Truecaller, the popular call identification app for smartphones, has now added a new COVID Hospital Directory for all users in India. This will include contact details including telephone numbers and addresses of COVID designated hospitals across India. Truecaller is sourcing this information from official government databases and users will be able to search within the database to find the hospital details they need.
The COVID Hospital directory will be available for all Truecaller users using the Android app and irrespective of whether you are on the free tier or have a Truecaller Premium or Truecaller Gold subscription. The COVID Hospital Directory can be accessed either via the dialer functionality or from the separate menu addition. In an official statement, Rishit Jhunjhunawala, MD India, Trucaller said “ We wanted to quickly introduce a simple directory of important numbers for Covid related services. We have started with this hospital list and we are working to add more verified sources soon. This is one among the many ways we are helping with Covid relief efforts.”
The company did clarify that the app in no way promises or guarantees a bed or any medical facilities at any of the listed hospitals. The Truecaller update is now rolling out and in case you don’t see the COVID Hospital Directory just yet, it should be available in the next few hours.
