BMC leases vacant buildings in Mumbai to use them as isolation centres
| Tuesday | 31st March, 2020
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Tuesday decided to use vacant buildings in the wake of lockdown such as marriage halls, vacant hotels, hostels, colleges, community centres, gyms, clubs, and exhibition centres to use them as isolation centres so that people can be quarantined if required.
However, people who would be kept at these place are mere suspects as they came in contact with the COVID-19 patients.
The order also said that BMC will arrange food and basic facilities for people living in quarantine.
On Monday, BMC took a U-turn on its order that said that dead bodies of coronavirus patients will only be cremated and no burial will be allowed.
All the dead bodies of COVID-19 patients should be cremated at the nearest crematorium irrespective of religion.
