Hotel chain OYO has been working closely with Apollo Hospitals to develop and support accommodation requirements of suspected Covid19 patients requiring quarantine/self-isolation. This is part of Project Stay I (Stay isolated) where Apollo hospitals are partnering with select hotel brands to create isolation rooms in hotels with light medical supervision for quarantine and creating a barrier before people come into the hospitals.
As part of the partnership envisaged, the chain is offering sanitised beds and facilities in certain Covid19 exclusive hotels identified within its network in the proximity of Apollo Hospitals in six cities of Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Chennai, Bengaluru and Kolkata for the purposes of self-quarantine and isolation for suspected Covid19 patients that require medical observation and supervision. Starting with hotels in Hyderabad and Bengaluru, Delhi is the next city that OYO will be assisting Apollo.
The pricing of this has been developed in consultation with Apollo Hospitals so that the pay-per-use facilities are both affordable and accessible while assuring the requisite medical care.
Ritesh Agarwal, founder and group CEO said: “We want to work with state governments and private institutions to problem solve and assist in the fight against COVID-19. Our partnership with Apollo Hospitals has been developed to ensure we utilise capacity where possible to create highly sanitised pay per use quarantine facilities under the guidance and supervision of medical professionals.”
