Looking at the medical infrastructure being stretched to its capacity, the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) is planning to open a new hospital in Bandra. It will comprise 1,000 beds with all the necessary modern facilities. All the arrangements have been made for COVID-19 patients and it is likely to soon become functional. This hospital model is considered to be similar to the one used in Wuhan. With this new medical infrastructure, the burden on existing hospitals is expected to reduce to some extent.
Mumbai is one of the biggest Coronavirus hotspots in India. The cases in the country are rapidly increasing every day. Experts claim that if the virus is not brought into control, Mumbai will soon become like New York, where thousands of people have lost their lives. However, the mortality rate here is very low as compared to NYC as of now. Many quarantine centres and healthcare facilities have been organised in the metropolis.
