Kurla, Chembur, Chunabhatti to remain under total shutdown till May 3

In a bid to curb the spread of coronavirus, Shiv Sena MLA from Kurla Constituency, Mangesh Kudalkar has announced that the Kurla, Chembur, and Chunabhatti area will remain under total shut down till May 3. Kudalkar added that people will only be able to get out to buy medicines, milk and in case of medical emergencies.

Mumbai is the worst-affected city by the coronavirus pandemic across not only Maharashtra but the country. Every day, new cases have been emerging in the city which has become a concern for the authorities. As of now, the authorities are attempting to break the chain by isolating COVID-19 positive patients and asking people to stay at home and only venture out to buy essential items.

However, despite taking all the necessary measures, there are some areas in the city which pose a higher risk due to the contagion which include the places where COVID-19 patients or their contacts live. These areas have been declared as 'containment zones' by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).

The BMC has been releasing containment zones from its list after no new cases are registered in the span of 14 days. However, in order to ensure that the contagion does not adversely affect the Kurla, Chembur, Chunabhatti region, Kudalkar has decided to introduce total shutdown. 

Kudalkar said that to overcome the pandemic, 100 per cent lockdown is a must. He added that people can order groceries via phones and those will be delivered at their doorstep. Alongside, the vegetable vendors have been permitted to sell groceries in society premises.

Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) recorded 369 new cases of COIVD-19 or coronavirus Monday, taking the city's tally of COVID-19 patients to 5,776. The city also recorded 15 fatalities on April 27, Monday which is the second-highest number of COVID-19 deaths in a single day.
