- in
A resident of Dal Lake in Srinagar, Tariq Ahmad Patloo contracted COVID-19 in August 2020 but was unable to get medical attention. In fact, Mr Patloo faced social boycott, and no one helped him to get to the hospital in the city, which is only accessible by boat. Now, the boat owner himself has built a floating ambulance or shikhara ambulance to help COVID-19 patients in the community reach hospitals. He also provides masks, oxygen cylinders and sanitisers for free.
