In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, Mumbai’s civic body, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) plans to add around 5,300 beds by setting up three additional jumbo centres in Mumbai.

Moreover, according to the civic body officials, the BMC has identified three locations for the same that includes Kanjurmarg, Malad and Sion. The additional beds are being created in view of the coronavirus cases increasing drastically in the city.
