“Present Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation has led to confusion and fear among cancer patients as most of them are fearful of the risk of infection while visiting hospitals and they are confused about the continuation of their treatment.
Additionally, cancer patients undergoing active treatment or those with blood cancers have reduced immunity and they are at a much higher risk of acquiring COVID-19 infection. They need to be more careful about prevention and there is not much information for them in the public domain.
At onco.com, we have taken this responsibility to create awareness about COVID-19 precautions for cancer patients and we are releasing informative videos and articles to spread right information among cancer patients. Onco.com has also initiated a "Coronavirus Helpline" for cancer patients to seek help and guidance regarding their questions and concerns.
As patients are unable to travel and consult doctors, we have also started "Call-Onco" service to help them speak with Oncologists and get specialist guidance regarding their treatment and address their concerns and doubts”.
