Force Motors has supplied one thousand ambulances to the Andhra Pradesh government. This includes 130 advanced and 282 basic life support ambulances and over 656 mobile medical units to upgrade the state’s healthcare infrastructure and reduce response time. The mobile medical units delivered to the Andhra Pradesh government are equipped with Covid-screening facilities. Prasan Firodia, MD, Force Motors, said the ongoing pandemic had suddenly highlighted the inadequacies in the healthcare system. “The local administrations and state governments are responding quickly by upgrading their public health delivery systems,” Firodia said. In view of the surge in cases, the authorities are going all out to strengthen the healthcare infrastructure. The state governments and local administrations are planning to have a mix of all types of ambulances, which can be deployed as the situation warrants, he added.
