ULHASNAGAR: Looking at the rising number of Covid-19 patients in Ulhasnagar and non-availability of beds for them, the Maharashtra Navanirman Sena ()MNS party has demanded complete lockdown in the city for next 10 days.
The city on Sunday reported 101 new patients in the last 24 hours taking total numbers of patients to 1,629, including 42 deaths so far.
In a letter written by MNS city president Bandu Deshmukh to commissioner of Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation as well as state health minister Rajesh Tope, in which he said that since cases are rising daily and patients are complaining of not getting beds in the hospitals, urgent lockdown is required in the city.
Deshmukh said, “It would be difficult for the administration to handle patients considering the limited medical facilities. By implementing lockdown the civic body can set up more temporary hospitals and civic body can track all high-risk contacts of Covid-19 patients and can help break the virus chain”.
Other citizens from city too are demanding lockdown in the city. A trader Rishi Kamria said, “The way patients are dying in absence of beds in hospitals, there is need for urgent lockdown in the city so that health facilities can be improved”.
