#Mumbai #MumbaiFightsCovid19
2/2: 'Mission Dharavi' by @mybmc was implemented across the slum. Strong #publichealth measures - Screening by fever camps, private clinic were effective tool to screen 3.6 lakh people out of 8 lakhs. Same strategy could have been applied to entire #Mumbai to reduce no. of cases.
BMC rolled out massive dosages of #Hydroxychloroquine across the slum as prophylaxis to prevent the infection. This might also contributed in early halt of #COVID19 in Dharavi. @MsAnaMcCarthy take a look at this thread. Success story from Asia's largest slum in Mumbai.

Dharavi has around 179 covid cases with 12 deaths. It spans across 2.1km with around 1mn people living in just that stretch. This is going to get worse, how does one even manage to do social distancing + economic status is already a challenge for them. #Mumbai #coronavirus
With regards to hygienic, the slum has 225 public toilets and most likely over 2000 people are sharing a single toilet daily. And they don’t even have access to reliable water to sanitise themselves. #Dharavi #Mumbai #coronavirus…
Maximum people rely on daily wages and are now living on NGO handouts & donations. This is a long battle for people living in #Dharavi and is going to impact a lot of markets like leather, bags, shoes, hand embroidery etc… #coronavirus #mumbai

They said they’re originally from #Sindh &for generations have only known pottery making!It would interest you to know that this #creative form existed across early #civilisations globally.This particular group of potters can be linked to the #IndusValleyCivilisation &before
