The Central Government has advised the States/UTs to set up Help Desks with the aid of Volunteer Groups, NGOs, and CSOs. The Help Desk Team set up at the hospitals can support in managing the patients being admitted in the hospital effectively and facilitate better interaction between hospital staff and patients’ attendants. They may also help in increasing awareness about the necessary safety precautions and appropriate COVID-19 behavior amongst patients. Similarly, NGOs can also help in other activities at hospitals that facilitate the attendants' grievance redressal and in logistic requirements such as helping with discharging, liasoning with cremation grounds and burial grounds, etc.
