As cases of COVID-19 rise in Thane, the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) has sped up the process to trace those who are positive, and started door-to-door visits for check-ups.
A Thane-based activist has welcomed the move, but alleged that basic care like cleaning the pulse oxymeters is not being taken after every check, and those doing the check-ups are not wearing gloves."
Thane-based environmentalist and activist, Rohit Joshi, has pointed out that the TMC teams doing the door-to-door screenings don't follow basic rules of safety while testing.
According to Joshi, TMC has started screening in Naupada-Kopri area where the number of cases are seeing an increase.
Naupada-Kopri ward has the highest number of cases at 2,249 and the lowest is in Diva ward with 556.
