Uber facilitates help for its users during emergencies

What if a medical emergency occurs in the middle of the night? What if you don’t have a personal means of transportation, or you just don’t know how to drive? What will you do?

According to the DGHS data, nearly 50,000 people have been infected with the dengue virus so far this year in a country of 180 million (Source: bdnews24.com). Whether it’s dengue fever or a stroke, whenever an emergency occurs, the biggest problem any of us can face is the absence of proper transportation.

Situations like seizures or sudden chest pains or even pregnancy issues -- all these require instant medical help. Getting a CNG or calling an ambulance can be time consuming for apparent reasons, especially in the middle of the night. On the other hand, sometimes even ambulances aren’t available.  In such cases, Uber can come handy for you. Uber provides services 24/7 in Dhaka, Chittagong and Sylhet.

To book a ride, just tap the app, insert pickup and destination and place your ride request. Within a few minutes, the Uber ride will be in front of your door in the time of need.
