The slum areas of Mumbai, which were the hotspots in the first wave of Corona, are now corona free. This is big relief news for Mumbaikars. Out of 24 wards of Mumbai, only 2 wards have 3 containment zones. This proves that there are now few corona cases left in the slum area of ​​Mumbai. On the contrary, the number of sealed buildings and floors remains a matter of concern. BMC Additional Commissioner Suresh Kakani said that the figures show that now only a few cases of corona are being reported daily in the slum area of ​​Mumbai. The number of sealed buildings is also under control, but the floors are being sealed, because the entire building is not being sealed if one or two patients are found on the floor.

Those who lives in buildings have to be a little more aware. At present, between 300 and 400 cases are being reported daily in Mumbai. People need to be more careful to bring these figures down in further. Let us inform you that due to the decrease in Corona cases, the recovery rate in Mumbai has reached 97 percent. At the same time, the growth rate has been stalled at 0.05 percent, while the doubling rate is improving daily. The doubling rate of Corona in Mumbai has reached 1434 days. There is news of relief for Mumbaikars amid fears of the third wave of Corona. Out of 24 wards, 22 wards do not have a single containment zone. Only 2 containment zones are left in Govandi and 1 in Kandivali area. 0.31 lakh people lives here.

Talking about the Micro Containment Zone, their number has been reduced to 55 in Mumbai. That is, there are more than 5 corona patients in 55 buildings. Andheri West has the maximum number of 14 micro-containment zones, while its number is 7 in Bhandup. There are 6-6 containment zones in Govandi, Byculla and Grant Road. Out of 24 wards of Mumbai, 13 wards do not have a single micro-containment zone. On an average, 300 to 400 patients are being met daily in Mumbai, while here 1636 floors are sealed due to the corona patients. From this, it can be estimated that out of the total patients received daily, the number of patients found in the buildings is less. 2.18 lakh people live on the sealed floor. The maximum sealed floor is 194 in Borivali area. Andheri West is at number 2, where there are 171 floor seals followed by the number 158 in Kandivali and 131 in Mulund. At the same time, there is not a single floor seal in Bandra East and Kurla. Of the 24 wards in Mumbai, 8 have more than 100 floor seals, while 14 have less than 100.

11-time Maharashtra MLA Ganpatrao Deshmukh dies at 95

India’s second-longest-serving legislator and Peasants & Workers Party (PWP) senior leader Ganpatrao Deshmukh passed away following a brief illness at a private hospital here late on Friday, family sources said.

He was 95 and his last rites will be performed in Sangole, here on Saturday afternoon.

Deshmukh, an epitome of humility and simplicity, had been elected to the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly from the Sangole seat for a staggering 11 times since 1962.

He also lost elections only twice, first in 1972 and then in 1995 – the second time he was vanquished by his own grandson but with a wafer-thin margin of around 190 votes.

In 2012, the Maharashtra Legislature congratulated him warmly for completing a golden jubilee as a MLA.

Deshmukh, served as a minister briefly in 1978 when Sharad Pawar was the chief minister and later in 1999 in the government of the late CM Vilasrao Deshmukh.

In 2019, Deshmukh stunned political circles by deciding to retire from active politics mainly on grounds of his advanced age.

Till date, he remains the second longest-serving legislator in India – after the record of the late Tamil Nadu CM and DMK supremo, M. Karunanidhi.

Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari and Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, and Leader of Opposition Devendra Fadnavis condoled the demise of Deshmukh.

Top leaders of PWP, Shiv Sena, Nationalist Congress Party, Congress, the Left parties, Samajwadi Party, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena and others have expressed grief over the passing of the elder statesman.
