With people stuck at home because of the lockdown, NKDA has arranged for counselling over video call to respond to Covid-19 queries from New Town residents.

The telemedicine facility will be available from Monday to Friday, 1 pm to 3.30pm, with a half-hour break from 2pm. The Skype name for the call is NKDA Health Centre.

“NKDA has two medical officers who run our health centre. Earlier, we had started a WhatsApp service for them to address queries related to infection symptoms. It did not work out. From Wednesday, we have started a video call service instead,” said NKDA chairman Debashis Sen.
