In a telephonic conversation with Ayushi Kedia Sanjay Devram Bhoir, Corporator Ward No. 8, says The pandemic situation is making people unaware, as due to 3 months lockdown more than half of the society is facing problem financially in running their livelihood.

Therefore many of them had to step out to earn some money for survival. The case is increasing rapidly, and today in his ward more than 250 cases have currently been reported.

The reopening of departmental stores and malls viz: Big Bazzar, D- D- Mart, people started moving out spreading virus.

He also states that it is very important from hygiene point of view, cleanliness needs to be maintained.

In Worli area, the cases are decreasing due to high cleanlines. So he requests BMC to look after this. The increase in cases began after unlock, otherwise the cases was in control. Earlier they had some fear of police personnel who encouraged them to follow the guidelines.

In the end, he says that people should see whether it’s lockdown of unlock because if a person may get affected then they would be responsible and have to suffer. Hence here the role of individual matters.

Thane Corporator Ward No. 9 B Adv. Anita Sunil Gauri says people are receiving inflated electricity bill despite not using much. The government should check this.

Advocate Anita, said every day 5-10 cases are being detected. Also she added the people are fighting with two problems and both may lead to death that is if they step out of their houses then they may get infected and on the other hand if they remain at home then it comes as a matter for survival which is becoming a major challenge. It’s not only poor people but also middle class family are being trapped in this problem.

Thousands of people are jobless and in addition to this also people have not received their wages for last 3 months following the Covid-19 induced lockdown.

Apart from this, the government is not prioritising to curb Electricity bills which are being billed exorbitantly.

According to Thane Corporator Wahida Mustafa Khan, the time is teaching us that alongwith modernization, it’s very important to inculcate the values of Indian culture.

She further said, Slums have now emerged as corona free because of maintainance and proper cleanliness. With the help of BMC slums area of her ward helped in giving a ward boy and a nurse with some cleaning staff to maintain proper sanitization of public washrooms. Despite this due to shortage of beds and ventilators people are facing a big problems.

Since last 15 days in Thane’s Rustoomji plot one corona hospital is being set up with 1000 beds. This way this problem is under relaxation..

Lastly she urged to inculcate our Indian culture. Earlier older people in our houses used to follow a ritual like to first wash your ands and legs then come inside. But nowadays these things aren’t followed by us. We are modernized but this steps will only help in breaking the chain and nobody knows when the vaccine would come hence we should STAY HOME STAY SAFE and wait for the vaccines.

Thane Corporator Ankita Shinde says the beds and ambulance is major challenges in tackling up with the issues of Covid19. She further mentioned today 48 cases have been reported in ward also it the survival of poor people along with middle class family. The government is helping poor section only by giving food and other basic items. But it’s important to consider middle class. If any member in the family won’t work for 3 months, automatically they will face problem in running the kitchen. Livelihood is not only foods but also several other requirements and EMIs. Also it is very difficult as they have to go out for their office work and due to that they get infected.

Lastly, her demand from the government is to increase beds. There so many virus affected patients and there is bound to be shortage of beds. So there is only solution to be at home safe.
