Rahul Gandhi launches 'Hello Doctor' medical helpline for COVID patients

He also appealed doctors to enroll themselves to assist people during the pandemic.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday launched a medical advisory helpline called 'Hello Doctor' to help those battling COVID-19, an initiative by All India Congress Committee (AICC) at a time when the country has been ravaged by the second wave of the deadly virus.


Sharing the helpline number, the Congress leader tweeted, "We have launched 'Hello Doctor' a medical advisory helpline. Please call +919983836838 for medical advice."


He also appealed doctors to enroll themselves to assist people during the pandemic, for which he attached a Google form link for self-initiated entries.


"Dear doctors and mental health professionals, we need your help. Please enroll on *link*," he added. The doctors have been provided with two options - 'COVID consultation' and 'Mental Health Consultation' - to enroll themselves in. "India needs to stand together and help our people," said Rahul.


The South Asian country has reported more than 4 lakh new COIVD-19 cases in the last 24 hours - the highest single-day spike since the start of the pandemic.
