Uber launches UberMedic service exclusive for healthcare workers in India

Uber launches UberMedic service exclusive for healthcare workers in India

While everyone is staying at home scared about falling prey to the deadly virus, healthcare workers are the real heroes fighting against it. As a reason, they need to be treated very specially. As a helping hand, the famous ride-hailing giant Uber has launched a special service exclusively for the healthcare workers in India called the UberMedic. The medical professionals in India can book a cab from their homes to the healthcare centers using the UberMedic service launched by Uber.

The app-based cabs like Uber and Ola have suspended their services in India as the country was under complete lockdown. This has made it difficult for people in essential services to commute to their workplaces. However, among all the essential services, the most important services are being provided by doctors and other healthcare workers. Keeping that in mind, Uber came up with this brilliant UberMedic idea. As per the company, they have chosen only top-rated drivers and dedicated cars for UberMedic services. All the drivers who have been picked up for this special project are well aware of COVID-19 safety protocols.

Along with this project, Uber has also partnered with some hospitals for the UberMedic services and they are likely to provide personal protective equipment (PPE) to drivers, which would comprise of hand sanitizers, safety gloves, face masks, and disinfectant sprays. "Uber will facilitate top-rated drivers and dedicated cars to the hospitals through its platform. Keeping the safety of drivers in mind, and in line with government advisory, we will work with partner hospitals to provide drivers with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including hand sanitizers, gloves, disinfectant sprays and face masks," says Uber.
