“The ambulance control room has been set up in the Sector 10 Civil Hospital and will work 24 hours through the week under the supervision of Officer on Special Duty Anju Chaudhary,” said a spokesperson of the district administration.

“A total of 24 ambulances have been linked with the control room, which will be equipped with oxygen and advanced life saving equipment,” he said.

Officials said the control room has been set up on the directions of Gurgaon Deputy Commissioner Yash Garg so that “serious patients suffering from Coronavirus can get medical facilities at the earliest”.
