The city of Mumbai has been impacted in a major way by this second wave of coronavirus. The daily number of cases are way past the peak that the maximum city had experienced in August/September 2020. 

To contain the spread, BMC is resorting to various measures including sealing building and making mini containment zones. As per current norms, if one or more COVID-19 patients are found in a building, then the entire floor is sealed. While if more than five patients are found infected, the building is sealed by the Municipal Corporation.

However, if the building is small, the Municipal Corporation has no problem in sealing the entire building. But when there are many buildings or wings in the complex, it becomes a problem for other residents.

To avoid any inconvenience to other residents, the Municipal Corporation has adopted a policy of sealing the floors or the entire wing of the building instead of completely sealing the building. Besides, the authority to seal the building has been given to local authorities.

Currently, 32.75 lakh people are in-home quarantine and 29,399 people are in institutional quarantine. Meanwhile, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has sealed more than 700 buildings as of April 5, 2021.

Here is a list of buildings that have been sealed in Ward S that comprises of Bhandup, Kanjurmarg and Powai


Apart from this, BMC has also been appealing to follow all social distancing norms and to wear a mask in public places. To avoid crowding, stricter regulations have been announced by CM Uddhav Thackeray in his address on April 13. These lockdown like restriction will come into effect from April 14, 8 PM.
