In view of the dramatic upswing in infection rates through the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in India, with diagnostics services and testing facilities being over-burdened, Spinny, a new age pre-owned car end-to-end platform has tied up with 1MG Labs to provide on-the-spot RT-PCR collections across Delhi, Mumbai and Gurgaon from the safety of one’s car.
Spinny has now provided delivery trucks used to deliver cars to its customers to 1MG Labs to conduct speedy on-the-spot drive-through collections in Sectors 29, 21 and 56 in Gurgaon; and select locations in Delhi and Bengaluru. Anybody experiencing COVID-19 like symptoms can avail of sampling at these select locations, starting today.
Spinny is supporting 1MG labs in organizing sample collections on the spot as per ICMR guidelines and reports within 36 hours as per subsidised and government approved rates. Currently, there are around 2.6 Cr COVID cases in India, claiming around 2.91 Lac lives.
Says Niraj Singh, CEO and Founder, Spinny – “The need of the hour is to be there, on the road, in plain sight and aid our nation’s diagnostics and healthcare system. Also, driving to a test centre in one’s personal car is comparatively less riskier than visiting a more crowded space, at this juncture. We at Spinny do not think of this as a service, but as a necessity and laud 1MG’s efforts.
