Former India cricketer Yuvraj Singh has now come forward to help the country in its fight against the coronavirus. Yuvraj, on Tuesday, announced that his foundation YouWeCan will set up 1000 beds in hospitals across India for critical care of COVID-19 patients.

The initiative by the Yuvraj Singh foundation has been launched in partnership with One Digital Entertainment to help and enhance the capacity of government, army, autonomous and charitable hospitals to defeat the virus. Apart from oxygen-equipped beds, the foundation will also provide ventilators, BiPAP machines and other essential medical equipment to various hospitals.

Although the daily number of COVID-19 cases have dropped below 2 Lakh as the second wave is on its last legs, the danger of the virus is still there as there are speculations of the third wave arriving soon.

Informing the same on Twitter, Yuvraj wrote, “The 2nd wave of COVID has been devastating. Countless lives have been lost & thousands have had to struggle. #Mission1000Beds is an effort to enhance the critical care capacity of hospitals. Join our fight so that we can save valuable lives. @YouWeCan.”

India was going through a devastating second wave in April-May as the daily cases rose above 4 Lakh and people were gasping for oxygen and medicines as the medical infrastructure almost came to a collapse.

YouWeCan has started installing beds in various hospitals already in Delhi-NCR, Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Uttarakhand, Rajasthan, Telangana, Karnataka, and Madhya Pradesh.
