Free reliable and trustworthy information dissemination by doctors is a boon in this era of misinformation vaccinations,” he said. “Launched earlier this year, Eka Care has already on-boarded hundreds of doctors, who are currently serving only COVID-related symptoms. While the primary aim of the platform is to create a secure and connected ecosystem for doctors and patients, it has been focusing on timely immunization of all to help India fight the second wave.”
