Out of all these centers, Mulund alone will be having a capacity of treating 1700 patients. From these 1700, 500 beds will be reserved for patients from the region of Thane Municipal Corporation. – City and Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO) have developed this center.
Whereas, the capacity of the center at Dahisar East is of 900 beds. – Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation Ltd – MMRCL is the organization we can credit for its development. At present, 7208 are vacant beds out of 19913 total number of beds in Mumbai. However, BMC is doing preparations considering the significant rise in cases.
Apart from that, most of the cases are asymptomatic. Therefore, people with mild Corona doesn’t prefer staying in these centers. Instead, they stay at home in isolation. With the state under complete lockdown till 31st July, let’s stay hopeful that we may get a low number of cases.
