According to sources, twenty-two people living in a building in Mumbai's Chembur area have been infected with the coronavirus at the same time.

This occurrence reportedly took place in the premises of Sindhi Society due to which there is an atmosphere of anxiety in the housing society. As per reports, there are about 506 people living in Sindhi society. Therefore, the number of people to be infected with the coronavirus is likely to increase further.

In view of the situation, Mumbai’s civic body, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), has completely sealed the building. Moreover, it has forbidden household help to enter the premises to contain the spread of the disease.

On the other hand, the number of sealed buildings and floors has witnessed a 300 per cent rise in a month. On February 26, the number of sealed floors stood at 1,849. However, with the rise in cases of coronavirus, they now stand at 7,475. Moreover, sealed buildings during the period have increased to 578 from 161. In addition, containment zones in slums and chawls, too, have multiplied to 64 from 12.

The state of Maharashtra had reported its first case in March 2020, which was followed by stringent shutdowns and curbs that were being lifted in a staggered manner only over the past few months. Moreover, the local train services for all resumed for the general public recently. Moreover, the civic body had earlier decided it will file first information reports (FIR) against home quarantine violators and then send them to mandatory institutional quarantine, under the Epidemic Diseases Act, 1897.
