Bhopal, India — As coronavirus infections and deaths soar to record daily highs in India, the pandemic has galvanised people who are determined to help others in whatever way they can.

One such person is auto-rickshaw driver Mohammad Javed Khan who sold his wife’s jewellery and converted his three-wheeled vehicle into a small ambulance, fitting it out with an oxygen cylinder, an oximeter to measure oxygen levels in the blood, and other medical supplies.

Mr Khan, 34, felt compelled to help the poor people who could not afford an ambulance to carry their relatives infected with Covid-19 to hospital.
