The civic body in a release said that the team will visit COVID-19 patients under home isolation and will check their blood pressure, oxygen levels and other vital parameters. They will also provide them with necessary medications as and when needed. In all, 75 such teams have been formed. The teams will also keep an eye on whether the patients are developing obvious symptoms or not and will share their reports with the concerned doctor. Based on these reports, the doctor will also conduct a home visit for patients for whom it is needed. Each team will visit 10 patients in a day.
