As per reports, the COVID-19 jumbo centre at Mulund’s Richardson and Cruddas plot is allegedly not discharging asymptomatic patients even after ten days of admission.

The civic body, as a result, has issued a notice to Ms Aasha Cancer Trust and Research Centre further threatening to terminate its contract for not following the rules issued by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). Moreover, the trust has been asked to get a written opinion from the centre’s dean, along with the bills for every patient who is not being discharged after the 10th day.

Meanwhile, earlier on Saturday, BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis wrote to Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray urging him to focus on increasing testing for the coronavirus across the state. He further added that there was an attempt to show an artificial decrease in the number of novel coronavirus patients. To stress his point, the Leader of Opposition in the Maharashtra Assembly highlighted that only 75,296 tests were conducted daily in the state between October 1-15 as compared to 91,743 daily tests in the September 16-30 period.

Furthermore, he stated that the state accounts for 41 per cent and 22 per cent of the total coronavirus patients and fatalities in India respectively adding that this makes the resumption of economic activities in Maharashtra a risky affair.
