Explain that the number of COVID-19 positives in Maharashtra has exceeded 300 and the finding of a corona patient in Dharavi is a concern.
There are thousands of slums in the area of Dharavi where corona positive patients have been found. In such a situation, there is a situation of panic among the authorities in view of the danger of spreading the infection in this area. Authorities are now making every effort to prevent the risk of infection after the corona patient is found among the slum population.

More than 5 thousand people in isolation
Let me tell you that in Mumbai, Maharashtra, dozens of corona cases have been reported earlier. More than 5000 people who come in contact with corona patients in other parts of the state including Mumbai have been kept in isolation wards. More than 4 thousand health workers have been deployed by the government to monitor all these people.
Corona spreading in dense settlements
The virus is spreading rapidly in Mumbai’s slums and chawls and it is the administration’s biggest challenge to control it here. To prevent this virus, social distancing is the most important and it is not possible in these dense settlements. So far eight people have become corona positive in the settlements.
Many families live in small rooms
Social distance is not possible in these slums and chawls. In slums, tin sheets are kept together in most homes and people living here use community toilets. In chawls, up to six people normally live in 8X10 rooms. Preventing disease among the people here has been a big challenge for the Health Department since the beginning.
