The Resorts offered by Mahindra will help in the upcoming days as India is slowly shifting towards stage 3 of a pandemic in which the virus spreads in a community thus increases its infection rate 10 folds. More beds will be needed for the sick soon and the resorts will help by acting as a temporary health care shelter.
India is currently in a lockdown state in order to somehow limit the speed of infection spread and thus reducing the spread of the virus. This lockdown is for the good of us as the less human contact we have the lower the chance of catching the virus and spreading it further.1
