The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation(BMC) has sealed the entire Navjivan Society that has around 40 COVID-19 active cases in 10 days.
The Assistant municipal commissioner of D ward Prashant Gaikwad had stated that the residential complex had recorded around 40 COVID-19 cases in 10 days.
He had further expressed that it was necessary to seal the whole society to curb the spread of infection as sealing of individual buildings was not effective since people were not following the home quarantine protocol. However, only the essential services were allowed to move in and out.
