Javed Khan, an auto-driver from Bhopal has converted his auto-rickshaw into a makeshift ambulance for the needy. The 34-year-old has also installed an oxygen supply system in his auto. He did all this with the money he and his wife had saved. Given the situation in the country, he offers his auto for free to Covid patients and in the past three days, Javed has turned a messiah for at least 10 people.
According to the media reports, Javed was left shocked to see people struggling in the wake of 2nd Covid wave. He then realised that as a citizen he needed to do something to help others and couldn’t simply just sit at home. On the advice of his family, he converted his auto-rickshaw into a mobile ambulance, complete with oxygen, sanitisers, and medicines
Soon after this news broke, social media is praising not just Javed, but his wife too for this Nobel gesture.

The Supreme Court on Friday, during a hearing taking suo motu cognisance of India’s ongoing Covid situation, said that the Centre should adopt a national immunization model ahead of vaccination drive as it will not be able to pay for vaccines. The court also said that the health infrastructure inherited over the past 70 years is not adequate. It highlighted that the health care sector has come to a breaking point.
