COVID-19 in AAMCHIMumbai
July 16, 2020
Today the situation is at its worst especially in Mumbai, where we are having 84,500+ COVID-19 positive cases. Every medical firm and scientists around the globe are trying to find effective medicine or vaccine for this virus. To control the situation in Mumbai, the government has extended the lockdown till 19th July 2020 in some places, where cases are booming. With the continuous efforts of the medical team and police the BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has achieved a doubling-rate the number of days taken to double the caseload— of 50 days for COVID-19 cases in Mumbai, a top official said here on Monday.
This was possible because of the civic body’s ‘open testing policy’, implying tests without prescriptions, making it the only city in the country to implement it. But the total positive cases have come down from 1,400 to 1,200 now.
Of these 1,200 positive cases, the symptomatic cases are less than 200, so the BMC needs only 200 beds daily, the civic chief said.
Even the BMC’s discharge rate now stands at 70 percent, and on Sunday, after allotting beds to all patients, there were still 7,000 COVID-19 beds plus 250 ICU beds lying vacant, said Chahal.
For this achievement, Chahal gave the credit to the entire ‘Team BMC’ where – despite losing a little over 100 officials to the virus – civic officials and other Corona warriors are engaged 24×7 in controlling the pandemic for over four months.
Since the first case was detected in Mumbai on March 11 (after the state’s first infectees in Pune on March 9) and the state’s first death notched in Mumbai on March 17, the current Maharashtra COVID-19 tally stands at 2,54,427 cases and fatalities at 10,289, while Mumbai has recorded 84,500+ cases with a death toll of 4,890+.
To support the cause and conduct more tests we also do COVID-19 testing. With the help of the government, we have developed multiple safe & secured sample collection centers all over Mumbai where people can get tested. We request everyone to consult a doctor in case of any symptoms.
