Mumbai’s civic body, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), has reportedly been taking several measures in order to prevent the instances of coronavirus cases in Mumbai.

According to sources, 995 buildings along with 10,859 floors have been sealed where five or more positive COVID-19 cases have been found. Moreover, there are 90 containment zones across the city. Of these, 3.85 lakh residents in 85,000 households are under restraint.

Among the slums, Kandivali, Andheri East and Byculla have the highest number of containment zones. It has 20, 13 and 13 containment zones respectively. Meanwhile, there are seven containment zones each in Dahisar, Kurla and six in Bhandup.

The civic body of Mumbai has been sealing societies and buildings with five or more COVID-19 cases since the outbreak of the second wave of coronavirus. In addition, the entry of visitors has been barred. Furthermore, residents, too, are not allowed to leave the premises.
