"Health ATM will be set up for health screening during Chardham Yatra. With this facility, the devotees will get a lot of conveniences. This would be a good step for the strengthening of medical facilities on the Char Dham Yatra route," Chief Minister Dhami added.

A patient's weight, height, blood pressure, blood sugar, body temperature, and oxygen saturation levels can all be determined with a health ATM. Its features include automated health checks, live video consultations with doctors, instant health reports and prescriptions, and instant medicine delivery.

"The health facilities are being continuously improved so that the pilgrims do not face any health-related problems during the Chardham Yatra," he added.
