Patients are facing some problems due to the ongoing lockdown.  Ambulances and CNG auto rickshaws have been arranged for the patients.  Patients can use these vehicles to go to the hospital if they want.  It doesn't cost any money; the whole service is free!  Chittagong's Double Mooring Police Station has taken this exceptional initiative considering the problems of the patients.

 Chittagong Metropolitan Police Deputy Commissioner (West) Md. Abdul Warish officially inaugurated the program at the Double Mooring Police Station premises on Thursday afternoon.  Additional Deputy Commissioner Pankaj Dutta, Assistant Commissioner Md. Mahamudul Hasan Mamun, Officer-in-Charge Mohammad Mohsin, Inspector (Investigation) Masud Rana and others were present.

 Md. Abdul Warish said, ‘Patients are in trouble as the traffic is stopped.  Even if the able-bodied can call an ambulance, the middle and low-income people are in trouble.  This is our free transportation service considering all of them. '

Double Mooring Police Station OC Mohammad Mohsin said the initiative was taken by Double Mooring Police Station to alleviate the transport crisis in Corona.  Mashraful Islam Shakil stood by the initiative of the police station.  He provided an ambulance.  Then social organizations Dhanialapara Bandhu Mahal, Dolphin Club in Muhuripara area, RSK Club in CDA residential area, SS Trading in Agrabad, Saima Properties in PahartaliJharnapara and Md. Asad Khan of Pathantuli Khan Bari.  They each provide one CNG for patient transport.

He said, “The free transport service will be available 24 hours a day.  If you call 01320052749, the car will come in front of the house and take you away.  We will also deliver home from the hospital.  

For the time being, these activities will be limited to the Double Mooring police station area.  However, this service will be provided without considering the condition of the patient.  CNG services will be available until public transport is closed.  But the ambulance service will continue, said OC Mohammad Mohsin.”
