It is not said that ‘necessity is the mother of invention’. In the hour of trouble, many such requirements come before the human being, for which he himself has to find some way out. A similar incident has come to light in this era of Corona crisis.
Javed Khan, a 34-year-old auto driver in Bhopal, has converted his autorickshaw into an ambulance to help COVID patients. Javed Khan is circling around COVID-19 patients from hospitals in Bhopal in his autorickshaw ambulance. He has helped more than 12 people in the last two weeks. Khan bought his autorickshaw on loan and converted it into an ambulance, for which he had to sell his wife’s gold ornaments for 10,000 rupees.
Speaking to Hindustan Times, Javed Khan said that while he was reading about the plight of people to reach hospitals during lockdown, the idea of converting autorickshaws into ambulances to transport COVID-19 patients to hospitals Came to mind He does not take any money for transporting and transporting patients from hospitals.
Javed said, “I feel that it is not enough to help them reach the hospital, so I thought of converting my auto into a mini ambulance.” My wife Kishwar Khan helped me financially by giving me a gold pendant and earrings. I sold it for 10,000 rupees. I posted my number on social media so that people can contact me at any time. “
Oxygen cylinder is installed in auto
Not only to convert the auto into an ambulance, but Javed Khan has also fitted an oxygen cylinder in his auto, which will help those serious patients who are suffering from lack of oxygen due to infection. He said, “Oxygen is one of the most important things for COVID-19 infected patients, so I keep an oxygen cylinder in my auto. It takes 4-5 hours to refill a cylinder in a center in Govindpura and more than eight hours a day. “
Ambulance turned into a motorcycle
Apart from Javed, Aziz Khan of Dhar is another person who is doing something similar. Aziz is a 39-year-old mechanical engineer who is using his motorcycle for the same purpose. He has spent Rs 30,000 to convert the motorcycle into an ambulance, which he is using to transport COVID patients from hospitals. Like Javed, Aziz is also providing a service for free.
Aziz said, “I have been working as a fabricator for the last several years. I read some news that due to the rough road or narrow street people are having difficulty in reaching the hospitals, so I thought about preparing a bike ambulance. I built an ambulance with a bed, an oxygen cylinder and a metal cover and attached it to my bike. In this way I am able to take the patients to a safe hospital. “
