Amid the COVID-19 crisis, citizens of Mumbai can now get information about the availability of intensive care unit (ICU) beds and ventilators in hospitals of the city through a new mobile app, Mayor Kishori Pednekar has said.
It would help people during emergency situations, she said after launching the Air-Venti app on Wednesday. The Air-Venti app was developed by Octaware Technologies in partnership with Probity Soft for Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai.
"The app would help citizens in finding about the availability of ICU beds and ventilators in Mumbai hospitals," Pednekar told reporters.
The app is connected to the dashboard of the city's disaster control room and its link can also be accessed through the Mumbai civic body's app, she said.
The Air-Venti app can be downloaded through the Google Play Store, she added.
Till Wednesday, Mumbai reported 61,501 COVID-19 cases and 3,242 deaths due to the disease.
