In view of the spike in COVID-19 cases, Mumbai’s Andheri and Jogeshwari areas in the K West ward will be getting two more dedicated facilities with 260 beds, 130 of them having oxygen support.

Moreover, the civic body, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has identified two locations, which covers Andheri, Jogeshwari and Vile Parle, to set up the facilities by May first week. Currently, there are over 30 dedicated COVID-19 facilities in the ward, which is daily recording about 600 cases.

According to an article in Indian Express, officials said that a municipal market building and a community centre would be converted to facilities in order to treat the patients suffering from coronavirus. Speaking about the same, Assistant Municipal Commissioner Vishwas Mote said, “We have started the procedure. The facilities are expected to be ready by the first week of May.”

The decision to set up the facilities was taken after BJP MLA from Andheri West, Ameet Satam, wrote to Municipal Commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal seeking a dedicated facility for the ward.
