Sonalika Tractors Partners with Growdiesel and modifies CRPF bus into a Corona Testing Mobile Clinic to support Delhi Government to Combat COVID 19

The country’s one of the leading tractor manufacturers which is known for its technology specialisation, Sonalika Tractors collaborates with a Delhi based organisation named Growdiesel and Mr. Vikramjit Sahney to support Delhi Govt. (South District) to convert a CRPF bus into a Corona Testing Mobile Clinic. It will support the patients affected from the global contagion coronavirus. The bus was flagged off on 1st June, 2020 from DM Office, South District by Hon’ble Chief Secretary of Delhi, Sh. Vijay Kumar Dev, in the presence of several government authorities, Sonalika Team, Growdiesel’s team and CRPF dignitaries. The bus was generously donated by CRPF 122 battalion.

This clinic has 2 separations, one for the doctor and other for the patients. It has several equipment to make sterile environment for the doctors as well as the patients that can be even operated through a mobile phone. This Corona Testing Mobile Clinic has a potential to provide door to door sample collection/testing services in contaminated and red zones. It has a facility of inbuilt patient stretcher for transportation of severe patient and also has a sterile system so that materials, surfaces and other citizens are not infected. The clinic is equipped with Artificial Intelligence Enabled Thermal Imaging camera which displays patient’s photo along with his/her temperature automatically as soon as the patient enters this mobile clinic. It also has UV light sterilization, climate control system, contactless sampling windows, automatic sanitizing spray, SS work table, Inflow of Cool & Clean Air, fluorescent lighting, refrigerator for storage of samples and all necessary elements. The van is designed with a potential to do sample collection of over 15000 people per month. The most beautiful feature of this mobile clinic made by Growdiesel is that it can be controlled through a mobile phone. The doctor just needs to have a mobile application in his/her phone and before entering the bus, he/she can switch on the sanitation mechanism from his/her phone which will automatically sterilise the surfaces of the mobile clinic.

Speaking on the Corona Testing Mobile Clinic initiative, Dr. B.M. Mishra, I.A.S, District Magistrate, Delhi {South} said: “We are extremely happy to launch first of its kind Artificial Intelligence enabled Corona Testing Mobile Clinic for the benefit of our residents. We are extremely happy to share that our team efforts in providing a convenient doorstep testing and sampling services became a reality. This would not have been possible without generous donation from our sponsors: Sonalika Tractors and Mr. Vikramjit Sahney. I would also like to extend my gratitude to Dr. AP Maheshwari, Director General, CRPF and battalion 122 for helping us. Their support was something which enabled us to carry out this work. Despite the lockdown, the project was very well executed by Growdiesel Climate Care council. We were happy to have support of everyone.”

Speaking on the Corona Testing Mobile Clinic initiative, Dr. Deepak Mittal, Managing Director, Sonalika Group, said, “Sonalika stands strong in supporting the Govt. of NCT of Delhi, the CRPF and Growdiesel Climate Care Council, to join the fight against the covid-19. Converting the CRPF bus into a Corona Testing Mobile Clinic is a very innovative way to check the spread of the virus by offering the testing as well as quarantine facility at the doorstep of the citizens.”

Speaking on the collaborative initiative, Mrs. Surbhi Mittal, Director – CSR, Sonalika Group, said, “Sonalika, being people-centric, it is part of our core value and we stand committed towards the wellbeing of society. This initiative is one among the host of unique initiatives rolled out by us to support the needy at their doorstep. We look forward to strengthen the society by being a part of this first of its kind initiative, which has been transformed while taking all safeguard measures.”

The clinic was engineered and executed with extreme precision by Growdiesel who is already working with various state governments in sanitation, healthcare, renewable fuel and electric vehicle sector.

Even in these tough times, there were few people who thought of serving the society and in true sense are “corona warriors”.
