This is not the first time that the company has made such an initiative. Earlier, in April 2020, when the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic had hit India, Mercedes-Benz India had set up a temporary hospital with medical facilities and isolation wards for COVID-19 patients in Mhalunge-Ingale village, Chakan Khed, near its manufacturing plant. Back then the company has also directly supported the Grant Medical Foundation (Ruby Hall Clinic) by donating ventilators.
