Coronavirus Outbreak: Ajay Devgn Pays For Oxygen, Ventilators At New Dharavi Quarantine Facility, Says: ‘Urge You To Also Donate’
In the wake of Coronavirus outbreak, the positive cases in the country are only increasing and how! Having said that, the hospital beds and all the medical equipments that are required currently are falling short. In this scenario, almost everyone is doing their bit and contributing towards Coronavirus relief, and amongst many, Ajay Devgn stepped up and decided to pay for oxygen cylinders, ventilators at new Dharavi quarantine facility. Kiran Dighavkar, an assistant municipal commissioner of G-North, told Mumbai Mirror that the actor readily paid for invaluable equipment for the facility.

 “We told him we needed oxygen cylinders for all 200 beds and two portable ventilators. He readily agreed to pay for them,” he said. According to the portal, the actor made the contribution through his Ajay Devgn Films Foundation. BMC official said that the actor had earlier provided ration kits for 700 families in Dharavi. That’s not it, the Shivaay actor even shared a tweet on the same and had written, “Dharavi is at the epicentre of the Covid19 outbreak. Many citizens supported by MCGM are working tirelessly on the ground through NGOs to provide the needy with ration & hygiene kits. We at ADFF are helping 700 families. I urge you to also donate.”

After Dharavi became the epicentre, they have constructed 200-bed facility along with four doctors and 12 nurses for them to assist and 20 ward attendants. The facility will only be used for Covid-19 patients, except those that are very critical. The number of positive cases is quite high in Maharashtra, especially Mumbai which is said to be around 34000 active cases, according to CM Uddhav Thackeray.


Earlier, Ajay Devgn has also made a huge contribution to the daily wage workers who were affected by the lockdown in the country.
