The free dispensary at Sri Ramakrishna Math, Mylapore is now closed and will probably remain so until the lockdown, says the PRO of the Math, Swami Naravarananda.
He says most of the volunteers, paramedical staff and doctors are unable to make it due to lack of transportation facilities. Unless the government provides transportation facilities for the volunteers, they will not be able to open up the dispensary, he adds.
Patients who need medicines on a regular basis have already been given an adequate supply. Those who need medicines during the lockdown on an emergency basis can call the Math at 24621110 and the Math will make arrangements to help them.
