AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon have tied up with iHeartMedia to deliver nearly 40,000 phone chargers for free to COVID-19 patients in the hospitals, says T-Mobile’s press release.
T-Mobile says it has already donated 20,000 chargers to hospitals and Verizon says it’s providing thousands of chargers to healthcare providers in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Seattle, and many more cities. AT&T says it will donate thousands of chargers to hospitals in various cities across the US. Many hospitals in cities like – New York City, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Seattle, Boston, San Diego, Detroit, and Philadelphia across the US have received charges for patients.
AT&T further said it will also be providing chargers to cities that have been hit the hardest by the virus and the donation efforts by wireless carriers and iHeartMedia are worth the praise and local communities are coming forward to collect phone chargers for the patients stuck in the hospitals for treatment.
While there is a global war against the virus, it is clear that the hospitals are hit the hardest in the world and patients need to rely on their mobiles to remain in touch with their family during the treatment and these charges which charge their handsets act as connectivity for them with their loved ones.
If more and more organizations come forward to support the governments or hospitals the world will surely win over the pandemic
