It was unprecedented time for everyone when COVID -19 pandemic hit countries, business and people irrespective of class, caste and boundaries. For business being shut down for over 100 days, people deprived of livelihood and still no clarity on the future with stringent lockdown guidelines to be followed for people safety. Ziqitza Healthcare being an emergency service provider not only had to ensure the services are delivered but to scale up to manage additional responsibilities shared by respective state governments. At Ziqitza Limited, was at the forefront with the various state government and corporates to ensure that our services which are so critical are not hampered at all. The company ensured the services were not disrupted in fact it scaled its operations to service more customers. Few highlights for 2019-20 as below:

· The calls received at our call centers at 108 /102 showcase that we have been able to manage an average of calls before and after COVID @2.5 lac calls a month

· In case of 104 Helpline it was an opportunity for us scale up the business. The average calls a month of 32k moved to 3.94 lac calls a month
