This initiative will be progressively rolled out in other metros including Kolkata, Chennai and Hyderabad.

In addition to providing meals, ITC Hotel properties in Jaipur and Goa have provided shower caps for doctors and healthcare workers as well as ensuring availability of sanitisers.

ITC Maratha was identified as one of the quarantine spaces by the Mumbai Municipal Corporation.
