Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Chest Diseases is the epicenter of all the hospitals in state for COVID-19 cases in Karnataka. A majority of COVID-19 suspects, both under Category A & B are admitted to this facility. The medical practitioners have been struggling to conserve and efficiently utilize the already limited resources available to them.

As an act of gratitude and with the objective of protecting our medical practitioners and healthcare workers, ThoughtFocus, with its India headquarters in Bangalore, has come forward to sponsor protective gears as part of their Pragati COVID Relief Initiative.
Despite extensive efforts to support all medical staff, the global shortage of personal protective equipment, ventilators, masks and gloves has been a cause of concern among those who are already working under extremely stressful conditions.
