Amid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, Bayer is relentlessly working to support the communities and extending its assistance to the Government of Maharashtra by providing its centre at Chittegaon to set-up a 100 bed Corona Care facility to treat affected patients.

As per the reports, Bayer has been collaborating with the Maharashtra government over the last few months, local officials and other organisations in the fight against COVID-19. Maharashtra which has been one of the worst affected states of COVID-19 is presently accounting for nearly one-third of India’s total cases. Amid this crisis period, Bayer has been providing a wide-range of support to various communities and the administration along with contributing to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund.

 This 4,500 sq. ft. facility at Chittegaon will augment the administration’s infrastructure by adding 100 beds to treat COVID-19 affected patients, says reports.

 “At Bayer our vision is, “Health for all, hunger for none”. It sets the foundation for our future and remains the benchmark against which we measure activities across the organization. We are fortunate and humbled to be in a position to support the administration in these difficult times”, said Simon Wiebusch, Chief Operating Officer, Crop Science Division.


 Moreover, Chandrakant Shelke, Tehsildar, Paithan, Aurangabad district, said, “In today’s times when the pandemic is affecting each one of us, it is essential that we work in unison to counter the challenges. The Maharashtra Government is grateful to Bayer for opening up its plant for setting up of this Corona Care facility. It will go a long way in supporting the local communities.”

Overcoming the challenges posed by this pandemic is critical and at Bayer we remain inspired to collaborate and support various communities.
