The Lalit turned into quarantine facility for doctors

New Delhi, March 30 (IANS) The Lalit Suri Hospitality Group has converted its hotel on Barakhamba Road, here, into a quarantine facility for doctors of Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Hospital and G.B. Pant Hospital.

“The Group has extended its support through the hotel to be turned into a quarantine space for the Covid-19 warriors. The doctors serving in the LNJP Hospital and Pant Hospital will be housed at The Lalit New Delhi. The hotel is ensuring proper sanitisation and health checkups for staff,” the hospitality giant said in a statement.

“These are extraordinary times. Covid-19 is one of the toughest crisis faced by the humanity. Everyone must do their bit to fight this pandemic. The need of the hour is to stand together and take care of the affected. Together we can and we will overcome this,” said Jyotsna Suri, Chairperson & Managing Director of the Group.

It is also catering to food and basic needs of transgenders, one of the worst-hit communities, during the lockdown.

“Under the banner of Keshav Suri Foundation, we are reaching out to support the extremely marginalised and probably the worst affected transgender people through different NGOs, such as Kinnar Maa Trust in Mumbai, Sangama in Bangalore and Saksham Trust in Chandigarh. Through these NGOs, we are providing them over 500 kg of flour, groceries, fruits and vegetable,” it said.
