we have, in addition to our work for Covid-19, also accelerated the work on other diseases, especially NCDs. We have also been able to successfully complete several transplants, which portends well for the future. Both the World Bank and the United Nations predicted that the second decade of the 21st century would see 80% of deaths coming from NCDs. For India, a majority of these deaths would occur in the 31-50 age group”, he added.
