Bollywood star Sonu Sood has been actively helping people amid this ongoing pandemic. He has been trying to help as many people as possible during the second wave of COVID-19 with oxygen, beds, and medicines.
Recently, he had ordered oxygen plants. These plants will now be installed at hospitals in different states. Currently, Sonu and his team are in the process of setting up an oxygen plant at Kurnool Government Hospital which will be followed by setting the next one at District Hospital, Atmakur, Nellore.
He had already acquired all the necessary permissions from the municipal commissioner, the collector and other authorities. This plant will come out as a great help for thousands of people living in Kurnool and Nellore and the other neighbouring villages with providing oxygen to them during these testing times.
Speaking about the plant at Kurnool Government Hospital, the district collector S.Ramsundar Reddy IAS said, “We are really thankful to Sonu Sood for his humanitarian gesture. The oxygen plant arranged by him will help in treating 150 to 200 Covid patients at Kurnool Government Hospital every day.”
