Responding to the government’s appeal to the private sector to step forward in the fight against COVID-19, Minari Shah, Head CSR and Director Corporate Communications, Amazon India says “COVID-19 has impacted communities across the country. Relay of accurate information especially regarding preventive measures is the need of the hour for a voluntary and willing effort by people to control the pandemic. We are keen to use our digital channels to disseminate authentic information about the Do’s and Don’ts about coronavirus to people in far corners of India and help keep India safe.”

The partnership will identify volunteers, namely ‘COVID-19 Digital Heroes’ through digital outreach across various platforms. Students who are a part of Amazon’s ALEXA student ambassador program will also act as COVID-19 Digital Heroes and help amplify the campaign further. The campaign’s content will be aligned with the official communication and guidance from the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and the Aarogya Setu app that has been launched recently.(IANS)
