Mumbai BJP Corporator, Ward No.30, Leena Patel Deherkar does an outstanding job by testing the oxygen level of people from slums.
Speaking to Hello Mumbai News reporter Nitin Dwivedi, she says amid the lockdown, slums are highly impacted by Covid-19 pandemic.
This is most dangerous location where extra precautions is mandatory. Assembling a team of 20 people we are providing them with PPE kits and santizers to all of them. She also instructed them to monitor the oxygen level of families in slums with a Pulse oximeter.
Those people with less oxygen level, were taken to the nearby hospital immediately and were given oxygen for two hours, apart from vitamin medicines to improve their immune system.
Striding ahead, she said she recommended her association Bharat Vikas Parishad Malad Branch to make arrangements of 109 PPE kits which she distributed in R South Ward. Also she provided 70 Face shields in R South Ward for the junior engineers working on roads for BMC.
She also served the Charkop Police station, Kandivli Police Station and Kandivali RTO by distributing 500 washable masks to each one of them.
She also says that Ngo’s have been of great relief in assisting her with handling such crisis where 250 sanitary pads and bathing soaps donated by NGos and Rotary Club of Kandivli, have been distributed amongst young ladies and teenage girls. she is first women who distributed sanitary pads and soap
Leena patel has also carried out excellent job by helping the extremely needy people such as labourers who work on roads, and workers who clean the sewage system, by distributing 2000 food packets amongst them.
By undertaking such noble services for a deserving cause amid this coronavirus outbreak she not only feels happy with the working style of BMC, but she says “BMC has not been very much efficient in handling patients who tested positive for Coronavirus. Also, they are very lenient with the patients and are not very strict”. she suggests that patients should not be set free from quarantine until he/she have been tested negative for the virus.
