Mercedes-Benz India has announced it will set up a temporary hospital in Mhalunge-Ingale village, located in Chakan Khed in Maharashtra, with medical facilities and isolation wards for patients affected with coronavirus.

The German automaker has stated that the hospital is going to have the capacity to treat 1,500 patients. It will be constructed in Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority’s (MHADA) housing area, which has 374 rooms.

Once the coronavirus crisis is over, Mercedes Benz will donate the medical equipment of the hospital to the Civil Hospital of Khed. Other than that the assets of the isolation wards will be donated to the tribal youth hostels, said the company. The automaker will provide logistics support to install the isolation wards.

Furthermore, Mercedes-Benz India has also announced that it has supported Grant Medical Foundation by donating ventilators.

A number of automakers in India have come forward to help the government and medical sector since the coronavirus crisis. Some of them have already announced they are making important medical equipment like ventilators, respirators and face masks.

About 2,322 people in India have been confirmed as being infected with the coronavirus. The virus has killed 62 people in the country.
