BMC launches rapid action to control the Covid-19 suburbs in mumbai

The BMC will launch a rapid action plan on Monday to control the sudden rise in Covid-19 cases in the suburbs. The BMC will bring on board around 50 ambulances that would be donated by an NGO.  

Deputy municipal commissioner Vishwas Shankarwar said screening would be held in particular containment areas in the coming days. “As and when doctors suggest that a particular person with symptoms needs to be tested, swab would be collected,” he said.

In certain areas where the numbers are rising rapidly, a complete lockdown has been proposed not just in the area proper, but also a buffer zone, where nothing except for essential shops would stay open. In areas like Andheri in the western suburbs, where aggressive house-to-house screening in certain pockets has already begun, MLA Ameet Satam said that last week, the ward has screened residents of 120 buildings as well as over 200 hawkers and staff of grocery stores. “All buildings are also advised to have a screening counter at their entrance with a thermometer and an oximeter to screen all external persons entering the building,” he said. BMC has okayed a lockdown in areas at Dindoshi in Malad, said additional commissioner Dilip Sawant.
