Chief Minister of Haryana, Manohar Lal Khattar inaugurated the Integrated Command and Control Centre (ICCC) for managing the COVID-19 pandemic in Gurugram.
The ICCC will proactively reach out to all the patients who test COVID-19 positive through various means. COVID-19 patients can reach district administration through helpline 1950, specially created WhatApp Chatbot (+919643277788) and state government web portals.
Manohar Lal Khattar asked the officials to ensure the shortest possible reaction time to reach out to all COVID-19 patients and attend to all their needs. He also reviewed the current COVID-19 cases in the state and directed officials to integrate their efforts to ensure a comprehensive response of those afflicted by the pandemic.
With the help of ICCC, the district administration will reach out to every COVID-19 patient and provide a range of services through a single integrated dashboard. The integrated functions will help in keeping track of all patients who have tested COVID-19 positive.
Services such as making hospital beds available for serious cases, online doctor consultations, oxygen refilling, ambulance, funeral arrangements and food will be provided through a network of partners working with the administration. These will be coordinated by the ICCC working with all the agencies involved in relief operations.
The ICCC will also consolidate and provide all relevant data for real-time analysis and trend prediction of the COVID-19 spread and take policy decisions in advance. The ICCC will be housed within the Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA). The GIS team of GMDA has built the integrated dashboard that powers the ICCC to operationalize the full range of services to the patients.
The ICCC is manned by an integrated team drawn from the staff of Deputy Commissioner, Gurugram, GMDA, the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram and citizen volunteers. In the coming days, the ICCC will also provide services in guiding patients to available beds, vaccination centres and enhance testing and tracking of COVID-19 infections to break the chain.
