JULY 23, 2020: As the state of Andhra Pradesh and Anantapur District where Puttaparthi is situated is seeing a spike in number of positive cases, Sri. Gandham Chandrudu, the district collector of Anantapur paid a visit to Puttaparthi to explore the option of having a full fledged covid facility in Puttaparthi to cater to the huge spike of positive cases. As many of you are aware, there was a quarantine center that was started in the month of April, near the Super Speciality hospital. This quarantine center will now be converted into a full fledged covid hospital with all the critical care facilities which will be manned by the doctors of Sri Sathya Sai Super Speciality hospital and Sri Sathya Sai General Hospital
Sri. Gandham Chandrudu, District collector of Anantapur, later attended evening bhajans at Sai Kulwanth Hall and had his maiden darshan at Swami's Lotus Feet. During this time of this pandemic, he prayed for the divine intervention as all the human efforts are being already tested and tried.
May Swami give our Covid warriors all the energy and strength to serve this nation during these testing times of pandemic which has brought the world to a standstill. Once again Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust has plunged into action, at the time of need, taking our beloved Bhagawan's legacy of serving the needy forward and onward. Let us all intensify our prayers
