Truecaller has launched a COVID-19 hospital directory in India. With the help of this directory, users can access the telephone numbers and address details of the coronavirus hospitals designated by the government. The directory is built right into the app, and users can access it through the menu or dialler. Users can click on the hospital directory and access the contact details of the selected hospital.
Besides searching for hospitals, the directory will also help users look for care facilities. The hospital directory is available for multiple states, and the data available has been sourced from official government databases.
Truecaller clarifies that the directory is intended to make it easy for users to search for the information, but it can not assure the availability of hospital beds. Truecaller says that the directory will be updated every day to ensure that as many hospital phone numbers from as many areas in India are available.
The Covid Healthcare Directory is now available. In case you are unable to see the feature, update your app on the Play Store. As of now, it is only available on Android devices and in the beta version.
Speaking about the launch of its new feature, Rishit Jhunjhunwala, MD India of Truecaller, said the company has started with the hospital list for now. They are working on adding more resources. Stating that this is one way Truecaller is helping people, Rishit added that they offer support to the people in need.
