The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) continues to receive applause for its efforts to control the second wave of coronavirus in Mumbai city.

On Monday, May 10, NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant and Biocon founder Kiran Mazumdar Shaw lauded the BMC for its management of the second COVID-19 wave. Earlier last week, the Supreme Court had also praised the civic body’s Mumbai model of COVID-19 mitigation.

Taking it to Twitter, Kant wrote: “Centralized bed allotment, anticipating oxygen storage facilities, common allotment of beds even in pvt hospitals, dashboards for monitoring, war rooms for patient follow up. Inspirational Mumbai model of Covid Mngmnt. Congrats @mybmc commissioner Chahal & his Gr8 team.”

Meanwhile, Kiran Mazumdar Shaw tweeted, “I just studied the Maharashtra and BMC model of decentralised Covid management n super impressed with its uniquely thought out processes Kudos to @OfficeofUT n @mybmc n its dynamic Iqbal Singh Chahal. The whole country should follow these COVID beating methods.”

Maharashtra has been the worst-affected state during the second wave of COVID-19 infections. Though some of its cities, including Mumbai, have seen consistent improvement, the situation in many parts of the state remains of concern.

A few days ago, Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on the COVID-19 situation in the state and applauded efforts taken by Maharashtra government in tackling the second wave.
