With a quick increase of Coronavirus cases in Andheri, it has become the region with the highest number of COVID19 cases in Mumbai. If we consider Mumbai as the epicenter of Corona in India. Andheri is the epicenter of Coronavirus in Mumbai. On average, daily there are 125 cases from Andheri.
Is Vande Bharat Mission a Reason for a huge number of cases in Andheri?
“Most foreign travelers are quarantined in hotels in K east east ward of Andheri. The Seven Hills hospital is also in this ward. If a suspected Covid patient is admitted, the address shown by default is K east ward regardless of where the patient lives. Those figures are added to the ward list.”
It is noteworthy that almost 25% of the people brought back through Vande Bharat Mission, stay in Andheri. They spend 7 days in quarantine in hotels of Andheri. Their test is done multiple times here. In case their result comes positive, the test of hotel staff is also carried out. Perhaps, this is the main reason for increasing cases in Andheri.
However, the positive news from Andheri is the death rate is less in the ward because of the presence of Seven Hills Hospital and Jogeshwari trauma care in the ward.
