2020-03-31These migrants did not walk back home. They stayed and are now running out of food - Scroll.in
These migrants did not walk back home. They stayed and are now running out of food Falling through the cracks of the public distribution system, they fear stepping out, even for food. Vijayta Lalwani & Ipsita Chakravarty 14 hours ago A policeman (not seen in the picture) in Ghaziabad on March 28 distributes a packet of bread to the migrant workers waiting for buses along a highway as they try go return to their villages, during a 21-day nationwide lockdown to limit the spreading of coronavirus. | Anushree Fadnavis/Reuters 14 hours ago Vijayta Lalwani & Ipsita Chakravarty Share Tweet Email Reddit Print Comments Share Tweet Email Reddit Print Comments As Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a national lockdown on March 24 and asked Indians to stay home in order to contain the spread of the coronavirus, it triggered an exodus of migrant workers from the cities. With all work halted and public transport shut, they set off on desperate journeys, aiming to walk back to homes hundreds of kilometres away. But Gaurav Kumar was not one of them.He stayed back in Badmalik village in Haryana’s Sonepat area, far from his home in Bihar’s Vaishali district. The 26-year-old works as a painter and usually earns Rs 10,000 a month. He stays in a house with about 25 other workers from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. As work had dried up, their landlord agreed to exempt them from paying rent, which is Rs 2,500 per person. But that did not solve the problem of food. Kumar said he has barely 2 kg of wheat flour and rice left, the gas in his small cylinder is about to run out and he has about Rs 900 left as savings. “The problem is that most of us sent money back home during Holi,” he said. “We did not know what was going to happen.”For three days, Sankar Mahto and 42 other colleagues from Godda district in Jharkhand had lived on salt and water. The group of daily wagers stranded in Mumbai’s Ulhasnagar were not able to make it back home amid the nationwide lockdown.Their rations have run out and so have their savings. “We do not even have one rupee,” said Mahto, who earned Rs 500 per day before work stopped two weeks ago. “For three days I have been making so many calls. I have called on 100. They keep saying they will help us. Will we get help after we die?”In Andhra Pradesh’s Guntur district, 24-year-old Anirudha Pradhan has assessed that he only has enough food to last a day for him and his 12 colleagues who came from Jamshedpur and Chaibasa district in Jharkhand. The gas in his cylinder will run out in the next two days as well. The group has calculated that all their savings put together amount to just about Rs 130. “There will be no food from tomorrow,” he said.“No one has a single penny,” said Pradhan.Daily breadSince the nationwide lockdown was announced on March 24, both the Centre and states have announced measures to ensure food reaches thousands across the country. The Centre, to begin with, said it would provide extra subsidised food grain over the next three months to over 80 crore people covered by the National Food Security Act.States announced their own measures. Punjab said it would deliver 10 lakh packets of dry rations to daily wage labourers and those working in the unorganised sector. These would be distributed at slums and other places where such workers were gathered.Andhra Pradesh promised to deliver free food to ration card holders in the state. Kerala announced the home delivery of food kits to the poor, even to those who fell outside the public distribution system. Families above the poverty line will get 15 kgs of rice for free, said Mridul Eapen, a member of the state’s planning board.“The state has also started serving cooked meals at 1,059 community kitchens that cover six corporations, 87 municipalities, 125 urban areas and 831 panchayats,” she said. “From these, food was home delivered to 31,821 people.”The Uttar Pradesh government will reportedly rope in restaurants and religious institutions like temples and gurudwaras for community kitchens that distribute food to daily wage labourers. The Delhi government has launched hunger relief centres at schools and night shelters, which could feed four lakh people, it claimed. Now, Maharashtra has said it will create 163 centres to provide food and water for migrant workers.But these schemes may not actually reach migrant workers, the most precarious of Indian citizens. For many of the measures that depend on the public distribution system or other social security schemes, they fall through the cracks.No informationBefore the lockdown, the grocery store next to Gaurav Kumar’s house in the Sonepat village would allow him to buy on credit. But that has stopped. “They want everything in cash,” he said. “No one is ready to give me even Rs 50. Why is the chief minister not doing anything?”Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Khattar had announced that his government would provide below poverty line families with free rations for the month of April. But Kumar’s ration card is registered in Kolkata, where he had spent a few years as a child. Even if there was a ration shop nearby, he thinks, he would not be able to get food.Khattar also announced that daily wagers could register with the deputy commissioner of their district on a portal that would be launched on March 27. Those found eligible and with bank accounts would be provided assistance of Rs 1,000 a week. Kumar has no bank account. Besides, he has not even heard of Khattar’s offer.Even if he did have money, stepping out of the house is fraught with danger. These days, the neighbourhood grocery stays open for just four hours, from 7 am to 11 am, Kumar said, drawing large crowds from the neighbourhood. That is if he can make it to the grocery shop in the first place. “If we go out then the police beat us,” he said. “They do not even ask us why we are out. It is not as if we are out to roam around. We all need things.”Gaurav Kumar with 25 others in Haryana. (Photo credit: Gaurav Kumar)Slipping through the cracksMigrants like Guarav Kumar are registered as ration beneficiaries in faraway home states. A pilot project of the “One Nation, One Card” scheme was launched across 12 states in January this year. It was to enable public distribution system beneficiaries to get their share of rations in any of these states. But to avail of benefits under this scheme, Eapen of the Andhra Pradesh planning board said, migrant workers would have to obtain a collector’s letter, an affidavit declaring that they were not procuring rations from elsewhere and a copy of their Aadhaar card.At a time when the government wants people to stay at home, it is not clear how they are to reach community kitchens or relief centres, acquire collectors’ letters and affidavits. In state after state, migrant workers spoke of being met with police violence as they tried to go out to get food.Which means that for days now, countless migrant workers, those who heeded government instructions and did not try to rush back to homes in other states, have gone hungry.Living on salt and waterSankar Mahto, who is stranded in Mumbai’s Ulhasnagar area is the only earning member of his family, which consists of his parents and six siblings. In Ulhasnagar, he lives in a room that he shares with 10 others. None of them dare to venture out. “The police beat up one of us when he went out to buy vegetables on March 27,” he said.On March 29, Mahto got a call from a stranger who identified himself as Rupesh Srivastava. He said the group could collect rations the next day from a location nearly 10 kilometres away. A few members of the group walked the distance and managed to get back rice, wheat, pulses, salt and oil on a tempo. It would last them about 10 days, Mahto said. “We will have to find another solution after that,” he said.44 workers of Pathargama stuck in Maharashtra's Ullhasnagar without ration and money. Police beats them if they try to go out to buy ration. They need immediate help and ration. @HemantSorenJMM @jharkhand181 @DipikaPS @abhishekangad @AmbikaPanditTOI @kunalpurohit @SharmeenMIRROR pic.twitter.com/IVY0MiKS63— Jharkhand Janadhikar Mahasabha (@JharkhandJanad1) March 29, 2020 ‘No food from tomorrow’Anirudha Pradhan, who earns Rs 450 per day working as a plumber, came to Andhra Pradesh’s Guntur district barely 20 days back. In Jamshedpur, he worked in a Tata Motors factory fitting battery parts for automobiles. The work paid him around Rs 190 a day but the slowdown in the automobile industry had set in by last year. By December 2019, work had come to a complete halt, he said. “We were told to sit at home because of the slowdown and some of my friends came to Guntur so I came as well,” Pradhan said. In Guntur, Pradhan pays Rs 1,000 in rent for a room he shares with the 12 others. The landlord will come to collect his dues in a few days. Pradhan and his group do not know how they will pay. “If we knew this would happen then we would have run away home,” said Pradhan, whose family, including his nine-month-old baby, lives in Jamshedpur. From his room, he said, the streets looked deserted. “We cannot even see a cycle, nothing except police,” he said. The grocery shop next to his rooms is open for an hour every morning, he said. Even if the group wanted to buy groceries, stepping out would be a risky task. “We are very scared of the police,” he said. “They speak in Telugu here so it is difficult for us to understand them.”13 workers of Chakradharpur are stuck in Gunthur, AP. They have some rice left that will get over in the evening. Do not have money. Need immediate help.

With kitchens opening in schools, it has taken some of the pressure off, according to her.But not everybody has found relief. Shivani Valmiki, from Bulandshahr in Uttar Pradesh, has lived in Delhi for 20 years. While she works as a cleaner, her husband is a daily wage construction worker. The couple and their four children live along the Kapashera border in South West Delhi. The family has been out of money and rations since last week. They depend on infrequent meals offered by neighbours. Valmiki said that she did not have a ration card and there was no nearby night shelter where the family could get cooked meals twice a day. “The children are always asking me to cook something but there is no money at all,” she said. The family decided to stay put in Delhi instead of travelling to their home in Bulandshahr in Uttar Pradesh. “We have to die anyway,” Valmiki said. Support our journalism by subscribing to Scroll+.

People who are circulating messages without checking their efficacy are landing in trouble. A man from south Mumbai was arrested for circulating a rumour on Sunday while cases have been filed against others in the city and Ulhasnagar. Dongri resident Sohail Salim Punjab (36) was arrested late on Sunday for allegedly posting fake messages on a Whatsapp group, claiming that the the military had been called in to maintain law and order in parts of south Mumbai as the situation had gone out of police control. A case was registered against Punjab at JJ Marg police station, said deputy commissioner of police Sangramsingh Nishandar. The message titled ‘Red Alert’ said: ‘Mumbai’s Null Bazar, Bhendi Bazar, Dongari,Madanpura, Kala Pani, Sat Rasta area is uncontrollable by police, Hence Military has been called.’ The fake message went on to add that the army would use lathis and fire rubber bullets.

2020-03-30IIT develops apps to monitor corona cases - Mumbai Mirror
IIT develops apps to monitor corona casesYou are in an offline modeIIT develops apps to monitor corona casesBy Rahi Gaikwad and Alka DhupkarRahi Gaikwad and Alka Dhupkar, Mumbai Mirror | Updated: Mar 30, 2020, 09:33 ISTPrint this articleReduce font sizeIncrease font sizeShareIIT-Bombay has sent proposals to the BMC for possible use of its appsNavi Mumbai, Thane corporations also take recourse to apps to monitor patients. The fight against the coronavirus is set to get a shot in the arm with technology coming to the aid of state agencies. IIT-Bombay has developed two Covid-related apps and has sent proposals to the BMC for their possible use. Similarly, corporations in Navi Mumbai and Thane have also taken recourse to apps in order to monitor patients. An IIT team comprising Prof Ganesh Ramakrishnan from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) and Prof Manjesh Hanawal from the Department of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research (IEOR), along with some professionals and experienced alumni, have developed the ‘CORONTINE’ application to track potential/suspected (asymptomatic) carriers. The app generates alerts via SMS, email and other channels if users move out of the quarantine zone. “The platform has different features that can be customised. It also allows for organising zones into regions,” the institute said in a statement. Another app called ‘SAFE’, developed by a team comprising Prof Bhaskaran Raman and Prof Kameswari Chebrolu from the CSE department, can check the adherence to quarantine of a large group of people and also track the trajectory of any person moving out of it. “SAFE works like class attendance. You can track it every five minutes. Say you have a thousand people in a building. You can track if someone leaves the place. It can be done for a thousand or 10,000 people. It’s a scalable model. CORONTINE goes a step further and can track if the person is meeting other people. If the person is positive, they might be carrying the infection and infecting other people. We can find out, other hot spots, which areas the person visited, whom did they meet. It needs GPS monitoring,” Milind Atrey, dean, R&D, IIT-Bombay, told Mirror. Atrey said while the proposal for both the apps have been sent to the civic body, researchers are waiting to hear from the officials. “We need them to come and take a look at the software. If they need any customisation, that can be done in a day or two and the professors are on campus. We need their inputs. The professors can train them,” he said. Navi Mumbai and Panvel Municipal Corporation have also started using two apps called ‘COVIGUARD’ and ‘COVICARE' to monitor people quarantined at homes and to fill survey details. Thane Municipal Corporation, Kalyan, Dombivali, Bhiwandi and Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporations are also going to use these apps in the coming days, said Vikas Aute, a developer who is offering this service to NMMC free of cost. NMMC commissioner Annasaheb Misal told Mumbai Mirror: "We have more than 500 people who have been asked to stay home because of their travel history. If these people have any doubts they can reach out to us within no time through this app. We have also provided a few links here for them. We don’t just monitor the home quarantine people… We also take care of them by providing necessary information and support.” Health officers are visiting different areas and preparing reports and keeping tabs on people quarantined at home. “Housing societies will be asked to feed some information in each column, which will save lot of time. This app will also help to keep social distancing for health workers who are working on field to get the statistics,” Aute added. “The information collected by the corporation staff is going to be confidential and patients can get interactive facilities.” RELATED NEWSSpiceJet pilot tests positive for COVID-19Mar 29, 2020Bengaluru lab calls innovators to help contain COVID-19 virusMar 29, 2020US surpasses China with most COVID-19 cases worldwideMar 27, 2020 Dell Precision - Productivity for professional creatorsDell IndiaLearn while you Quarantine!Meluha Educational SocietyZomato employee destroys his motorcycle after this happens!Deepsy SiteAiims nurse quits job with awesome resignation notice!DigiBloggingYou won’t believe how this Mumbai chai wala changed his lifeGrapeOdd LifeIndian lady earns Rs.12500/day from home online!Career Times SOBHA ROYAL PAVILION-2,3,4 BHK Rajasthan Palace themed homesSOBHA LIMITEDIndian man pushes his birthday BMW into river in protest!NeweraBlogReady to move apartments 1.50cr onwards @ Yelahanka main rdVajram groupHelp these families survive the virus crisis.Donatekart.comEasily protect your business name and brandIndiaFilingsThis Mumbai dabbawala changed his life while taking a break!Bloglittle

Kunal Chhabhria’s popularity races ahead as he continues to tickle peoples’ funny bone ! By Geetanjali Gupta Mar 30 2020 12:37 PM Entertainment In an absolute reversal of his original professional career choice of working at an advertising agency to becoming a well-known name today in creating content for the audience that are relatable for them and they recall themselves while watching them. This process is an evidence of his career’s meteoric rise. As he recounts his career growth, Kunal feels nostalgic while tracing the path, he started to making short films and videos during his college time. Going forward, he joined a local advertising agency while still studying in college, where he was instrumental in handling as well as getting profitable client accounts and generating ROI for them. It was more ironical than strange that despite of having a stable career and steady growth at work, he was still not professionally happy and content. It was as if he was craving for something else to plan and execute in his career. He went onto joining one of the most premiere network of the country, known as Star Network, where he was in the Hotstar team, which is now acquired by Disney.  It was only a short while into his career and a tragedy struck when he got ill, his sickness left him bed ridden. His whole world turned topsy-turvy with him as he was the only bread winner in the family and he was jobless at this instance. He also had to leave his job at Hotstar as travelling all the way from his town was becoming a tough task for him. He recalls the days at the hospital where he had nothing to do but wait for his speedy recovery. During this course of time, when the internet was on a turning point of its boom, he started watching funny and relatable videos online in order to find an escape from his boredom. This turned out as if providence guided him towards uploading his first ever video, which was loved by the audiences and reached to a lot of people. The video got shared really well on Facebook and various other social media platforms at that time. This proved to be his encouragement to make more content and put it online and have a constant vision of entertaining people. He gives a huge credit to his mother Bharati Chhabhria and his wife Manvita Chhabhria who have always been strong pillars of support to him and have encouraged him to do what he loves at every stage of his life.  After the recovery, he went onto Adoing the task, from where it all started. He joined a local advertising agency, yet again. During this phase, he also happened to create a full - fledged YouTube channel called What The Fukrey (WTF). WTF is a channel with over 1.6M+ subscribers today, it is a hub for all things entertainment & comedy.  Going forward, in the process of continuously making content, he started working with Ashish Chanchlani, as they both are from the same city, Ulhasnagar. They teamed up and started making longer form of comedy sketches, unlike short comedy vines which were of a minute max.  Taking Ashish’s growth into consideration, brands started coming to look for advertising and promotional solutions. Kunal was and is the one who is responsible for planning, pitching and successfully closing a lot of brand collaborations for Ashish Chanchlani Vines.  After a couple of years, he realised that a large number of creators are making an amazing move into this content industry and it would be great to start an in-house influencer marketing solutions company, which he proud names as The Brandgasm Media.  Kunal’s professional journey has amply displayed how through the process of self-discovery, he himself discovered his true calling of being a creator.

In a letter addressed to the district collector and the Thane police, the secretary of the housing society stated that one of the tenants of the building had travelled to Pune. The society said that the tenant tested positive in Pune and was being treated there. The letter also sought advice from the authorities as to what the resident's further action should be. They stated that all the residents had been in self isolation in their homes since the lockdown and had not had any interaction with the tenant and his family during their three day stay in the city. The residents also requested the corporation to take the necessary steps to sanitize the building and disinfect the tenant's flat. They added the information was brought to their notice by the owner of the flat who had let out the place to the family. Senior Police Inspector Jitendra Rathod confirmed receipt of the letter and stated that the residents of the building were currently isolated in their flats until further instruction. He stated that there were no plans to seal the building as there was no contact with any of the residents during their three day stay. The Thane Municipal Corporation has also sanitised the flat and surrounding area, he told Mirror. The housing society also informed the police about the resident’s travel details, stating that he had first travelled to Pune on March 7 and spent three days there to celebrate Holi on March 10.

IT (information technology) division of the EPFO has devised a system of auto settlement of claims through our centralized server in respect of all such members whose KYC (know your customer) data is fully updated and compliant."It is going to be a paradigm shift in claim settlements that will be possible to settle within 3 days. This facility will stop manual intervention. The EPF claims will be settled fully online," an official said.

AP Centre asks states, UTs to seal bordersThe Centre on Sunday asked state governments and Union Territory administrations to effectively seal state and district borders to stop the movement of migrant workers, who will be put in 14-days quarantine at destinations for violating the lockdown.During a video conference with chief secretaries and DGPs, cabinet secretary Rajiv Gauba and Union home secretary Ajay Bhalla asked them to ensure that there is no movement of people across cities or on highways as the lockdown continues."There has been movement of migrant workers in some parts of the country. Directions were issued that district and state borders should be effectively sealed," an official statement said.States were directed to ensure that there is no movement of people across cities or on highways and there should be strict implementation of the lockdown.Only the movement of goods should be allowed.Those who have violated the lockdown and travelled during the period of lockdown will be subject to minimum 14 days of quarantine in government quarantine facilities, the statement said.Later, at a press conference, joint secretary in the ministry of home affairs Punya Salila Srivastava said those migrant workers who have violated the lockdown and travelled during the curb will be put in 14 days quarantine at their destinations."We have asked the States to make arrangements for shelters so that the migrant workers who have violated the lockdown and travelled could be put in quarantined for 14 days at their destinations. Health workers are being prepared for this," Srivastava said at a press conference in New Delhi.In an order issued on Sunday, the home ministry said, "The migrant people, who have moved out to reach their home states/ home towns, must be kept in the nearest shelter by the respective State/Union Territory government quarantine facilities after proper screening for a minimum period of 14 days as per standard health protocol".In the official statement, the government said district magistrates and SPs should be made personally responsible for the implementation of these directions.The two top central government officials told the chiefs of police and civil administrations of all states to make adequate arrangements for food and shelter for the poor and needy people, including migrant labourers, be made at the place of their work.The cabinet secretary and home ministry officials are in constant touch with the state chief secretaries and the DGPs.Video conferences were held by the cabinet secretary and the home secretary on Saturday evening as well as Sunday morning with the chief secretaries and the DGPs."It was noted that, by and large, there has been effective implementation of the lockdown guidelines across all States and UTs. Essential supplies have also been maintained. Situation is being monitored round the clock and necessary measures are being taken as required," the statement said.The central government had on Saturday issued orders for the use of State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) funds for this purpose.Sufficient funds are available with states in this head, it said.States have been also told to ensure timely payment of wages to labourers at their place of work during the period of lockdown without any cut.House rent should not be demanded from the labourers for this period. Action should be taken against those who are asking labourers or students to vacate the premises, the statement said.Detailed instructions on monitoring of such persons during quarantine have been issued to the states.It was impressed upon all the states that three weeks of strict enforcement is essential to contain the spread of coronavirus. This is in the interest of everyone, the statement said.A large number of migrant workers have left their work places in different parts of the country in last few days and walking down to their native places, hundreds of kilometres away facing hardships on the way.The migrant workers have no option but to walk as there is no transport available after the announcement of the nationwide lockdown by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday in a bid to combat the coronavirus outbreak.Seeing their plight, some state governments have made arrangements for their transport, accommodation and food of late. Migrants walk towards their native places amid the lockdown File picutre PM seeks forgiveness for tough decisionsPrime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday sought the nation's forgiveness for imposing a monumental lockdown on the country, saying it was a question of life and death and expressed confidence that "we will definitely win the battle" against the coronavirus menace that has claimed 25 lives in India so far.In his monthly Mann ki Baat radio address to the nation, Modi also praised the front-line workers in the fight against the virus as well as countless workers in the essential services who are ensuring the country doesn't come to a complete standstill in the 21-day lockdown announced on March 24."I seek forgiveness ... I strongly feel, you will forgive me. When I see my poor brothers and sisters, then I definitely feel that they would say what kind of Prime Minister is this who has put us in this trouble. I specially seek their forgiveness. You had to undergo problems. I understand but there is no other way out to fight the coronavirus for a country with a population of 130 crore," he said. "But this is a battle for life and death."According to the Health Ministry Update released an hour before Modi's address, India recorded a total of 979 cases and 25 deaths so far.The Prime Minister said looking at what the world is going through, this (lockdown) was the "only way left.""After all, the safety of you and your families has to be ensured. Once again, I apologise for any inconvenience, any hardship caused to you," he said.To drive home his point, Modi referred to an ancient Indian adage that means an illness and its scourge should be nipped in the bud because when it becomes incurable with passage of time its treatment is very difficult.He also described as "unfortunate" incidents where some of those suspected coronavirus carriers under home quarantine are being ill-treated or ostracised by others."I am greatly pained to learn of these instances. This is very unfortunate. We need to understand that in the current circumstances, we need to ensure social distance, not human or emotional distance. These people are not criminals, " he said.He pointed out that these people are merely suspected to be infected with the virus."These people have isolated and quarantined themselves to protect other people from getting infected," he said."Coronavirus is bent on killing people therefore entire humanity must unite and resolve to eliminate it," he said in the address that lasted more than 30 minutes and featured his interaction with two former coronavirus patients and two doctors.He said while talks on a variety of issues in the programme, this month, he will restrict himself to coronavirus as it would not be appropriate to talk of other things.The lockdown is a means to protect yourself, he said. You have to protect yourself and your family. For the next many days, you have to continue displaying this patience; abide by the 'Lakshman Rekha Prime Minister Narendra Modi "You have to protect yourself and your family. For the next many days, you have to continue displaying this patience; abide by the 'Lakshman Rekha'," he stressed.In a stern warning to those not following rules during the 21-day lockdown, the Prime Minister said no one wants to overstep the law and break rules wilfully."But there are some who are doing so, since they are not trying to understand the gravity of the matter. To them I will say that if they don't comply with the lockdown rule, it will be difficult to save ourselves from the scourge of coronavirus," he said. Community spread hasn't begun: Maharashtra Deputy CM Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar on Sunday said there were no cases of community transmission of the novel coronavirus in the state and all COVID-19 patients here were those who had come from abroad or the ones who had come in contact with infected persons.In a series of tweets, Pawar said the the third stage of the outbreak, that is community transmission, had not yet been reached, and asked people to ensure it stayed that way by not venturing out onto the streets.The state is under a 21-day lockdown from Wednesday to stop the spread of the coronavirus."The increased number of COVID-19 cases in the state are from people who are in close contact with the people returning from abroad," he tweeted.Some people got infected during their international tours and carried it here and their relatives, mostly family members, contracted the coronavirus infection, he said."We are still not in the third stage, also known as community transmission phase. People should make a resolution that they would not venture out on streets," he said, and called it the only way to break the spread cycle.

Migrant workers hit streets in Kerala seeking transportation to native placesSeeking transportation to travel to their native places, hundreds of migrant workers on Sunday hit the streets near Changanassery violating the 21-day lockdown announced by the government to prevent spread of novel coronavirus.Soon after the incident was reported from Payippad village, a shocked Kerala government quickly stepped in to defuse the tension by deploying police force and sending Kottayam district authorities to pacify the agitating migrant workers, who are called guest labourers in the state.The Kottayam district Collector and Superintendent of Police held talks with the agitating migrant workers on the streets of Payippad village town and managed to send them back to their camps. Maharashtra cases touch 186With three more persons testing positive for coronavirus in Maharashtra, the number of such patients in the state has gone up to 196, state Health Minister Rajesh Tope said on Sunday.However, he did not specify the places where these three new patients belong to."Three more people have tested positive, taking the tally to 196. However, 34 people have been discharged so far in the state. So the number of active COVID-19 patients in the state is 155," Tope said.All the cured and discharged people have been advised to observe mandatory home quarantine for 14 days from the date of discharge, he said."The current count of COVID-19 patients in the state is 196- Mumbai and Thane Region 107, Pune 37, Nagpur 13, Ahmednagar 3, Ratnagiri 1, Aurangabad 1, Yavatmal 3, Miraj 25, Satara 2, Sindhudurg 1, Kolhapur 1, Jalgaon 1 and Buldhana 1," he said."Of the total number of discharged people, 14 are from Mumbai, 15 from Pune, one each from Nagpur and Aurangabad and three from Yavatmal, taking the total to 34. There are only 155 active cases in reality," he said. Central Hospital of South Eastern Railway ser.indianrailways.gov.in Railway extends its medical services to all central govt employeesIndian Railways has extended services of all its hospitals and dispensaries to all central government employees and their families in view of the spread of coronavirus, a Railway Board order said.The services include those of all 128 hospitals and 586 dispensaries of the Indian Railways all over the country."In view of the COVID-19 outbreak, the Ministry of Railways has decided that the services of railway hospitals and health units across the country would be available for use by all Central government employees, on showing their identity cards, at railway hospitals and health Units," the order stated.As of now the facilities could be availed by present and retired railway staffers only. Maharashtra CM assures help, asks migrant workers not to leaveMaharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday assured that his government will take care of all migrant labourers and provide them basic necessities like food and water.The 'Shiv Bhojan' scheme offering meal at Rs 10 will now be available at Rs 5 from April 1, he said in a webcast.Thackeray said the state has already set up 163 centres across the state to provide food and water to the migrant labourers."The state will protect them and provide food, but they should not leave their place. I understand that they are anxious but they should not leave. They should avoid increasing the risk of infection, he said.In view of the nationwide lockdown to contain the spread of coronavirus, several migrant labourers are left with no work and hence, they are leaving the state to return to their native places.

Apart from this, 513 people who arrived from foreign countries including 125 people who arrived from Saudi Arabia and 99 from Oman have been quarantined."Symptoms of coronavirus have not been detected in any of them, he added.The DM appealed to the people to stay indoors and not venture out of their homes.People have been told to adhere to social distancing, he said, adding that two control rooms have been set up in the district in light of the virus outbreak.Don't sack workers: Punjab govt to industriesThe Punjab government has issued an advisory to industries and commercial establishments in the state, asking them not to terminate employees or deduct their wages, as non-essential factories remain shut due to a countrywide lockdown to combat coronavirus.Any employee who takes leave due to the Covid-19 pandemic should be treated on duty as also the workers of factories or units made non-operational by any government order over coronavirus, the advisory said.Principal secretary (labour) V. K. Janjua said the department felt that termination of workforce or deduction in their salaries would hamper the morale of workers in this fight to contain the virus.We have issued an advisory, he told PTI on Sunday.Notably, on Saturday, reports emerged from neighbouring Haryana about migrant workers setting out on foot to go back to their homes in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. All modes of transport have been suspended due to the countrywide lockdown announced on March 24.In the advisory, the labour department has asked all employers, owners of factories, shops and commercial establishments not to terminate the services or deduct the wages of their workers, particularly casual or contractual ones.If any employee/worker of such unit takes leave due to this pandemic (coronavirus), he may be treated as on duty without any deduction in wages for this period. If the place of employment has been made non-operational due to Covid-19 by any order/advisory of the government, the employee of such unit should be deemed to be on duty, said an advisory.

2020-03-29Inside India's Fight Against Noise Pollution - The Wire
The Sciences Health Environment Space Education Facebook Twitter Now Reading Inside India’s Fight Against Noise Pollution The Sciences Health Environment Space Education Environment, Health, The Sciences Inside India’s Fight Against Noise Pollution 29/03/2020 Chris Berdik Read Next What Would a Workers-Owned Pharma Company Be Like? On a muggy September evening during festivities for the Hindu god Ganesh, Sumaira Abdulali darted through Mumbai’s crowded streets with a handheld sound meter. After 10 days of prayers and offerings, this was the night of Ganpati, when thousands of Ganesh idols are paraded down to the sea for ceremonial immersion. Abdulali, an environmental activist, hurried across a street swarming with auto rickshaws that honked and revved their engines. In the next block, a 10-foot elephant-headed Ganesh followed a platoon of dhol tasha drummers, clarinetists, and the tinny melody of a bulbul tarang, the Indian banjo, amplified by mounted loudspeakers. As they approached, the drummers drowned out every other sound — the crowd, the honking, and even the shrill whistles of the traffic police. Abdulali’s sound meter registered 115 decibels, as loud as a chainsaw and a danger to hearing in less than a minute.    This story was supported by the Pulitzer Center. This sound check, one of dozens that night, was part of Abdulali’s nearly two-decade war on noise pollution in Mumbai, a city that many researchers agree may be among the loudest examples of a global public health problem. In a rapidly growing and urbanizing world, more people are exposed to more noise, and multiple reports by the World Health Organization, most recently in 2018, indicate that rising decibel levels are among the top environmental risks to health. This is particularly true for the exploding, high-density megacities of the developing world, where the cacophony of urban growth is uniquely unrelenting. In addition to hearing, the reports suggest, noise harms the body more broadly, from sleep patterns to brain development to cardiovascular health. “We’ve known about some of these health impacts for decades,” said Richard Neitzel, an environmental health scientist and noise researcher at the University of Michigan’s School of Public Health, who notes that some activists have labeled noise the next secondhand smoke. “I think the key difference is tobacco smoke causes cancer and emphysema that kills you outright,” he said. “Noise effects are a little more indirect, but they can be just as lethal.” Abdulali, who has earned the nickname the Minister of Noise, and a grassroots network of other concerned citizens have steadily made the case that the sonic onslaught is not just a nuisance but also a serious health hazard. They have taken offenders to court to force new regulations. And when those regulations were largely ignored, they have kept up the pressure for enforcement, taking their noise meters to the streets and publicizing their findings on social media. But fighting noise has often meant fighting powerful interests, for whom loudness represents political potency, economic dynamism, and growth. Festival organizers and their political allies, for instance, have pushed back, calling the anti-noise campaigns extreme, arbitrary, and even biased against Hindu celebrations. At the Ganesh festival, Abdulali showed her sound reading to a nearby policeman. Rather than quiet the ear-popping performance, he promised to call in a special squad armed with their own sound meters. There was no time to verify this. The streets were crammed with countless other noisy processions that demanded Abdulali’s attention. Still, she counted the promise as progress. Back in 2003, when she started patrolling Mumbai, no cops would have joined her on the front lines. In fact, she recalled, “everyone told me that nobody can control noise in Mumbai, or anywhere in India, because we are a noisy people. We like noise.” But Abdulali knew better. Early on, she’d offered her cell phone number to be published as a noise-complaint hotline in the Times of India. “People were really, really disturbed. They would cry on the phone,” she said. “They would tell me, ‘we know you can’t help us, but at least you’re listening to us and not telling us that it’s us who are crazy for feeling so impacted.’” § At the festival, Abdulali moved on to a phalanx of drummers wearing orange shirts and white Gandhi caps. Behind them, a man hammered on an empty metal oxygen canister hanging from a rolling wooden frame. The procession leader spotted Abdulali and motioned for the hammer-wielder to ease up, but not before she clocked him at 120 decibels. (Decibels measure sound on a logarithmic scale, meaning that every 10 decibels represent a 10-fold increase; a 60-decibel conversation has 10 times the acoustic intensity of a 50-decibel refrigerator hum.) The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recommends no more than eight hours a day at a weighted average of 85 decibels, about as loud as heavy traffic. The recommended exposure limit is halved for every three-decibel increase in volume, and it’s cumulative. So, even if someone works in a very quiet place, such as library, they will hit that danger threshold if they listen to 88-decibel music during their half-hour commute and later spend an hour and a half with friends at a local bar that hits 91 decibels. When sound reaches 120 decibels — like the oxygen-tank-clangs — it can cause almost instant hearing damage by destroying tiny hair cells in the inner ear, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. These hairs cells transform the vibrations of sound into electrical signals that travel to the to the brain, which interprets and sorts them into the sounds we hear. Over time, loud noise can kill enough of these critical cells to degrade hearing and cause the ringing in the ears known as tinnitus. ▲ Above, a snippet of everyday traffic noise in Mumbai. Incessant honking is one of the biggest noise offenders in India, and several recent studies have found high rates of hearing loss among the nation’s traffic police officers. Audio: Chris Berdik Noise is also linked to chronic stress and sleep disruption, both of which are bad for heart health. One study published in the British Medical Journal in 2013, for instance, examined the health records of some 6 million Americans 65 and older living near airports, and found that every 10 decibel rise in aircraft noise exposure correlated with a 3.5 percent rise in hospitalizations for heart trouble. Similarly, a 2014 analysis published in the journal Noise and Health examined 14 previous noise studies undertaken mostly in the United Kingdom and continental Europe, as well as Canada and Japan. That analysis found that across the various study locales, average heart-disease risk bumped up 8 percent for every 10-decibel uptick in highway noise. Between hearing loss and stress-induced health problems, the WHO estimated that noise pollution annually robs Western Europe’s 340 million people of at least 1 million disability-free years. “It has been well documented that noise exposure contributes to hearing loss, tinnitus, heart disease, stroke, anxiety, stress, depression, learning difficulties, job performance, sleep disorders, and reduced cognitive abilities,” declared the American Academy of Nursing in a 2016 position statement. “Noise is more than an annoyance; it is a public health hazard.” While most research on noise and health comes from Europe and North America, studies out of India and other developing countries are showing elevated rates of hearing loss in high-noise occupations. For instance, in 2015, the Indian Journal of Community Health published a study of 150 traffic police in the northern city of Jammu. Officers who had been on the job for at least three years showed about six times as much hearing loss as officers who had spent less time on the streets. Another study conducted in Vadodara, the third largest city in the northwest Indian state of Gujarat, found hearing loss in 80 out of the 88 traffic police tested. And a small 2018 study published by researchers in Chennai, the capital of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, checked the hearing of 30 auto-rickshaw drivers and diagnosed 23 with hearing loss. Also read: Sensing Change: How Sound, Light and Smell Can Affect Plants and Animals India’s physicians are increasingly trying to spread the word that that noise hurts health, said Sujata Rao, an ear, nose, and throat doctor and past president of the Association of Medical Consultants in Mumbai, a medical advocacy and education group. That message can be a tough sell during festival season. “In India, celebrations are equated with noise, and that association can’t be banished or washed off so easily,” said Rao. “But, slowly and surely, I think if the health effects of noise become more known, probably a change in mindset may occur.” To bolster awareness, doctors from the Indian state of Kerala created the National Initiative for Safe Sound (NISS) in 2013. “We were all noticing an increase in hearing loss,” said NISS co-founder, C. John Panicker, an ear, nose, and throat doctor and vice president of the Indian Medical Association. The initiative has since spread nationwide, hosting annual conferences, publishing booklets, and offering legal advice for people fighting noise pollution. Abdulali has worked with NISS to spread no-honking days throughout India. “I think everyone is concerned with their own health. It’s just that they haven’t quite made the link with noise,” she said. “And they haven’t made that link, because they’ve been misinformed. They’ve been told by the politicians who make this noise that it’s just for a little while, just a few days of the year. And you’re having fun. They’re not told that it accumulates.” § A few miles from the main beach where the Ganesh idols would end up in the sea, the raucous parades passed a mosque with a white sign the size of a license plate reading: Silence Zone. The ongoing struggle over these silence zones — areas within 328 feet of schools, hospitals, courts, and places of worship where sound must be limited — tracks the history of noise-pollution activism in Mumbai. The city’s first anti-noise campaign began in the mid-1980s, with a group of Mumbai residents led by Yeshwant Oke, a pediatrican, and Saad Ali, a local businessman and Abdulali’s late uncle. Using local sound readings and a report from the WHO, the activists filed a series of public interest litigation cases against factories in residential areas, houses of worship blasting prayers from roof-mounted loudspeakers, and all-night discos during festival season. In the early 2000s, Abdulali, who was then a young mother looking for part-time work, volunteered to help. In 2000, a string of legal victories culminated with a court ordering the environmental ministry to create nationwide noise-pollution laws. The rules set day and night decibel limits by zone — including the silence zones. The use of loudspeakers was prohibited after 10 p.m. (In October 2002, the Indian government amended the rules to let local governments extend the cutoff to midnight on 15 days each year.) A sign marks the “silence zone” outside a mosque in Mumbai. Visual: Chris Berdik But the new rules didn’t address enforcement. How would people know where the silence zones began and ended? What agency would devote the resources to measure the noise? And who would go to court to punish violations that could, technically, lead to stiff fines or up to three months in jail? With no clear answers, the laws were mostly dead letters until Abdulali and allies began pushing the rules city-by-city. Armed with sound data, the activists returned to court to file petitions of non-compliance and contempt citations against authorities who failed to stop the racket. For instance, in 2009, Abdulali won a court order that the Mumbai city government needed to mark the silence zones with signs. She is now pushing for the zones’ boundaries to be put on an official city map to help shape urban planning, development, and licensing. Besides fighting noise in the courts, Abdulali has spent years trying to convince her fellow Mumbaikars that she is not anti-religion, anti-development, or anti-fun, but rather concerned about their wellbeing. Collaborating with charities, universities, and NGOs, she has provided free hearing screenings to traffic police and others, created anti-honking social media campaigns, and developed education initiatives such as a student-created public service announcement against firecrackers during festivals. Some officials have warmed to the activists’ efforts. Mumbai police spokesperson, Pranaya Ashok, said that every police station in the city has five to 10 noise meters, which they’ve used to confirm around 500 cases — out of 7,198 incidents — where noise levels have broken the law. A lot of the time, the noise stops before the police can arrive on the scene. Ashok also noted that quieting a metropolis like Mumbai is daunting. “Being a city which is constantly on the move and adding the volumes of traffic, the continuous construction activity, and the industrial units,” he said, “the ambient noise levels are already very high,” quite often over the legal limits. Still, Ashok insisted, “if a complaint comes to us, we definitely take action.” § There is no denying that Mumbai is loud. A 2018 study by the Indian government’s National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI) analyzed noise readings from Mumbai and about two-dozen other cities in the state of Maharashtra. Mumbai’s average noise levels were well over the legal limits (for instance, 80 decibels, as loud as a vacuum cleaner, at night in residential areas). The city’s loudest spot, according to a sound meter mounted around the height of an adult by NEERI, was at the intersection outside the central train terminus. The intersection averaged 95 decibels – or power-tool territory. And it isn’t unusual for people to be hit with decibels in the 70s and 80s range throughout a typical day in the city. As in many global megacities, Mumbai’s noise is partly a side effect of explosive growth. Some 23 million people are estimated to live in the metropolitan area, up 5 million since the most recent census in 2011. The city’s infrastructure can’t keep up. The roads are overwhelmed with vehicles and pedestrians avoiding the sidewalk scrums. According to the lead author of NEERI’s 2018 noise study, environmental engineer Ritesh Vijay, the resulting stream of blaring horns is the worst noise offender. “Whether it’s a highway, or a city street, or an expressway, people honk like anything,” Vijay said by cellphone from Nagpur, another Maharashtra city featured in the report. In the background, a chorus of horns blared. “My God,” he yelled. “I should say, I’m sorry about all the honking.” Indian drivers consider honking to be “a means of self-expression,” said Abdulali, whether it’s happiness, boredom, or anger. “We’ve forgotten that the horn was originally a safety device,” she added. “And only a safety device.” In addition to honking, Abdulali blames the omnipresent construction that often continues through the night, as well as a noise source that’s especially prevalent in Mumbai — the street festivals. Festival season starts after the summer monsoons and continues well into the spring with a series of Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Christian, and secular holidays, many observed over multiple days, and celebrated with parades, outdoor music, and firecrackers. Lowering the volume of these festivals is complicated, because many are intertwined with politics. The Ganesh celebrations, for example, dating to the late 19th century when a leader of India’s freedom struggle named Lokmanya Tilak transformed a fairly private observance into a major social gathering and carnival. Not only did the public observances promote Hindu solidarity, they also gave cover to meetings and fundraising to help undermine British colonial rule. Also read: How Noise Pollution Is Silencing Whale Songs – and Why That’s a Problem Political parties and their neighbourhood representatives have since taken charge of Ganesh festivities. The streets are lined with temporary pavilions — called pandals — that hold painted plaster idols, and right next to those are collection boxes for offerings by locals who pray for the god’s blessings. In fact, months before the festival, fundraisers go door to door collecting cash that supports an expansive festival economy — the local contractors who build and decorate the pandals, artists who create the idols, the musicians who march in the processions, and all the merchants needed to sustain 10 days of celebration. The politicians and festival organisers sometimes clash with noise pollution activists. Abdulali said she’s been shouted and cursed at when her sound metering shuts down a deafening musical performance or political rally. The thousands of politically-connected groups that organise the Ganesh celebrations, known as mandals, have made repeated appeals to state authorities that the silence zones should either be abolished or lawfully ignored on special nights such as Ganpati. “This is India, and our festivals are celebrated with a bang,” said one mandal leader in a 2017 interview for the Indian news website, Scroll.in. “How can we take out our processions if there are silence zones everywhere?” Reached by phone, Naresh Dahibawkar, the president of an organisation representing some 10,000 mandals in Mumbai said his group has actually enforced quieter processions among its members in recent years. Still, he wants the restrictions on noise lifted for a few nights of the Ganesh festival, including Ganpati, to give Mumbai’s young dancers, actors, and musicians ample time on stage to show off their talents to the huge crowds. “It’s not because I want to violate the noise pollution rules,” he said. “But let us organise these entertainment programs. Our only intention is to provide a stage to children, to help them become artists.” Dahibawkar also echoed the criticism many have levied against Abdulali, which is that she is unfairly targets Ganpati and other Hindu festivals for her anti-noise campaigns. “I told her, that you people wake up only when Ganpati festival comes around,” he said. “Where are they during other festivals?” But in addition to metering non-religious noise violations such as car horns and the late-night construction of new Mumbai metro lines, Abdulali said she regularly tracks decibels during the Muslim festivals of Eid. And in December 2018, an angry crowd surrounded and threatened her at the Mahim Fair honouring the Sufi Muslim scholar and saint Makhdum Ali Mahimi. Police had to escort her to safety. § For Abdulali, progress has come in fits and starts. On April 7, 2008, she had a success: The Mumbai traffic police joined her to mark the city’s – and the country’s – first no-honking day and stepped up related fines. In January 2018, the effort expanded into a Horn Vrat – literally a horn fast – supported by the Maharashtra transportation department and the auto rickshaw drivers’ union. For months, volunteers drove an auto rickshaw adorned with 150 bicycle horns and handed out flyers on the dangers of noise, which encouraged drivers to curb their honking (Ashok, the police spokesperson, said there are no firm data showing honking has improved in general). And as for the silence zones, more than 1,500 were recognised across Mumbai by 2017. But in August of that year, the Indian government amended the noise rules so that silence zones had to be designated by state governments, rather than local authorities. That change invalidated every silence zone in Mumbai (110 of them have since been reinstated). The setback had a silver lining, according to Abdulali, who credits the resulting uproar and public pressure for the government’s 2018 decision to ban DJs blasting Bollywood music in festival processions. And the ban led to quieter 2018 and 2019 festival seasons, according to her noise data, which has been used by the Bombay High Court and, she said, verified by the police and the Pollution Control Boards. The DJs went to court to fight the ban, represented by the Professional Audio and Lighting Association (PALA India). A final ruling is still pending. In a phone interview, the lawyer representing the DJs, Satish D. Talekar, called the ban “very arbitrary,” noting that traditional instruments are incredibly loud but left alone. The sound and lighting professionals rely on festivals to earn a living, he said, and now “their business has come to a standstill.” “Apart from that, there are many issues involved in it,” he continued, from personal liberty to “even the fundamental right of practicing religion.” Mumbai anti-noise activist Sumaira Abdulali checks the sound levels of a procession on the final night of the 10-day Ganesh festival, when thousands of idols are led by drums and other music down to the sea for ceremonial immersion. Visual: Chris Berdik Back at the Ganesh festival, shortly before 10 p.m., a truck blared music from roof-mounted loudspeakers at 115 decibels near Mumbai’s Shivaji Park. Abdulali alerted a police officer who told the driver to turn the music down. Still gripping her sound meter, Abdulali continued down the road. A man on a blue Yamaha motorcycle slowed beside her, his engine rumbling as he matched her pace. He looked over a couple times before leaning in, saying something, and speeding off. “He just said, thank you for your service,” Abdulali translated. Standing in an old colonial section of the city watching about half a dozen Ganesh idols lumber toward the sea, Abdulali said that this Ganpati was more subdued than usual. While the decibel levels of individual processions were still dangerous, the extreme loudness was less omnipresent than in year’s past. “Normally, this whole street would be filled with noise from DJs,” she said, not just from the idols but from speakers mounted on the balconies and verandas, creating a flood of sound that would echo off the hulking stone buildings. Noise improvements have also spread beyond Mumbai. A few hours away in Pune, a biology professor at the College of Engineering named Mahesh Shindikar and a platoon of students have fanned out across the city to take 24-hours of sound readings during Ganpati for the past 18 years. For the first few years, the 24-hour average hovered around 90 decibels before climbing to 114 decibels in 2013. It has fallen since then, and in 2019 it dipped down to 86 decibels. In Delhi, an activist named Ravi Kalra has led no-honking days and noise awareness campaigns for more than a decade. And in other cities, people have followed Abdulali’s lead and gone to court to get local enforcement of noise laws. For example, Mahesh Bedekar, an obstetrician and gynaecologist who runs a hospital for mothers and newborns in the Mumbai suburb of Thane, found that noise from two nearby marriage halls was disrupting his patients’ sleep. When he complained, the local police took no action. So he filed public interest litigation to force silence-zone recognition for hospitals throughout Thane. During the Ganesh festival in Ulhasnagar, an hour east of Mumbai, drummers perform directly beneath a city billboard against noise pollution. Ulhasnagar is the noisiest urban area in the Indian state of Maharashtra, according to the Indian government’s National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI). Visual: Chris Berdik Further east in the city of Ulhasnagar, the noise-pollution enforcer is Sarita Khanchandani, a former science teacher. During her 18 years in the classroom, part of her curriculum was environmental conservation, but the disconnect between these lessons and India’s worsening pollution bothered her. “I started asking myself, what am I doing? I’m just imparting theoretical knowledge. There’s nothing practical about it,’” Khanchandani said. In 2011, she founded an environmental activism group called the Hirali Foundation, focusing on noise because she assumed it would be an easier fix than air or water pollution. “I thought it would be easier,” she recalled with a laugh. Ulhasnagar is the noisiest city in the state of Maharashtra according to the NEERI study, with weekday sound levels averaging 91.4 decibels. During festival season, Khanchandani races to the scene of noise complaints. She also tweets out every violation she finds and copies the local police. Having local noise watchdogs is critical, said Abdulali. It’s relatively easy to put up a silence-zone sign or distribute no-honking pamphlets, but real enforcement takes commitment. “The rhetoric is great. But, it’s only where people are actually on the ground, speaking up, taking action, and forcing it to happen that it’s working,” she said. “Like Sarita in Ulhasnagar, if she wasn’t out there, then all the court orders in the world would not have done anything.” § As the night of Ganpati moved along, Abdulali followed the processions to the beach, noting every reading from her meter in a ledger and broadcasting some on Twitter. Ganpati is one of the nights each year where Mumbai authorities allow loudspeakers until midnight. As the clock ticked past 12, the idols continued their march, but the music faded. Not everywhere. Fifteen minutes after the deadline, Abdulali sound checked a procession where the drummers were still going strong. She showed the reading to a group of police, who approached the procession. The drummers delivered a percussive burst before going silent. There was one final stop — the grandstands near the point on the beach where the Ganesh idols would float in the sea. Here, politicians routinely flout the noise laws, shouting words of welcome and celebration through loudspeakers well past midnight. She measured one group pushing 100 decibels and told a nearby cop. “What can I do about it?” he shrugged. “Go and tell the senior officer.” The Mumbai police had a temporary headquarters on the beach, its interior hidden behind a wall lit by floodlights and plastered with a billboard collage of police photos captioned: “Your Safety. Our Responsibility.” Several cops milled around a doorway draped with garlands of marigolds. Also read: Sound Pollution, the Not So Silent Killer Abdulali spoke briefly with one of the cops and then headed inside. About five minutes later, she emerged with several policemen, including the chief, with his three-star epaulets. His holstered 9mm pistol was another mark of high rank in a police force where most are not authorized to carry firearms. The others brandished long night sticks, and as the group marched back to the procession route, one of the officers broke off to swat the balloons of an unlicensed vendor, popping the lot. The police headquarters had radioed ahead to the officers by the grandstands to pull the plug on the politicians. Soon the loudspeakers were silent. Satisfied that his orders had been obeyed, the chief took his leave. But another high-ranking officer soon appeared. He wore two-star epaulets, and instead of a pistol, he was armed with a noise meter. He approached Abdulali and spoke with an aggrieved air, repeatedly holding up his sound meter for her acknowledgment. The officer wanted to show how her how diligent his team had been in their noise duties. (In previous years, she has filed or threatened contempt citations against police.) Abdulali listened politely, but stone-faced, with tired eyes and sweat beading up on her forehead. A few more cops joined the presentation, including a couple others with sound meters, one of which they connected to a handheld printer that spat out the noise readings taken that night. After the group broke up, Abdulali said she still isn’t sure how to measure progress. “The truth is, I don’t know,” she said. “But the fact that these police are carrying noise meters at all — no matter what they actually do with them — and the fact that people see me and my noise meter and know what it’s about, I mean, I never thought this day would come.” Then, she laughed. “Now, if only we could do the same for honking.” Chris Berdik is a freelance science and education journalist in Milton, Massachusetts.

Coronavirus in Navi Mumbai: Kharghar man duped of Rs 51,000 while trying to buy alcohol online By FPJ Web DeskPixabayThe coronavirus lockdown is becoming hard for drinkers with shops closed in Mumbai and Navi Mumbai since March 20. Amid this, a gentleman from Kharghar got duped of Rs 51,000 while trying to quench his thirst for the forbidden fruit. Unable to buy alcohol amid the lockdown, a man from Kharghar found a shop online which claimed alcohol. Ordering two bottles for Rs 1260, he ended up being duped of Rs 51,000, reported TOI.The gentleman in question ended up sharing his debit card number and OTPs multiple times.Earlier, a forward claimed that alcohol shops would be open across Maharashtra between 3 and 4 PM, but that was fake news as corroborated by The Free Press Journal. Earlier, Rishi Kapoor had advocated opening alcohol shops and written: “"Think. Government should for sometime in the evening open all licensed liquor stores. Don’t get me wrong. Man will be at home only what with all this depression, uncertainty around. Cops,doctors,civilians etc... need some release. Black mein to sell ho hi raha hai."

Mumbai region: Lockdown breathes life into polluted creeks and riversTop Searches:Coronavirus cases in MumbaiCoronavirus Death in MumbaiMumbai LockdownMaharashtra Coronavirus Helpline NumberCoronavirus Mumbai UpdateMumbai region: Lockdown breathes life into polluted creeks and riversChittaranjan Tembhekar & Pradeep Gupta | TNN | Updated: Mar 28, 2020, 12:42 ISTWaldhuni before lockdownMUMBAI/KALYAN: Rajesh Mhatre, a resident of Kalamboli and a regular jogger, says Kasardi river, into which treated effluents from neighbouring Taloja industrial area are released, has been smelling less for a couple of days, making his morning constitutional more pleasant. Birds, which preferred to flock near the creek, are flying towards the river as its water has been cleaned of its greasy turbidity in most stretches, he said. Life is also bouncing back in otherwise polluted patches and near the mouths of rivers, rivulets and nullahs in the metropolitan region, as industrial effluent and other waste that flows into them daily, has reduced in volume by 50%, confirm senior Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) officials. With the rivers springing back to life, birds are flocking in larger numbers and minus the noise from traffic, their chirping is audible. Officials said these areas are experiencing a return to nature. They said around 60% of the industrial units in the region are closed; only pharma, petrochemical units and distilleries producing sanitizers are working inside industrial estates amid the shutdown. Taloja creek, Navapur creek in Tarapur and patches of the Waldhuni near Ulhas creek are the stretches where the river has rejuvenated. The fish may take a little longer to replenish in these otherwise polluted zones. Nullahs which get industrial effluents from MIDC areas in Kalyan, Ambernath and Badlapur flush it into Waldhuni and Ulhas rivers, ultimately flowing into the sea via Kalyan-Vasai creek. Locals residing next to both rivers said pollution has reduced. Some said Ulhas river was clearer than Waldhuni river. They said though most industries are shut due to the nationwide lockdown, untreated sewage from nullahs flowing through Kalyan, Ulhasnagar and Ambernath is still released into the Waldhuni river.

Photographs and videos of many of them walking to their hometowns, especially in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh, have begun doing the rounds.Against this backdrop, the ministry of home affairs has asked all the states and union territories to urgently take steps to provide adequate support, including food and shelter, to migrant labourers to avoid inconvenience and further spread of the virus.They have also been asked to take the aid of agencies, including NGOs, to provide food, shelter, and basic amenities like clean drinking water and sanitation. This is needed to mitigate the situation for the unorganised sector, particularly stranded migrant workers.Further, the Ministry of Home has asked states and UTs to take steps to ensure that students and working women from other states are also allowed to continue in their existing accommodation. These initiatives will help prevent the movement of such people. The state government has already launched a slew of initiatives to help migrant labourers.Minister of Tourism Aaditya Thackeray, in his tweet, said, "CM Uddhav Thackeray ji has asked all district collectors to find and reach out to all those from other states, including pilgrims, labourers, and so on, stuck in Maharashtra due to the lockdown and ensure that they are looked after by the state.’’Also ReadLatest coronavirus update: Kerala IAS officer skips isolation, traced in Kanpur house; axedFurther, he also responded to the tweet by Trinamool Congress MP Derek Obrien that 800 labourers from West Bengal are stuck in the state. He assured that the state government will take care of them.Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren had urged Thackeray to help 28 labourers stranded in Ulhasnagar in Thane district. Local Shiv Sena MP Shrikant Shinde intervened in response to Thackeray’s call and distributed food packets to those labourers.About 63 residents of Bokaro in Jharkhand, who were working in Navi Mumbai, wanted to go home in view of the lockdown, which has badly affected the livelihood and movement of people.Thackeray asked the district collector concerned to provide them necessary assistance.

2020-03-26I had this artistic urge to do a horror film, says comedian Ashish Chanchlani - Cinestaan.com
I had this artistic urge to do a horror film, says comedian Ashish Chanchlani The popular YouTuber talks about his first short film, Aakhri Safar, and his growing popularity on digital media. New Delhi - 26 Mar 2020 20:00 IST Sukhpreet Kahlon Comedian and YouTuber, Ashish Chanchlani recently released his first short film, Aakhri Safar, which combines the genres of horror and comedy. The film stars Deepak Sampat and Akshata Sonawane and is about incidents which unfold one night when an autorickshaw driver gets a sinister passenger.   Over the years, Chanchlani has gathered an increasing number of followers and his channel has more than 10 million subscribers presently. Speaking about his work in the digital space and his channel on Youtube, which he started in the year 2009, he said, “It’s been a roller coaster of a journey. I come from a very small town, Ulhasnagar, and being here, trying to do something different, was very difficult."  Chanchlani said, "Although I started my channel in 2009, I started making content in 2014. Then I saw that Vines were being made in America and started making that. I created something original and desi and posted on Instagram. I had 200 followers, and it slowly started growing. I started making short videos on Instagram and then on Facebook. Then people started stealing my videos on Youtube, so I had no other option but to come on Youtube and become more active!  So, I have seen the evolution and big shift in digital content. The space has changed over the years.” As an artist, Chanchlani has experienced both the positive and negative aspects of digital media. “I am blessed that I got into this profession because I got an opportunity to entertain people. There are ups and downs that come with this profession. Firstly, you have to be very careful about what you say, because once you are a known face, there are more eyes on you. But the good thing is that you can reach out to so many people - they could be in any corner of the world, but they know you. Digital also gives you a personal feel. It’s like when fans and supporters meet me, they feel like they are meeting a friend. That is one of the biggest advantages of the field,” he said. Though his comic videos have been receiving an overwhelming response, he wished to explore other avenues and thought of making a short film. The result was Aakhri Safar. He said, “Since the last two years, I had been making a lot of comedies and had a large audience. So I thought about giving them something different. You also get bored doing the same stuff again and again. I had this artistic urge to do a horror film.” The film is a horror comedy, which allowed Chanchlani to stay true to his comedy roots and enthrall his audience. “I did not expect that people will give such a response. The film got almost 10 million views. Seeing the response, I feel that maybe I should do more experiments, but on my channel. People love comedy, so maybe my experiments will be fewer, but I will definitely do it. At least to satisfy myself," he said. The comedian also spoke about his future plans which are currently on hold becuse of the ensuing lockdown due to COVID-19. “Seeing the condition around the world, it is the right time to sit at home and prepare and prepare. I have plans for some comedy videos and some more films, but right now, I will look more at the comedy genre because of the prevailing condition.”    People in this story Ashish Chanchlani Director Movies in this story Aakhri Safar Newsletter The best of Cinestaan in your inbox Your e-mail address   Thank You For Subscribing!

He said, “Since the last two years, I had been making a lot of comedies and had a large audience. So I thought about giving them something different. You also get bored doing the same stuff again and again. I had this artistic urge to do a horror film.” The film is a horror comedy, which allowed Chanchlani to stay true to his comedy roots and enthrall his audience. “I did not expect that people will give such a response. The film got almost 10 million views. Seeing the response, I feel that maybe I should do more experiments, but on my channel. People love comedy, so maybe my experiments will be fewer, but I will definitely do it. At least to satisfy myself," he said. The comedian also spoke about his future plans which are currently on hold becuse of the ensuing lockdown due to COVID-19. “Seeing the condition around the world, it is the right time to sit at home and prepare and prepare. I have plans for some comedy videos and some more films, but right now, I will look more at the comedy genre because of the prevailing condition.”    People in this story Ashish Chanchlani Director Movies in this story Aakhri Safar Newsletter The best of Cinestaan in your inbox Your e-mail address   Thank You For Subscribing!

2020-03-26Neighbours surprise Mumbai couple with warm welcome - Times of India
Neighbours surprise Mumbai couple with warm welcomeTop Searches:Coronavirus cases in MumbaiCoronavirus in MaharashtraCoronavirus in IndiaMaharashtra Coronavirus Helpline NumberMumbai LockdownNeighbours surprise Mumbai couple with warm welcomeSumitra Debroy & Pradeep Gupta | TNN | Mar 26, 2020, 06:02 ISTMUMBAI: If there was relief at recovery for the first batch of the city's Covid-19 patients who were discharged on Tuesday, there was also anxiety about how neighbours would welcome them. And most have been pleasantly surprised. The city's index patients - a septuagenarian and his 68-year-old wife - began their journey home in an ambulance from Kasturba Hospital on Tuesday evening. She had been suffering from side-effects of the drugs and was too weak to stand. So, the husband was worried how to reach their second floor apartment, but above all, he was fretting about how the neighbours would react to their homecoming. A day after, he told TOI : "They have pleasantly surprised us. They arranged for our dinner on Tuesday night. It was simple homecooked food. They also provided us with lunch on Wednesday and someone has promised us dinner too. We are happy to be back home". The couple had gone to Dubai as part of a 40-member tour group. They were the first to test positive from Mumbai on March 11, two days after another couple from Pune had tested positive. In a Ghatkopar slum, the son of a 68-year-old woman was apprehensive since people in the locality had treated them as untouchables after she was detected with the infection. However, on Tuesday, when his mother returned and they showed that her reports were normal, things were better. "It will improve once she gets fitter," he said with relief. In Ulhasnagar, after a 49-year old woman and her brother were discharged and reached home on Tuesday, their families were not only relieved that they made it safely, but said people living around them also were happy. The couple in the western suburbs has also been awed by the support of the BMC. On Wednesday morning, members from the ward office landed at their house and sanitised it. "They have also assured us of any help, including buying medicines during the lockdown," said the man. The man said: "Our worry now is how to shop for vegetables and fruits during the lockdown. There are long queues and we cannot step out for another 14 days," he said. DownloadThe Times of India News App for Latest City NewsSubscribeStart Your Daily Mornings with Times of India Newspaper!

And most have been pleasantly surprised. Coronavirus outbreak live updatesThe city’s index patients — a septuagenarian and his 68-year-old wife — began their journey home in an ambulance from Kasturba Hospital on Tuesday evening.

The couple in the western suburbs has also been awed by the support of the BMC.

They have also assured us of any help, including buying medicines during the lockdown. The officials are constantly in touch with us over the phone, which is very reassuring,” said the man. The flat next door belongs to their daughter, who lives abroad. There is a neighbor on the floor, for whom they had got a box of dates from Dubai. Unfortunately, the person has also tested positive and is admitted in Kasturba. Profusely thanking his neighbours for providing them dinner, the man said: “We have asked them to keep the food near the elevator. They call us once the food is placed there,” he said. “Our worry now is how to shop for vegetables and fruits. There are long queues and we cannot step out for another 14 days,” he said.

At present, 41 patients are being treated in Mumbai, while three have succumbed to the infection in the state. As many as 18 persons are undergoing treatment in Pune and 12 in Pimpri Chinchwad.

A 65-year-old coronavirus patient died in Mumbai on Monday evening, taking the death toll due to COVID-19 in the metropolis to three, as per the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation.  The deceased man had recently returned from the United Arab Emirates to Ahmedabad. He later complained of fever, cough and difficulty in breathing and was admitted to Kasturba Hospital in Mumbai, the BMC said in a statement on Tuesday. He had pre-existing ailments including high blood pressure and severe diabetes, it added. Speaking to reporters, Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope said that two of the COVID-19 patients in the State were in critical condition. The Minister also said that around 15 coronavirus patients in the state have responded well to treatment and they could be discharged soon, but the final decision will be taken by the doctors. Earlier on Tuesday morning, BMC officials said that 12 COVID-19 patients admitted to hospital in Mumbai have been cured of the deadly viral infection.  Pune-based firm develops kit for faster confirmation of COVID-19 cases  MUMBAI : IN WHAT may go down as an important solution in India’s fight against coronavirus, Pune-based Mylabs Discovery Solutions has created an indigenous solution to test patients for COVID-19 that can halve the time taken for results. The molecular diagnostic company, which received statutory approvals late on Monday from authorities, can manufacture over 15,000 testing kits per day from its facility at Lonavala in Pune district and the same will be ramped up to 25,000 kits per day, its co-founder Shrikant Patole said. Citing the experience in South Korea, the World Health Organisation has been stressing on the importance of tests to fight the pandemic, which has so far claimed nine lives in India. Though around 500 people have been tested positive for the virus in India so far, experts are bracing for a sharp increase fearing it may have spread across and also point out to a low level of testing in the country.  Patole explained that the company is able to shorten the test time to 2.5 hours with the ‘Mylab PathoDetect COVID-19 Qualitative PCR kit’ as against the prevalent 6-8 hours because its team has created a solution that does both the screening and confirmation jobs simultaneously. Its team of 25 scientists started working on the solution six weeks ago, fearing that the crisis may eventually hit India, he said, adding that the company had started as a trading firm in 2012 and diversified into research in 2016. The test for COVID-19 will also pick up positive cases among asymptomatic patients, Patole said. , adding that the approvals from the National Institute of Virology, Indian Council of Medical Research and Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation (CDSCO) were received after a test sampling on patients at Mumbai’s Kasturba Hospital which is the nodal location for treating coronavirus cases.  He did, however, specify the sample size where the kit was used to confirm results. The Mylab kit was selected along with a solution offered by a German company for the tests. Patole explained that till now, India has been using kits prepared by the State-run National Institute of Virology (NIV), also based in Pune, but it was the fears over the increase in numbers which made private sector interventions in manufacturing necessary.  The testing kits done by NIV are costing up to Rs 4,500 per sample if we include both screening and confirmation, Patole said, claiming that Mylabs is confident of selling the kits at a fourth of that cost. He said allowing private labs to conduct tests is essential given the potential threats. Patole also said that its kit can work within the infrastructure for testing available with Indian diagnostic labs, and does not require any new machinery, which the most imported. The company is in the process of creating similar test kits for HIV, hepatitis-B and also tuberculosis. A team of four founders and investors have invested over Rs 25 crore in the company till now and there are no external investors, Patole said. The company is looking to rope in investors, he added.

Two booked for spreading rumours on WhatsAppYou are in an offline modeTwo booked for spreading rumours on WhatsAppBy Somendranath SharmaSomendranath Sharma, Mumbai Mirror | Updated: Mar 24, 2020, 06:51 ISTPrint this articleReduce font sizeIncrease font sizeShareREPRESENTATIONAL IMAGEThey had circulated false information about fresh cases of infection in Kalyan and Ulhasnagar. The police have registered criminal cases against two people, including a woman, for allegedly circulating fake messages on WhatsApp regarding “patients” of coronavirus. The state government has already issued instructions to cops to take strict action against those who are involved in spreading rumours or false information on social media. Khadakpada police in Thane on Saturday registered a case against one JS Wadhwa under sections 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) and 186 (obstructing public servant in discharge of public functions). “One of our officers came to know that Wadhwa, a Kalyan resident, had circulated a message on a WhatsApp group that a woman from Ulhasnagar and her brother in Kalyan have tested positive,” said a police officer. When a police team reached her residence to inquire about the cases, she said that she had just forwarded the message without verifying the contents. She also said that she didn’t know the woman or the brother. When the cops warned her against spreading rumours and panic, she created a ruckus, said the officer. That’s when the police registered a case against her. In another case, a case was registered on Friday against a person who had informed the tehsilar in Shahapur about a tribal been infected by the virus. The information turned out to be false, police said. Neelima Suryawanshi, the tehsildar, is the complainant in the case. “She received information on WhatsApp from a person, identified only as Belavle, who had said that a tribal in Shahapur had tested positive. When it proved to be false, he was booked under sections 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) of the Indian Penal Code and section 51(b) (punishment for obstruction) of Disaster Management Act 2005,” said a police officer.

2020-03-24Two booked for spreading rumours on WhatsApp - Mumbai Mirror
Two booked for spreading rumours on WhatsAppYou are in an offline modeTwo booked for spreading rumours on WhatsAppBy Somendranath SharmaSomendranath Sharma, Mumbai Mirror | Updated: Mar 24, 2020, 06:51 ISTPrint this articleReduce font sizeIncrease font sizeShareREPRESENTATIONAL IMAGEThey had circulated false information about fresh cases of infection in Kalyan and Ulhasnagar. The police have registered criminal cases against two people, including a woman, for allegedly circulating fake messages on WhatsApp regarding “patients” of coronavirus. The state government has already issued instructions to cops to take strict action against those who are involved in spreading rumours or false information on social media. Khadakpada police in Thane on Saturday registered a case against one JS Wadhwa under sections 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) and 186 (obstructing public servant in discharge of public functions). “One of our officers came to know that Wadhwa, a Kalyan resident, had circulated a message on a WhatsApp group that a woman from Ulhasnagar and her brother in Kalyan have tested positive,” said a police officer. When a police team reached her residence to inquire about the cases, she said that she had just forwarded the message without verifying the contents. She also said that she didn’t know the woman or the brother. When the cops warned her against spreading rumours and panic, she created a ruckus, said the officer. That’s when the police registered a case against her. In another case, a case was registered on Friday against a person who had informed the tehsilar in Shahapur about a tribal been infected by the virus. The information turned out to be false, police said. Neelima Suryawanshi, the tehsildar, is the complainant in the case. “She received information on WhatsApp from a person, identified only as Belavle, who had said that a tribal in Shahapur had tested positive. When it proved to be false, he was booked under sections 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) of the Indian Penal Code and section 51(b) (punishment for obstruction) of Disaster Management Act 2005,” said a police officer.

Paramjit Singh Dahiya, deputy commissioner of police (zone IX Bandra division), said, “Though Mumbai Police will keep on visiting people, residents themselves have become very alert and report home quarantine violation immediately as they are also afraid.” A constable on one of the teams monitoring the patients said they are taking as many precautions as possible to avoid contracting the infection. “We have been taking all precautions, including wearing of masks. This morning, when I started for work my wife gave me a sanitizer. We have families and we have to be extra cautious to not bring the infection to them,” he said.

2020-03-23Pune: Testing for COVID-19 samples to start at IRSHA lab - Yahoo India News
Pune: Testing for COVID-19 samples to start at IRSHA labAnuradha MascarenhasThe Indian Express23 March 2020ReblogShareTweetShareShareChandigarh: Despite IDA advisory on COVID-19, govt dental clinics function as usualMoreSo far in Pune, apart from the National Institute of Virology, which is the apex Indian Council of Medical Research laboratory, the B J Medical college (BJMC) and Armed Forces Medical College can start conducting tests. (Express photo)Dr A C Mishra, director at the Interactive Research School for Health Affairs (IRSHA) at Bharati Vidyapeeth Deemed University, said the lab will soon start testing samples for coronavirus. Mishra, who was the former director of National Institute of Virology, added, “How long is it possible for government laboratories to test and authorities should even consider laboratories with good bio-safety facilities to start testing for coronavirus.”At Bharati Hospital and Research Centre, run by the Bharati Vidyapeeth Medical Foundation and Bharati Vidyapeeth Deemed University Medical College, coronavirus had been detected in a 41-year-old anganwadi worker who has been admitted to the ICU.While Dr Sanjay Lalwani, medical director, said samples of two doctors and two nurses had tested negative for coronavirus, the woman had many contacts who were being traced. There is not just a need for more samples but also for personal protective equipment, Lalwani told The Indian Express.Meanwhile, Dr Mishra, who was involved in the epidemiology and control planning of vector borne diseases, influenza, chandipura viruses and establishment of high containment laboratories BSL 3 and BSL 4 during his tenure as NIV director, now heads the Interactive Research School for Health Affairs (IRSHA) at Bharati Vidyapeeth Deemed to be University.“This is a non-influenza pandemic,” said Mishra, adding, “COVID-19 is not influenza although it behaves in some ways like influenza. This virus does not belong to the influenza family and infectivity is very high. When intense transmission occurs, large numbers of people can get infected. He said mild cases can result in symptoms like cough and mild fever. In severe cases, it results in life threatening pneumonia that can be fatal in the elderly, immuno-compromised people and individuals with underlying medical conditions.“We will be starting tests soon at our laboratory. There are three PCR machines and we have procured the reagents and test kits that include primers and probes. These are manufactured by commercial companies. One can buy them separately. At least 200 samples can be tested,” Mishra said.Tracing contacts of a coronavirus patient is a good precautionary measure but there are often cases where people who are in close connect cannot recall all their contacts.“In such a crisis situation, testing samples in the private sector should have started much earlier,” he said. “While the government has the capacity to test for samples with increasing numbers, standardised labs at scientific institutions and even university laboratories, where bio-safety facilities are in place to ensure samples are not mishandled, should be allowed to step up testing of samples,” Mishra said.So far in Pune, apart from the National Institute of Virology, which is the apex Indian Council of Medical Research laboratory, the B J Medical college (BJMC) and Armed Forces Medical College can start conducting tests. At BJMC’s microbiology department, authorities said they have procured the kits from NIV and have checked five samples sent from Naidu hospital.The ICMR has also announced that testing would be permitted at Thyrocare Mumbai, Suburban Diagnostics Mumbai, Metropolis Healthcare Ltd Mumbai and Sir H N Reliance Foundation Hospital and Research Centre, MumbaiYet to enter stage 3 of community transmission: State Helath MinisterState Health Minister Rajesh Tope said several measures have been taken to prevent community transmission of coronavirus. Of the 10 new cases detected, four are from Pune, five from Mumbai and one from Navi Mumbai. While the number of people with COVID-19 has climbed to 74, Tope said we are in stage 2 of transmission. “In most cases, 50 per cent people have contracted coronavirus after returning from international trips and the remaining are their close contacts,” Tope said, adding that India is still in stage 2 of transmission of coronavirus.In Pune, there are 27 people with coronavirus – 15 in the city and 12 in Pimpri-Chinchwad, 24 in Mumbai and four each in Nagpur, Navi Mumbai, Kalyan and Yavatmal. There are two persons in Ahmednagar and one each in Panvel, Thane, Ulhasnagar, Aurangabad and Ratnagiri.A total of 7,452 people across the state are under home quarantine, Pradeep Awate, state surveillance officer told The Indian Express.

First of all, from Day 1 itself, the details are taken on who all the person has met. The contact history is taken thoroughly and a set of leading questions are asked like where all did the person go and who all did the person meet etc. Other than that, a survey of 500 nearby houses is done and the survey continues for the next 14 days which tracks if anybody has any symptoms or not. This exercise is conducted thoroughly and generally, 16-20 people are involved in this exercise.Mumbai Police PRO DCP Pranay Ashoke added, Mumbai Police will provide all assistance as required in the exercise.The count of Covid-19 positive cases in Maharashtra is slowly inching towards the three-figure mark.

Despite CrPC Section 144 being invoked in the state, a number of people were seen out on streets on Monday while several main roads were packed with vehicles. In view of this, Thackeray said, "People should take this war against COVID-19 seriously. Section 144 of CrPC is invoked so that essential services continue to operate while rest of the services are suspended till March 31. People should not violate rules by crowding the streets." The chief minister on Sunday announced enforcement of prohibitory orders in the state to discourage people from gathering at public places and minimise chances of social transmission of coronavirus. The total number of coronavirus positive patients in Maharashtra rose to 74 on Sunday with addition of 10 more such cases. At 24, the highest number of these cases were reported from Mumbai, followed by 15 from Pune, 12 from Pimpri Chinchwada and four each from Navi Mumbai, Nagpur, Kalyan and Yavatmal, an official statement said. Two persons have tested positive in Ahmednagar, while one each in Panvel, Thane, Ulhasnagar, Aurangabad and Ratnagiri, it added.

Kalyan, Nagpur and Yavatmal have reported four cases each while Ahmednagar and Thane have two patients each. Panvel, Ulhasnagar, Aurangabad, Ratnagiri and Vasai Virar have reported one positive patient each, taking the total number to 89, the report said. The state has seen two Covid-19 deaths so far. A total of 255 people are currently under quarantine in the state and these include both confirmed and suspected coronavirus cases. Quarantine facilities have admitted 2,144 people so far of which 1,889 have tested negative.

2020-03-23The Fight to Curb a Health Scourge in India: Noise Pollution - Undark Magazine
The Fight to Curb a Health Scourge in India: Noise Pollution Republish A grassroots anti-noise movement aims to silence a serious urban health threat. Not everyone is on board. Top: An anti-honking sign hangs on the wall at the Earth Saviours Foundation just outside New Delhi. The foundation is active in caring for the homeless and several environmental causes, including noise pollution. Visual: Chris Berdik By Chris Berdik 03.23.2020 0 Comments Republish Print On a muggy September evening during festivities for the Hindu god Ganesh, Sumaira Abdulali darted through Mumbai’s crowded streets with a handheld sound meter. After 10 days of prayers and offerings, this was the night of Ganpati, when thousands of Ganesh idols are paraded down to the sea for ceremonial immersion. Abdulali, an environmental activist, hurried across a street swarming with auto rickshaws that honked and revved their engines. In the next block, a 10-foot elephant-headed Ganesh followed a platoon of dhol tasha drummers, clarinetists, and the tinny melody of a bulbul tarang, the Indian banjo, amplified by mounted loudspeakers. As they approached, the drummers drowned out every other sound — the crowd, the honking, and even the shrill whistles of the traffic police. Abdulali’s sound meter registered 115 decibels, as loud as a chainsaw and a danger to hearing in less than a minute.    This story was supported by the Pulitzer Center. This sound check, one of dozens that night, was part of Abdulali’s nearly two-decade war on noise pollution in Mumbai, a city that many researchers agree may be among the loudest examples of a global public health problem. In a rapidly growing and urbanizing world, more people are exposed to more noise, and multiple reports by the World Health Organization, most recently in 2018, indicate that rising decibel levels are among the top environmental risks to health. This is particularly true for the exploding, high-density megacities of the developing world, where the cacophony of urban growth is uniquely unrelenting. In addition to hearing, the reports suggest, noise harms the body more broadly, from sleep patterns to brain development to cardiovascular health. “We’ve known about some of these health impacts for decades,” said Richard Neitzel, an environmental health scientist and noise researcher at the University of Michigan’s School of Public Health, who notes that some activists have labeled noise the next secondhand smoke. Multiple reports by the WHO indicate that rising decibel levels are among the top environmental risks to health. “I think the key difference is tobacco smoke causes cancer and emphysema that kills you outright,” he said. “Noise effects are a little more indirect, but they can be just as lethal.” Abdulali, who has earned the nickname the Minister of Noise, and a grassroots network of other concerned citizens have steadily made the case that the sonic onslaught is not just a nuisance but also a serious health hazard. They have taken offenders to court to force new regulations. And when those regulations were largely ignored, they have kept up the pressure for enforcement, taking their noise meters to the streets and publicizing their findings on social media. But fighting noise has often meant fighting powerful interests, for whom loudness represents political potency, economic dynamism, and growth. Festival organizers and their political allies, for instance, have pushed back, calling the anti-noise campaigns extreme, arbitrary, and even biased against Hindu celebrations. At the Ganesh festival, Abdulali showed her sound reading to a nearby policeman. Rather than quiet the ear-popping performance, he promised to call in a special squad armed with their own sound meters. There was no time to verify this. The streets were crammed with countless other noisy processions that demanded Abdulali’s attention. Still, she counted the promise as progress. Back in 2003, when she started patrolling Mumbai, no cops would have joined her on the front lines. In fact, she recalled, “everyone told me that nobody can control noise in Mumbai, or anywhere in India, because we are a noisy people. We like noise.” But Abdulali knew better. Early on, she’d offered her cell phone number to be published as a noise-complaint hotline in the Times of India. “People were really, really disturbed. They would cry on the phone,” she said. “They would tell me, ‘we know you can’t help us, but at least you’re listening to us and not telling us that it’s us who are crazy for feeling so impacted.’” At the festival, Abdulali moved on to a phalanx of drummers wearing orange shirts and white Gandhi caps. Behind them, a man hammered on an empty metal oxygen canister hanging from a rolling wooden frame. The procession leader spotted Abdulali and motioned for the hammer-wielder to ease up, but not before she clocked him at 120 decibels. (Decibels measure sound on a logarithmic scale, meaning that every 10 decibels represent a 10-fold increase; a 60-decibel conversation has 10 times the acoustic intensity of a 50-decibel refrigerator hum.) The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recommends no more than eight hours a day at a weighted average of 85 decibels, about as loud as heavy traffic. The recommended exposure limit is halved for every three-decibel increase in volume, and it’s cumulative. So, even if someone works in a very quiet place, such as library, they will hit that danger threshold if they listen to 88-decibel music during their half-hour commute and later spend an hour and a half with friends at a local bar that hits 91 decibels. When sound reaches 120 decibels — like the oxygen-tank-clangs — it can cause almost instant hearing damage by destroying tiny hair cells in the inner ear, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. These hairs cells transform the vibrations of sound into electrical signals that travel to the to the brain, which interprets and sorts them into the sounds we hear. Over time, loud noise can kill enough of these critical cells to degrade hearing and cause the ringing in the ears known as tinnitus. ▲ Above, a snippet of everyday traffic noise in Mumbai. Incessant honking is one of the biggest noise offenders in India, and several recent studies have found high rates of hearing loss among the nation’s traffic police officers. Audio: Chris Berdik  Noise is also linked to chronic stress and sleep disruption, both of which are bad for heart health. One study published in the BMJ in 2013, for instance, examined the health records of some 6 million Americans 65 and older living near airports, and found that every 10 decibel rise in aircraft noise exposure correlated with a 3.5 percent rise in hospitalizations for heart trouble. Similarly, a 2014 analysis published in the journal Noise and Health examined 14 previous noise studies undertaken mostly in the United Kingdom and continental Europe, as well as Canada and Japan. That analysis found that across the various study locales, average heart-disease risk bumped up 8 percent for every 10-decibel uptick in highway noise. Between hearing loss and stress-induced health problems, the WHO estimated that noise pollution annually robs Western Europe’s 340 million people of at least 1 million disability-free years. “It has been well documented that noise exposure contributes to hearing loss, tinnitus, heart disease, stroke, anxiety, stress, depression, learning difficulties, job performance, sleep disorders, and reduced cognitive abilities,” declared the American Academy of Nursing in a 2016 position statement. “Noise is more than an annoyance; it is a public health hazard.” While most research on noise and health comes from Europe and North America, studies out of India and other developing countries are showing elevated rates of hearing loss in high-noise occupations. For instance, in 2015, the Indian Journal of Community Health published a study of 150 traffic police in the northern city of Jammu. Officers who had been on the job for at least three years showed about six times as much hearing loss as officers who had spent less time on the streets. Another study conducted in Vadodara, the third largest city in the northwest Indian state of Gujarat, found hearing loss in 80 out of the 88 traffic police tested. And a small 2018 study published by researchers in Chennai, the capital of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, checked the hearing of 30 auto-rickshaw drivers and diagnosed 23 with hearing loss. “It has been well documented that noise exposure contributes to hearing loss, tinnitus, heart disease, stroke, anxiety, stress, depression, learning difficulties, job performance, sleep disorders, and reduced cognitive abilities.” India’s physicians are increasingly trying to spread the word that that noise hurts health, said Sujata Rao, an ear, nose, and throat doctor and past president of the Association of Medical Consultants in Mumbai, a medical advocacy and education group. That message can be a tough sell during festival season. “In India, celebrations are equated with noise, and that association can’t be banished or washed off so easily,” said Rao. “But, slowly and surely, I think if the health effects of noise become more known, probably a change in mindset may occur.” To bolster awareness, doctors from the Indian state of Kerala created the National Initiative for Safe Sound (NISS) in 2013. “We were all noticing an increase in hearing loss,” said NISS co-founder, C. John Panicker, an ear, nose, and throat doctor and vice president of the Indian Medical Association. The initiative has since spread nationwide, hosting annual conferences, publishing booklets, and offering legal advice for people fighting noise pollution. Abdulali has worked with NISS to spread no-honking days throughout India. “I think everyone is concerned with their own health. It’s just that they haven’t quite made the link with noise,” she said. “And they haven’t made that link, because they’ve been misinformed. They’ve been told by the politicians who make this noise that it’s just for a little while, just a few days of the year. And you’re having fun. They’re not told that it accumulates.” A few miles from the main beach where the Ganesh idols would end up in the sea, the raucous parades passed a mosque with a white sign the size of a license plate reading: Silence Zone. The ongoing struggle over these silence zones — areas within 328 feet of schools, hospitals, courts, and places of worship where sound must be limited — tracks the history of noise-pollution activism in Mumbai. The city’s first anti-noise campaign began in the mid-1980s, with a group of Mumbai residents led by Yeshwant Oke, a pediatrican, and Saad Ali, a local businessman and Abdulali’s late uncle. Using local sound readings and a report from the WHO, the activists filed a series of public interest litigation cases against factories in residential areas, houses of worship blasting prayers from roof-mounted loudspeakers, and all-night discos during festival season. In the early 2000s, Abdulali, who was then a young mother looking for part-time work, volunteered to help. In 2000, a string of legal victories culminated with a court ordering the environmental ministry to create nationwide noise-pollution laws. The rules set day and night decibel limits by zone — including the silence zones. The use of loudspeakers was prohibited after 10 p.m. (In October 2002, the Indian government amended the rules to let local governments extend the cutoff to midnight on 15 days each year.) A sign marks the “silence zone” outside a mosque in Mumbai. Visual: Chris Berdik But the new rules didn’t address enforcement. How would people know where the silence zones began and ended? What agency would devote the resources to measure the noise? And who would go to court to punish violations that could, technically, lead to stiff fines or up to three months in jail? With no clear answers, the laws were mostly dead letters until Abdulali and allies began pushing the rules city-by-city. Armed with sound data, the activists returned to court to file petitions of non-compliance and contempt citations against authorities who failed to stop the racket. For instance, in 2009, Abdulali won a court order that the Mumbai city government needed to mark the silence zones with signs. She is now pushing for the zones’ boundaries to be put on an official city map to help shape urban planning, development, and licensing. Besides fighting noise in the courts, Abdulali has spent years trying to convince her fellow Mumbaikars that she is not anti-religion, anti-development, or anti-fun, but rather concerned about their wellbeing. Collaborating with charities, universities, and NGOs, she has provided free hearing screenings to traffic police and others, created anti-honking social media campaigns, and developed education initiatives such as a student-created public service announcement against firecrackers during festivals. Some officials have warmed to the activists’ efforts. Mumbai police spokesperson, Pranaya Ashok, said that every police station in the city has five to 10 noise meters, which they’ve used to confirm around 500 cases — out of 7,198 incidents — where noise levels have broken the law. A lot of the time, the noise stops before the police can arrive on the scene. Ashok also noted that quieting a metropolis like Mumbai is daunting. “Being a city which is constantly on the move and adding the volumes of traffic, the continuous construction activity, and the industrial units,” he said, “the ambient noise levels are already very high,” quite often over the legal limits. Still, Ashok insisted, “if a complaint comes to us, we definitely take action.” There is no denying that Mumbai is loud. A 2018 study by the Indian government’s National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI) analyzed noise readings from Mumbai and about two-dozen other cities in the state of Maharashtra. Mumbai’s average noise levels were well over the legal limits (for instance, 80 decibels, as loud as a vacuum cleaner, at night in residential areas). The city’s loudest spot, according to a sound meter mounted around the height of an adult by NEERI, was at the intersection outside the central train terminus. The intersection averaged 95 decibels — or power-tool territory. And it isn’t unusual for people to be hit with decibels in the 70s and 80s range throughout a typical day in the city. As in many global megacities, Mumbai’s noise is partly a side effect of explosive growth. Some 23 million people are estimated to live in the metropolitan area, up 5 million since the most recent census in 2011. The city’s infrastructure can’t keep up. The roads are overwhelmed with vehicles and pedestrians avoiding the sidewalk scrums. According to the lead author of NEERI’s 2018 noise study, environmental engineer Ritesh Vijay, the resulting stream of blaring horns is the worst noise offender. “Whether it’s a highway, or a city street, or an expressway, people honk like anything,” Vijay said by cellphone from Nagpur, another Maharashtra city featured in the report. In the background, a chorus of horns blared. “My God,” he yelled. “I should say, I’m sorry about all the honking.” Indian drivers consider honking to be “a means of self-expression,” said Abdulali, whether it’s happiness, boredom, or anger. “We’ve forgotten that the horn was originally a safety device,” she added. “And only a safety device.” Indian drivers consider honking to be “a means of self-expression,” whether it’s happiness, boredom, or anger. In addition to honking, Abdulali blames the omnipresent construction that often continues through the night, as well as a noise source that’s especially prevalent in Mumbai — the street festivals. Festival season starts after the summer monsoons and continues well into the spring with a series of Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Christian, and secular holidays, many observed over multiple days, and celebrated with parades, outdoor music, and firecrackers. Lowering the volume of these festivals is complicated, because many are intertwined with politics. The Ganesh celebrations, for example, dating to the late 19th century when a leader of India’s freedom struggle named Lokmanya Tilak transformed a fairly private observance into a major social gathering and carnival. Not only did the public observances promote Hindu solidarity, they also gave cover to meetings and fundraising to help undermine British colonial rule. Political parties and their neighborhood representatives have since taken charge of Ganesh festivities. The streets are lined with temporary pavilions — called pandals — that hold painted plaster idols, and right next to those are collection boxes for offerings by locals who pray for the god’s blessings. In fact, months before the festival, fundraisers go door to door collecting cash that supports an expansive festival economy — the local contractors who build and decorate the pandals, artists who create the idols, the musicians who march in the processions, and all the merchants needed to sustain 10 days of celebration. The politicians and festival organizers sometimes clash with noise pollution activists. Abdulali said she’s been shouted and cursed at when her sound metering shuts down a deafening musical performance or political rally. The thousands of politically-connected groups that organize the Ganesh celebrations, known as mandals, have made repeated appeals to state authorities that the silence zones should either be abolished or lawfully ignored on special nights such as Ganpati. Related Of Science, Sound, and Highway Noise Barriers “This is India, and our festivals are celebrated with a bang,” said one mandal leader in a 2017 interview for the Indian news website, Scroll.in. “How can we take out our processions if there are silence zones everywhere?” Reached by phone, Naresh Dahibawkar, the president of an organization representing some 10,000 mandals in Mumbai said his group has actually enforced quieter processions among its members in recent years. Still, he wants the restrictions on noise lifted for a few nights of the Ganesh festival, including Ganpati, to give Mumbai’s young dancers, actors, and musicians ample time on stage to show off their talents to the huge crowds. “It’s not because I want to violate the noise pollution rules,” he said. “But let us organize these entertainment programs. Our only intention is to provide a stage to children, to help them become artists.” Dahibawkar also echoed the criticism many have levied against Abdulali, which is that she is unfairly targets Ganpati and other Hindu festivals for her anti-noise campaigns. “I told her, that you people wake up only when Ganpati festival comes around,” he said. “Where are they during other festivals?” But in addition to metering non-religious noise violations such as car horns and the late-night construction of new Mumbai metro lines, Abdulali said she regularly tracks decibels during the Muslim festivals of Eid. And in December 2018, an angry crowd surrounded and threatened her at the Mahim Fair honoring the Sufi Muslim scholar and saint Makhdum Ali Mahimi. Police had to escort her to safety. For Abdulali, progress has come in fits and starts. On April 7, 2008, she had a success: The Mumbai traffic police joined her to mark the city’s — and the country’s — first no-honking day and stepped up related fines. In January 2018, the effort expanded into a Horn Vrat — literally a horn fast — supported by the Maharashtra transportation department and the auto rickshaw drivers’ union. For months, volunteers drove an auto rickshaw adorned with 150 bicycle horns and handed out flyers on the dangers of noise, which encouraged drivers to curb their honking (Ashok, the police spokesperson, said there are no firm data showing honking has improved in general). And as for the silence zones, more than 1,500 were recognized across Mumbai by 2017. But in August of that year, the Indian government amended the noise rules so that silence zones had to be designated by state governments, rather than local authorities. That change invalidated every silence zone in Mumbai (110 of them have since been reinstated). The setback had a silver lining, according to Abdulali, who credits the resulting uproar and public pressure for the government’s 2018 decision to ban DJs blasting Bollywood music in festival processions. And the ban led to quieter 2018 and 2019 festival seasons, according to her noise data, which has been used by the Bombay High Court and, she said, verified by the police and the Pollution Control Boards. The DJs went to court to fight the ban, represented by the Professional Audio and Lighting Association (PALA India). A final ruling is still pending. In a phone interview, the lawyer representing the DJs, Satish D. Talekar, called the ban “very arbitrary,” noting that traditional instruments are incredibly loud but left alone. The sound and lighting professionals rely on festivals to earn a living, he said, and now “their business has come to a standstill.” “Apart from that, there are many issues involved in it,” he continued, from personal liberty to “even the fundamental right of practicing religion.” Mumbai anti-noise activist Sumaira Abdulali checks the sound levels of a procession on the final night of the 10-day Ganesh festival, when thousands of idols are led by drums and other music down to the sea for ceremonial immersion. Visual: Chris Berdik Back at the Ganesh festival, shortly before 10 p.m., a truck blared music from roof-mounted loudspeakers at 115 decibels near Mumbai’s Shivaji Park. Abdulali alerted a police officer who told the driver to turn the music down. Still gripping her sound meter, Abdulali continued down the road. A man on a blue Yamaha motorcycle slowed beside her, his engine rumbling as he matched her pace. He looked over a couple times before leaning in, saying something, and speeding off. “He just said, thank you for your service,” Abdulali translated. Standing in an old colonial section of the city watching about half a dozen Ganesh idols lumber toward the sea, Abdulali said that this Ganpati was more subdued than usual. While the decibel levels of individual processions were still dangerous, the extreme loudness was less omnipresent than in year’s past. “Normally, this whole street would be filled with noise from DJs,” she said, not just from the idols but from speakers mounted on the balconies and verandas, creating a flood of sound that would echo off the hulking stone buildings. Noise improvements have also spread beyond Mumbai. A few hours away in Pune, a biology professor at the College of Engineering named Mahesh Shindikar and a platoon of students have fanned out across the city to take 24-hours of sound readings during Ganpati for the past 18 years. For the first few years, the 24-hour average hovered around 90 decibels before climbing to 114 decibels in 2013. It has fallen since then, and in 2019 it dipped down to 86 decibels. In Delhi, an activist named Ravi Kalra has led no-honking days and noise awareness campaigns for more than a decade. And in other cities, people have followed Abdulali’s lead and gone to court to get local enforcement of noise laws. For example, Mahesh Bedekar, an obstetrician and gynecologist who runs a hospital for mothers and newborns in the Mumbai suburb of Thane, found that noise from two nearby marriage halls was disrupting his patients’ sleep. When he complained, the local police took no action. So he filed public interest litigation to force silence-zone recognition for hospitals throughout Thane. During the Ganesh festival in Ulhasnagar, an hour east of Mumbai, drummers perform directly beneath a city billboard against noise pollution. Ulhasnagar is the noisiest urban area in the Indian state of Maharashtra, according to the Indian government’s National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI). Visual: Chris Berdik Further east in the city of Ulhasnagar, the noise-pollution enforcer is Sarita Khanchandani, a former science teacher. During her 18 years in the classroom, part of her curriculum was environmental conservation, but the disconnect between these lessons and India’s worsening pollution bothered her. “I started asking myself, what am I doing? I’m just imparting theoretical knowledge. There’s nothing practical about it,’” Khanchandani said. In 2011, she founded an environmental activism group called the Hirali Foundation, focusing on noise because she assumed it would be an easier fix than air or water pollution. “I thought it would be easier,” she recalled with a laugh. Ulhasnagar is the noisiest city in the state of Maharashtra according to the NEERI study, with weekday sound levels averaging 91.4 decibels. During festival season, Khanchandani races to the scene of noise complaints. She also tweets out every violation she finds and copies the local police. Having local noise watchdogs is critical, said Abdulali. It’s relatively easy to put up a silence-zone sign or distribute no-honking pamphlets, but real enforcement takes commitment. “The rhetoric is great. But, it’s only where people are actually on the ground, speaking up, taking action, and forcing it to happen that it’s working,” she said. “Like Sarita in Ulhasnagar, if she wasn’t out there, then all the court orders in the world would not have done anything.” As the night of Ganpati moved along, Abdulali followed the processions to the beach, noting every reading from her meter in a ledger and broadcasting some on Twitter. Ganpati is one of the nights each year where Mumbai authorities allow loudspeakers until midnight. As the clock ticked past 12, the idols continued their march, but the music faded. Not everywhere. Fifteen minutes after the deadline, Abdulali sound checked a procession where the drummers were still going strong. She showed the reading to a group of police, who approached the procession. The drummers delivered a percussive burst before going silent. There was one final stop — the grandstands near the point on the beach where the Ganesh idols would float in the sea. Here, politicians routinely flout the noise laws, shouting words of welcome and celebration through loudspeakers well past midnight. She measured one group pushing 100 decibels and told a nearby cop. “What can I do about it?” he shrugged. “Go and tell the senior officer.” The Mumbai police had a temporary headquarters on the beach, its interior hidden behind a wall lit by floodlights and plastered with a billboard collage of police photos captioned: “Your Safety. Our Responsibility.” Several cops milled around a doorway draped with garlands of marigolds. Abdulali spoke briefly with one of the cops and then headed inside. About five minutes later, she emerged with several policemen, including the chief, with his three-star epaulets. His holstered 9mm pistol was another mark of high rank in a police force where most are not authorized to carry firearms. The others brandished long night sticks, and as the group marched back to the procession route, one of the officers broke off to swat the balloons of an unlicensed vendor, popping the lot.

The police headquarters had radioed ahead to the officers by the grandstands to pull the plug on the politicians. Soon the loudspeakers were silent. Satisfied that his orders had been obeyed, the chief took his leave. But another high-ranking officer soon appeared. He wore two-star epaulets, and instead of a pistol, he was armed with a noise meter. He approached Abdulali and spoke with an aggrieved air, repeatedly holding up his sound meter for her acknowledgment. The officer wanted to show how her how diligent his team had been in their noise duties. (In previous years, she has filed or threatened contempt citations against police.) Abdulali listened politely, but stone-faced, with tired eyes and sweat beading up on her forehead. A few more cops joined the presentation, including a couple others with sound meters, one of which they connected to a handheld printer that spat out the noise readings taken that night. After the group broke up, Abdulali said she still isn’t sure how to measure progress. “The truth is, I don’t know,” she said. “But the fact that these police are carrying noise meters at all — no matter what they actually do with them — and the fact that people see me and my noise meter and know what it’s about, I mean, I never thought this day would come.” Then, she laughed. “Now, if only we could do the same for honking.” Chris Berdik is a freelance science and education journalist in Milton, Massachusetts.

On a muggy September evening during festivities for the Hindu god Ganesh, Sumaira Abdulali darted through Mumbai’s crowded streets with a handheld sound meter. After 10 days of prayers and offerings, this was the night of Ganpati, when thousands of Ganesh idols are paraded down to the sea for ceremonial immersion. Abdulali, an environmental activist, hurried across a street swarming with auto rickshaws that honked and revved their engines. In the next block, a 10-foot elephant-headed Ganesh followed a platoon of dhol tasha drummers, clarinetists, and the tinny melody of a bulbul tarang, the Indian banjo, amplified by mounted loudspeakers. As they approached, the drummers drowned out every other sound — the crowd, the honking, and even the shrill whistles of the traffic police. Abdulali’s sound meter registered 115 decibels, as loud as a chainsaw and a danger to hearing in less than a minute. This sound check, one of dozens that night, was part of Abdulali’s nearly two-decade war on noise pollution in Mumbai, a city that many researchers agree may be among the loudest examples of a global public health problem. In a rapidly growing and urbanizing world, more people are exposed to more noise, and multiple reports by the World Health Organization, most recently in 2018, indicate that rising decibel levels are among the top environmental risks to health.

The recommended exposure limit is halved for every three-decibel increase in volume, and it’s cumulative. So, even if someone works in a very quiet place, such as library, they will hit that danger threshold if they listen to 88-decibel music during their half-hour commute and later spend an hour and a half with friends at a local bar that hits 91 decibels. When sound reaches 120 decibels — like the oxygen-tank-clangs — it can cause almost instant hearing damage by destroying tiny hair cells in the inner ear, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. These hairs cells transform the vibrations of sound into electrical signals that travel to the to the brain, which interprets and sorts them into the sounds we hear. Over time, loud noise can kill enough of these critical cells to degrade hearing and cause the ringing in the ears known as tinnitus. Noise is also linked to chronic stress and sleep disruption, both of which are bad for heart health. One study published in the BMJ in 2013, for instance, examined the health records of some 6 million Americans 65 and older living near airports, and found that every 10 decibel rise in aircraft noise exposure correlated with a 3.5 percent rise in hospitalizations for heart trouble. Similarly, a 2014 analysis published in the journal Noise and Health examined 14 previous noise studies undertaken mostly in the United Kingdom and continental Europe, as well as Canada and Japan. That analysis found that across the various study locales, average heart-disease risk bumped up 8 percent for every 10-decibel uptick in highway noise. Between hearing loss and stress-induced health problems, the WHO estimated that noise pollution annually robs Western Europe’s 340 million people of at least 1 million disability-free years. “It has been well documented that noise exposure contributes to hearing loss, tinnitus, heart disease, stroke, anxiety, stress, depression, learning difficulties, job performance, sleep disorders, and reduced cognitive abilities,” declared the American Academy of Nursing in a 2016 position statement. “Noise is more than an annoyance; it is a public health hazard.” While most research on noise and health comes from Europe and North America, studies out of India and other developing countries are showing elevated rates of hearing loss in high-noise occupations. For instance, in 2015, the Indian Journal of Community Health published a study of 150 traffic police in the northern city of Jammu. Officers who had been on the job for at least three years showed about six times as much hearing loss as officers who had spent less time on the streets. Another study conducted in Vadodara, the third largest city in the northwest Indian state of Gujarat, found hearing loss in 80 out of the 88 traffic police tested. And a small 2018 study published by researchers in Chennai, the capital of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, checked the hearing of 30 auto-rickshaw drivers and diagnosed 23 with hearing loss. India’s physicians are increasingly trying to spread the word that that noise hurts health, said Sujata Rao, an ear, nose, and throat doctor and past president of the Association of Medical Consultants in Mumbai, a medical advocacy and education group. That message can be a tough sell during festival season. “In India, celebrations are equated with noise, and that association can’t be banished or washed off so easily,” said Rao. “But, slowly and surely, I think if the health effects of noise become more known, probably a change in mindset may occur.” To bolster awareness, doctors from the Indian state of Kerala created the National Initiative for Safe Sound (NISS) in 2013. “We were all noticing an increase in hearing loss,” said NISS co-founder, C. John Panicker, an ear, nose, and throat doctor and vice president of the Indian Medical Association. The initiative has since spread nationwide, hosting annual conferences, publishing booklets, and offering legal advice for people fighting noise pollution. Abdulali has worked with NISS to spread no-honking days throughout India. “I think everyone is concerned with their own health. It’s just that they haven’t quite made the link with noise,” she said. “And they haven’t made that link, because they’ve been misinformed. They’ve been told by the politicians who make this noise that it’s just for a little while, just a few days of the year. And you’re having fun. They’re not told that it accumulates.” A few miles from the main beach where the Ganesh idols would end up in the sea, the raucous parades passed a mosque with a white sign the size of a license plate reading: Silence Zone. The ongoing struggle over these silence zones — areas within 328 feet of schools, hospitals, courts, and places of worship where sound must be limited — tracks the history of noise-pollution activism in Mumbai. The city’s first anti-noise campaign began in the mid-1980s, with a group of Mumbai residents led by Yeshwant Oke, a pediatrican, and Saad Ali, a local businessman and Abdulali’s late uncle. Using local sound readings and a report from the WHO, the activists filed a series of public interest litigation cases against factories in residential areas, houses of worship blasting prayers from roof-mounted loudspeakers, and all-night discos during festival season. In the early 2000s, Abdulali, who was then a young mother looking for part-time work, volunteered to help. In 2000, a string of legal victories culminated with a court ordering the environmental ministry to create nationwide noise-pollution laws. The rules set day and night decibel limits by zone — including the silence zones. The use of loudspeakers was prohibited after 10 p.m. (In October 2002, the Indian government amended the rules to let local governments extend the cutoff to midnight on 15 days each year.) A sign marks the “silence zone” outside a mosque in Mumbai. Image by Chris Berdik. India, undated. But the new rules didn’t address enforcement. How would people know where the silence zones began and ended? What agency would devote the resources to measure the noise? And who would go to court to punish violations that could, technically, lead to stiff fines or up to three months in jail? With no clear answers, the laws were mostly dead letters until Abdulali and allies began pushing the rules city-by-city. Armed with sound data, the activists returned to court to file petitions of non-compliance and contempt citations against authorities who failed to stop the racket. For instance, in 2009, Abdulali won a court order that the Mumbai city government needed to mark the silence zones with signs. She is now pushing for the zones’ boundaries to be put on an official city map to help shape urban planning, development, and licensing. Besides fighting noise in the courts, Abdulali has spent years trying to convince her fellow Mumbaikars that she is not anti-religion, anti-development, or anti-fun, but rather concerned about their wellbeing. Collaborating with charities, universities, and NGOs, she has provided free hearing screenings to traffic police and others, created anti-honking social media campaigns, and developed education initiatives such as a student-created public service announcement against firecrackers during festivals. Some officials have warmed to the activists’ efforts. Mumbai police spokesperson, Pranaya Ashok, said that every police station in the city has five to 10 noise meters, which they’ve used to confirm around 500 cases — out of 7,198 incidents — where noise levels have broken the law. A lot of the time, the noise stops before the police can arrive on the scene. Ashok also noted that quieting a metropolis like Mumbai is daunting. “Being a city which is constantly on the move and adding the volumes of traffic, the continuous construction activity, and the industrial units,” he said, “the ambient noise levels are already very high,” quite often over the legal limits. Still, Ashok insisted, “if a complaint comes to us, we definitely take action.” There is no denying that Mumbai is loud. A 2018 study by the Indian government’s National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI) analyzed noise readings from Mumbai and about two-dozen other cities in the state of Maharashtra. Mumbai’s average noise levels were well over the legal limits (for instance, 80 decibels, as loud as a vacuum cleaner, at night in residential areas). The city’s loudest spot, according to a sound meter mounted around the height of an adult by NEERI, was at the intersection outside the central train terminus. The intersection averaged 95 decibels — or power-tool territory. And it isn’t unusual for people to be hit with decibels in the 70s and 80s range throughout a typical day in the city. As in many global megacities, Mumbai’s noise is partly a side effect of explosive growth. Some 23 million people are estimated to live in the metropolitan area, up 5 million since the most recent census in 2011. The city’s infrastructure can’t keep up. The roads are overwhelmed with vehicles and pedestrians avoiding the sidewalk scrums. According to the lead author of NEERI’s 2018 noise study, environmental engineer Ritesh Vijay, the resulting stream of blaring horns is the worst noise offender. “Whether it’s a highway, or a city street, or an expressway, people honk like anything,” Vijay said by cellphone from Nagpur, another Maharashtra city featured in the report. In the background, a chorus of horns blared. “My God,” he yelled. “I should say, I’m sorry about all the honking.” Indian drivers consider honking to be “a means of self-expression,” said Abdulali, whether it’s happiness, boredom, or anger. “We’ve forgotten that the horn was originally a safety device,” she added. “And only a safety device.” In addition to honking, Abdulali blames the omnipresent construction that often continues through the night, as well as a noise source that’s especially prevalent in Mumbai — the street festivals. Festival season starts after the summer monsoons and continues well into the spring with a series of Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Christian, and secular holidays, many observed over multiple days, and celebrated with parades, outdoor music, and firecrackers. Lowering the volume of these festivals is complicated, because many are intertwined with politics. The Ganesh celebrations, for example, dating to the late 19th century when a leader of India’s freedom struggle named Lokmanya Tilak transformed a fairly private observance into a major social gathering and carnival. Not only did the public observances promote Hindu solidarity, they also gave cover to meetings and fundraising to help undermine British colonial rule. Political parties and their neighborhood representatives have since taken charge of Ganesh festivities. The streets are lined with temporary pavilions — called pandals — that hold painted plaster idols, and right next to those are collection boxes for offerings by locals who pray for the god’s blessings. In fact, months before the festival, fundraisers go door to door collecting cash that supports an expansive festival economy — the local contractors who build and decorate the pandals, artists who create the idols, the musicians who march in the processions, and all the merchants needed to sustain 10 days of celebration. The politicians and festival organizers sometimes clash with noise pollution activists. Abdulali said she’s been shouted and cursed at when her sound metering shuts down a deafening musical performance or political rally. The thousands of politically-connected groups that organize the Ganesh celebrations, known as mandals, have made repeated appeals to state authorities that the silence zones should either be abolished or lawfully ignored on special nights such as Ganpati. “This is India, and our festivals are celebrated with a bang,” said one mandal leader in a 2017 interview for the Indian news website, Scroll.in. “How can we take out our processions if there are silence zones everywhere?” Reached by phone, Naresh Dahibawkar, the president of an organization representing some 10,000 mandals in Mumbai said his group has actually enforced quieter processions among its members in recent years. Still, he wants the restrictions on noise lifted for a few nights of the Ganesh festival, including Ganpati, to give Mumbai’s young dancers, actors, and musicians ample time on stage to show off their talents to the huge crowds. “It’s not because I want to violate the noise pollution rules,” he said. “But let us organize these entertainment programs. Our only intention is to provide a stage to children, to help them become artists.” Dahibawkar also echoed the criticism many have levied against Abdulali, which is that she is unfairly targets Ganpati and other Hindu festivals for her anti-noise campaigns. “I told her, that you people wake up only when Ganpati festival comes around,” he said. “Where are they during other festivals?” But in addition to metering non-religious noise violations such as car horns and the late-night construction of new Mumbai metro lines, Abdulali said she regularly tracks decibels during the Muslim festivals of Eid. And in December 2018, an angry crowd surrounded and threatened her at the Mahim Fair honoring the Sufi Muslim scholar and saint Makhdum Ali Mahimi. Police had to escort her to safety. For Abdulali, progress has come in fits and starts. On April 7, 2008, she had a success: The Mumbai traffic police joined her to mark the city’s — and the country’s — first no-honking day and stepped up related fines. In January 2018, the effort expanded into a Horn Vrat — literally a horn fast — supported by the Maharashtra transportation department and the auto rickshaw drivers’ union. For months, volunteers drove an auto rickshaw adorned with 150 bicycle horns and handed out flyers on the dangers of noise, which encouraged drivers to curb their honking (Ashok, the police spokesperson, said there are no firm data showing honking has improved in general). And as for the silence zones, more than 1,500 were recognized across Mumbai by 2017. But in August of that year, the Indian government amended the noise rules so that silence zones had to be designated by state governments, rather than local authorities. That change invalidated every silence zone in Mumbai (110 of them have since been reinstated). The setback had a silver lining, according to Abdulali, who credits the resulting uproar and public pressure for the government’s 2018 decision to ban DJs blasting Bollywood music in festival processions. And the ban led to quieter 2018 and 2019 festival seasons, according to her noise data, which has been used by the Bombay High Court and, she said, verified by the police and the Pollution Control Boards. The DJs went to court to fight the ban, represented by the Professional Audio and Lighting Association (PALA India). A final ruling is still pending. In a phone interview, the lawyer representing the DJs, Satish D. Talekar, called the ban “very arbitrary,” noting that traditional instruments are incredibly loud but left alone. The sound and lighting professionals rely on festivals to earn a living, he said, and now “their business has come to a standstill.” “Apart from that, there are many issues involved in it,” he continued, from personal liberty to “even the fundamental right of practicing religion.” Mumbai anti-noise activist Sumaira Abdulali checks the sound levels of a procession on the final night of the 10-day Ganesh festival, when thousands of idols are led by drums and other music down to the sea for ceremonial immersion. Image by Chris Berdik. India, undated. Back at the Ganesh festival, shortly before 10 p.m., a truck blared music from roof-mounted loudspeakers at 115 decibels near Mumbai’s Shivaji Park. Abdulali alerted a police officer who told the driver to turn the music down. Still gripping her sound meter, Abdulali continued down the road. A man on a blue Yamaha motorcycle slowed beside her, his engine rumbling as he matched her pace. He looked over a couple times before leaning in, saying something, and speeding off. “He just said, thank you for your service,” Abdulali translated. Standing in an old colonial section of the city watching about half a dozen Ganesh idols lumber toward the sea, Abdulali said that this Ganpati was more subdued than usual. While the decibel levels of individual processions were still dangerous, the extreme loudness was less omnipresent than in year’s past. “Normally, this whole street would be filled with noise from DJs,” she said, not just from the idols but from speakers mounted on the balconies and verandas, creating a flood of sound that would echo off the hulking stone buildings. Noise improvements have also spread beyond Mumbai. A few hours away in Pune, a biology professor at the College of Engineering named Mahesh Shindikar and a platoon of students have fanned out across the city to take 24-hours of sound readings during Ganpati for the past 18 years. For the first few years, the 24-hour average hovered around 90 decibels before climbing to 114 decibels in 2013. It has fallen since then, and in 2019 it dipped down to 86 decibels. In Delhi, an activist named Ravi Kalra has led no-honking days and noise awareness campaigns for more than a decade. And in other cities, people have followed Abdulali’s lead and gone to court to get local enforcement of noise laws. For example, Mahesh Bedekar, an obstetrician and gynecologist who runs a hospital for mothers and newborns in the Mumbai suburb of Thane, found that noise from two nearby marriage halls was disrupting his patients’ sleep. When he complained, the local police took no action. So he filed public interest litigation to force silence-zone recognition for hospitals throughout Thane. Further east in the city of Ulhasnagar, the noise-pollution enforcer is Sarita Khanchandani, a former science teacher. During her 18 years in the classroom, part of her curriculum was environmental conservation, but the disconnect between these lessons and India’s worsening pollution bothered her. “I started asking myself, what am I doing? I’m just imparting theoretical knowledge. There’s nothing practical about it,’” Khanchandani said. In 2011, she founded an environmental activism group called the Hirali Foundation, focusing on noise because she assumed it would be an easier fix than air or water pollution. “I thought it would be easier,” she recalled with a laugh. Ulhasnagar is the noisiest city in the state of Maharashtra according to the NEERI study, with weekday sound levels averaging 91.4 decibels. During festival season, Khanchandani races to the scene of noise complaints. She also tweets out every violation she finds and copies the local police. Having local noise watchdogs is critical, said Abdulali. It’s relatively easy to put up a silence-zone sign or distribute no-honking pamphlets, but real enforcement takes commitment. “The rhetoric is great. But, it’s only where people are actually on the ground, speaking up, taking action, and forcing it to happen that it’s working,” she said. “Like Sarita in Ulhasnagar, if she wasn’t out there, then all the court orders in the world would not have done anything.” As the night of Ganpati moved along, Abdulali followed the processions to the beach, noting every reading from her meter in a ledger and broadcasting some on Twitter. Ganpati is one of the nights each year where Mumbai authorities allow loudspeakers until midnight. As the clock ticked past 12, the idols continued their march, but the music faded. Not everywhere. Fifteen minutes after the deadline, Abdulali sound checked a procession where the drummers were still going strong. She showed the reading to a group of police, who approached the procession. The drummers delivered a percussive burst before going silent. There was one final stop — the grandstands near the point on the beach where the Ganesh idols would float in the sea. Here, politicians routinely flout the noise laws, shouting words of welcome and celebration through loudspeakers well past midnight. She measured one group pushing 100 decibels and told a nearby cop. “What can I do about it?” he shrugged. “Go and tell the senior officer.” The Mumbai police had a temporary headquarters on the beach, its interior hidden behind a wall lit by floodlights and plastered with a billboard collage of police photos captioned: “Your Safety. Our Responsibility.” Several cops milled around a doorway draped with garlands of marigolds. Abdulali spoke briefly with one of the cops and then headed inside. About five minutes later, she emerged with several policemen, including the chief, with his three-star epaulets. His holstered 9mm pistol was another mark of high rank in a police force where most are not authorized to carry firearms. The others brandished long night sticks, and as the group marched back to the procession route, one of the officers broke off to swat the balloons of an unlicensed vendor, popping the lot. The police headquarters had radioed ahead to the officers by the grandstands to pull the plug on the politicians. Soon the loudspeakers were silent. Satisfied that his orders had been obeyed, the chief took his leave. But another high-ranking officer soon appeared. He wore two-star epaulets, and instead of a pistol, he was armed with a noise meter. He approached Abdulali and spoke with an aggrieved air, repeatedly holding up his sound meter for her acknowledgment. The officer wanted to show how her how diligent his team had been in their noise duties. (In previous years, she has filed or threatened contempt citations against police.) Abdulali listened politely, but stone-faced, with tired eyes and sweat beading up on her forehead. A few more cops joined the presentation, including a couple others with sound meters, one of which they connected to a handheld printer that spat out the noise readings taken that night. After the group broke up, Abdulali said she still isn’t sure how to measure progress. “The truth is, I don’t know,” she said. “But the fact that these police are carrying noise meters at all — no matter what they actually do with them — and the fact that people see me and my noise meter and know what it’s about, I mean, I never thought this day would come.” Then, she laughed. “Now, if only we could do the same for honking.” This Story is a part of: Noise Pollution and Power in Mumbai See more in this project Author Chris Berdik Grantee Chris Berdik is a freelance science journalist, and a former staff editor at The Atlantic and Mother Jones.

Mumbai: 15 who escaped quarantine camp brought back, stamped flyers breaking ‘home-quarantine’ warnedTop Searches:Coronavirus cases in MumbaiCoronavirus in MumbaiCoronavirus in IndiaMaharashtra Coronavirus Helpline NumberCoronavirus Mumbai NewsMumbai: 15 who escaped quarantine camp brought back, stamped flyers breaking ‘home-quarantine’ warnedV Narayan | TNN | Updated: Mar 23, 2020, 06:16 ISTRepresentative ImageMUMBAI: Fifteen men who ran out of the quarantine facility after landing in the city from Dubai were tracked down and taken back on Sunday. The men, who hail from Punjab, had been stamped for quarantine. They left the quarantine camp, boarded a local train from Andheri and travelled to Khar when they were tracked. The state ministry has directed concerned agencies to keep a track of all the flyers stamped with self-quarantine, and to check whether they were following instructions. A team comprising of the Mumbai collector, civic officials and police were kept on alert after learning that 15 people had been reported missing from the quarantine facility on Sunday. Senior inspector Gajanan Kabdule said, “We received information about the suspected runaways in Khar. Our team rushed to the railway station and caught the 15 men around 12.30pm, who were then handed over to civic officials and the collector, who took them back. They were found with the quarantine stamps.” Five students with home quarantine stamps were found in the Tarapur Atomic Power Station (TAPS) and Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) housing complexes in Palghar. District administration was alerted by locals, who then warned the students. The five had returned from USA, Paris, Philippines, Netherlands and UK, approximately five days ago. Two were TAPS residents, and three BARC residents. They had not reported to the district administration after returning to Mumbai. Taluka health officer Dr Abhijit Khandare said that when information about the students was received, a team reached their homes and explained to them why they needed to be in self-quarantine for 14 days. No police case has been filed against them, and they were warned to follow the instructions strictly. Their family members were also instructed not to report to work till their quarantine period ended. The buildings in which the five reside will be fumigated and sanitized. Those who interacted with the students were also asked to look out for symptoms. The district administration is drawing up a list of people, including students, who have arrived from outside India. BJP corporator from Ulhasnagar, Meena Sonde, noticed a few people breaking the ‘Janata curfew’ in her area on Sunday. As a punishment, she made them do sit-ups. Sonde said she was at home when through CCTV cameras installed in her area, she saw people roaming around in the slum area without any reason. She went there and punished them, and told them to stay inside. Talking to TOI, Sonde said, “As public representatives it is our social responsibility to help the administration.” Sonde’s punishment video went viral on social media, and several people were seen appreciating her actions. Some also criticized her, stating that she should not take the law into her own hands. The MRA Marg police on Sunday morning checked on 23 people who had arrived from Dubai recently and were staying at a guest house on Modi Street in Fort. The police said they had not been detected with coronavirus, and they were asked to remain in home quarantine for 14 days. A police team will keep a tab on them. On Saturday, three people with home quarantine stamps were found roaming in Sahar Village. They had returned from Dubai recently. “Locals who noticed them alerted the cops. All of them were asked to complete the two weeks of self-quarantine, and warned that if they did not do so, forced quarantine action would be taken against them,” said an officer from the Sahar police station. City police spokesperson, deputy police commissioner Pranay Ashok said that the BMC was maintaining a list of all incoming flyers at the Mumbai airport. “We are providing support to the BMC, who has asked us to keep a regular check on incoming flyers. The flyers database is used by police personnel to check whether quarantine instructions are being followed,” said Ashok. Those not following the instructions will be sent to forced quarantine. On Sunday around 12.40pm, a flight carrying 240 passengers from Europe landed in Mumbai. All the flyers were screened. Another set of 212 passengers from the Gulf were to land at 7.45pm on Sunday.

BMC checking pneumonia, respiratory distress updatesTop Searches:Coronavirus cases in MumbaiCoronavirus in MumbaiCoronavirus in IndiaMaharashtra Coronavirus Helpline NumberCoronavirus Mumbai NewsBMC checking pneumonia, respiratory distress updatesMalathy Iyer & Sujit Mahamulkar | TNN | Mar 22, 2020, 06:02 ISTPicture used for representational purpose onlyMUMBAI: While the number of Covid-19 cases in Maharashtra rose to 64 on Saturday, the Indian Council for Medical Research too said there is still no evidence of community level transmission. “We don’t have travel details of these patients so far,” said BMC’s deputy health officer Dr Daksha Shah. Though cases in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region are 29, the BMC update mentioned the city’s total cases at 30 (including a death registered on March 17), adding to the list one Yavatmal resident who was tested in Kasturba Hospital on Friday. The BMC has begun maintaining a close watch on state disease surveillance data, which has daily updates from various hospitals on cases of viral pneumonia and respiratory distress. “We haven’t noticed any general increase in that registry but are keeping watch,” said Dr Shah. The state update said the patient from Yavatmal, admitted in Mumbai, has a travel history to Congo. “A Kalyan-based patient is the brother of an Ulhasnagar-based young woman found positive two days back after returning from Dubai. He too had visited Dubai with his sister,” a state official said. A Pune man who tested positive is a 25-year-old who had travelled to England and Ireland. Referring to a 41-year-old woman who tested positive in Pune without any international travel history, the official added an in-depth epidemiological investigation is on. Earlier in the day, public health minister Rajesh Tope said, “I have updated information on cases to party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar who spoke to the Union health minister about allowing to make private hospital labs functional for coronavirus tests. The Union health minister is also positive in this regard.” The health minister denied any shortage of testing kits. “As of today, we have seven labs and intend to make a total 13-15 labs functional as a precautionary measure in Dhule, Sangli and Aurangabad in case we need to test large-scale in future. The state has placed an order for equipment so labs could be functional immediately.” “The state has assured the Union government it is ready to set up test facilities at all hospitals attached to government colleges and is ready to follow all ICMR,” Tope said.

2020-03-22Maha records 12 new cases, total count mount to 64 - Daily Pioneer
Maha records 12 new cases, total count mount to 64 Sunday, 22 March 2020 | TN RAGHUNATHA | Mumbai Share TT TT 0 Maha records 12 new cases, total count mount to 64 Sunday, 22 March 2020 | TN RAGHUNATHA | Mumbai Maharashtra, which has borne the maximum brunt of Coronavirus in the country, witnessed a sharp jump in the number of confirmed cases on Saturday, as twelve more persons tested positive for Covid-19 in a single day, taking the total number of infected cases to 64 in the state. Apart from one death,  Maharashtra has so far recorded 25 per cent of the total 258 confirmed Coronavirus cases reported from various parts  of the country. Of the 12 fresh positive cases recorded in Maharashtra on Saturday, Mumbai accounted for a maximum of 8, while Pune—which is one of the worst-affected cities in the state – reported two cases. There was one confirmed case each in Yavmatmal and Kalyan.   Shockingly enough, one of the eight newly infected patients in Mumbai was working at the city airport, in an indication of the fact he might have contracted the virus owing to his exposure to people arriving in Mumbai from international destinations. From among the remaining infected cases in Mumbai, six persons had a history of international travel, while one person had travelled to Gujarat. In Pune, a 41-year-old woman with no history of international travel tested positive for Coronavirus, while 25-year man who had travelled to England and Ireland is the second infected case. The person from Kalyan, who has tested positive for Covid-19, is the brother of a young woman from Ulhasnagar with history of travel to Dubai. The infected patient from Yavatmal, who has been admitted to a Mumbai hospital, has a history of travel to Congo in Central Africa. With the 12 fresh cases, the total number of confirmed Covid-19 rose to 64 in the state. Mumbai accounted for a maximum of 19 cases, while Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad reported 12 and 11 cases respectively. The break-up of positive Coronavirus cases elsewhere in the state is: Nagpur-4, Yavatmal-4, Kalyan-4, Navi Mumbai-3, Ahmednagar-2, Panvel-1, Thane-1, Ulhasnagar-1 Aurangabad-1 and Ratnagiri-1. Of the patients who had tested positive for Covid-19 earlier, a 63-year-old disease-infected had died at the Kasurba Hospital on March 17    Talking to media persons on the current Coronavirus situation in Maharashtra, State Health Minister Rajesh Tope said: “In all, 285 persons with history of international travel are under surveillance for symptoms of Coronavirus.  Till today, 1861 people have arrived in the state from Covid-hit countries” “Since January 18, we had quarantined 1582 people with symptoms like fever, cold and cough in various hospitals in the state. Of the quarantined people, 1206 have been tested negative for Coronavirus, while 64 persons have tested for the pandemic,” Tope said. Amid reports of people deserting their pet animals in fear of their contracting Coronavirus from them, Tope said: “Through our helplines, we are receiving complaints of people deserting their pet animals after apprehending that they might contract the Covid-19.  But, we have so far no examples of any one contracting the pandemic from pet animals. Hence, there is no need for people to desert their animals.      Meanwhile, the Opposition BJP threw its full weight behind the Uddhav Thackeray government in combating the pandemic. Talking to media persons, former chief minister and the current leader of the Opposition in the State Assembly Devendra Fadnavis said: “Coronavirus is a national disaster. The entire country is fighting the pandemic. The State government is taking certain measures to tackle Covid-19. We are fully with the Uddhav Thackeray government in all its efforts. Making a case for the Maharashtra government creating daily wage work for those who have been unemployed because of the pandemic, Fadnavis said: “The trade and all other activities have come to a standstill in Mumbai,Pune, Pimpri-Chinchwad and Nagpur.  In Mumbai Metropolitan Region itself, there are 50 lakh workers. The state government maintains a fund for the construction workers. The State government should use a fund of Rs 4,000 crore lying in the construction workers cess account to give some allowance these workers” “The State government should also raise funds from voluntary organisations for creating jobs and providing allowances for jobless in the state,” the senior BJP leader said, while urging the government to draw up a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) to deal with the problems faced by the unemployed people in the state. Fadnavis also requested the people to take steps to ensure against the migrants to their native places in view of the coronavirus outbreak. “At railway stations,we are witnessing huge rush of migrants wanting to return to their native villages. The government has to take measures against reverse migration. The authorities have to also triple the thermal screening facilities at the railway stations to ensure against the community spread of the pandemic”. Meanwhile, Tope advised people to respond to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's call and observe the 'Janata Curfew' on Sunday, March 22, by remaining indoors. Pune Divisional Commissioner Deepak Mhaisekar also urged the people to extend 100 per cent support to the “Janata Curfew” called by Prime Minister Narendra Modi  from 7 am to 9 pm on Sunday.

"63 years old Male patient admitted at a private hospital on 19.03.2020. The patient expired on 21.03.2020 at 11:03 pm due to following- Patient, positive case of COVID-19, had a chronic history of diabetes, high blood pressure and ischemic heart disease and he developed acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), leading to death," the BMC's health department said in a statement.  This comes as 10 more positive cases of coronavirus were confirmed on Sunday, taking the number of total infections in the state to 74. "10 more people (6-Mumbai and 4-Pune) test positive for coronavirus in Maharashtra. Total number of positive cases in the state rises to 74," the state's health department said.  According to the state's health minister Rajesh Tope, most cases have been reported from Mumbai where 25 people have been tested positive. Both of the deaths from the state have been reported from the city.  Pune has recorded 15 cases and Pimpri Chinchwad in extended Pune metropolitan area has 12 positive cases.  Other cases have been reported from Nagpur (4), Yavatmal (4), Kalyan (4), Navi Mumbai (3) and Ahmednagar (2). One case each has been reported from Panvel, Thane, Ulhasnagar, Aurangabad and Ratnagiri. Earlier on Sunday, the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare said the number of total cases in the country has risen to 324.  The country is currently under one-day unofficial lockdown after a 14-hour 'Janata Curfew' called by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.  Maharashtra has taken various measures to impose social distancing in the state. The government has curtailed public transport in Mumbai with restrictions on the public against using local trains, considered the lifeline of the city. Only the government personnel engaged in the provision of essential services would be allowed to travel by local trains on Sunday, a restriction which will continue throughout the next week.  Most of the establishments in the city, barring food joints and pharmacies, will also be closed following an order by the Mumbai Municipal Commissioner.  BMC Commissioner Pravin Pardeshi on Friday ordered the immediate closure of schools, cinema halls, malls, gyms, swimming pools, pubs, discotheques, amusement parks, and banned public functions.  Restaurants, dhabas, cafes and other eateries can continue to operate if they can self-impose 50% customer capacity and maintain a distance of 3 feet between two customers, the order by BMC Commissioner said. All "private, corporate establishments" are to be shut down, the order said. The order has exempted establishments or firms providing essential services such as drinking water, electricity, banking, sewerage, healthcare, media, port, telecom, vendors of food, groceries and vegetables, petrol pumps, IT services, data centres, e-commerce of essential items including food, among others.   Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope on Saturday appealed to all to practice social distancing to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Janata Curfew: Unprecedented shutdown keeps Mumbaikars indoors, travails to continue as supplies run shortTop Searches:Coronavirus cases in MumbaiCoronavirus in MumbaiCoronavirus in IndiaMaharashtra Coronavirus Helpline NumberCoronavirus Mumbai NewsJanata Curfew: Unprecedented shutdown keeps Mumbaikars indoors, travails to continue as supplies run shortBella Jaisinghani | TNN | Updated: Mar 22, 2020, 22:16 ISTPhoto for representative purpose onlyMUMBAI: Unprecedented in living memory is how Mumbaikars would describe Sunday's 'Janata Curfew'. The enforced closure in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic saw the entire city stay put home. The travails set to continue. The politically affiliated wholesalers of APMC Vashi have announced a disruption in vegetable and fruit supplies until March 31, citing coronavirus fears, Gudi Padwa and an "important anniversary". They also quote beimg booked for unlawful assembly under Section 144 which however does not apply to vegetables and fruit that are classified as Essential Commodities. Bread manufacturers are not sure they will be able to produce and deliver supplies. Milk vendors fear harassment by police and BMC as they gather in the hundreds at milk depots. Grocers have been asked to close kn several places to "dissipate gatherings". Coronavirus in India live updatesAt 5.00pm Sunday, residents of several housing societies raised a toast to health and sanitation workers who are protecting citizens from the disease. Rousing sounds of bells, metal plates and conch shells rose from neighbourhoods citywide. Later in a sudden development, health minister Rajesh Tope said that the state government was extending the curfew from 9.00pm Sunday to 5.00am Monday. Following this deadline, the imposition of Section 144 across the state will come into effect till March 31. "Two separate orders will be issued to extend the curfew," he said. Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray echoed his words saying, "The self restraint that people showed Sunday is commendable, but they should not come out of their homes even after 9.00pm. We have entered a sensitive phase in our fight against the virus, and during this phase the virus multiplies, which we must ensure does not happen." It was a rare day when the power of the term "essential services" was diluted. Electricity and water supply remained normal but milk and newspapers were not delivered in many localities of Bandra, Saat Rasta, Sanpada in Navi Mumbai and Kalyan. Certain societies in Malad, Kurla-Kalina and Kalyan debarred the entry of newspaper delivery boys, stopped subscription or forced them to drop the papers at the building gate to minimise contact with each resident. This prompted the unions to threaten calling off delivery until March 31. Vegetable stalls and grocery shops were shut. Petrol pumps functioned to minimum capacity as several employees were unable to arrive, though thankfully, demand was low as well. The BMC's garbage vans did arrive in many lanes but since local waste collectors had not come to work, housing societies were unable to arrange individual collection and disposal themselves. Domestic servants, drivers and building watchmen stayed away. The shutdown of eating joints has forced bachelors, labourers and travellers whose trains have been cancelled to go hungry. The odd milk booth functioned inside the Mahanand Dairy in Goregaon. Naziya Aslam, who had bought foodstuff in bulk from D'Mart Versova last week said, "All of us who were blamed for panic buying have been proved right, haven't we? The lockdown is extended till March 31, shops are closed and transport has halted." Around 1,500 BEST buses plied, though passengers were few, and at train stations, railway squads checked people's identity cards to make sure only essential travellers were commuting. Taxi-auto union leader Shashank Rao said that skeletal services operated, particularly around hospitals and railway stations. City police, traffic police and railway police have been given masks and sanitisers. Weekly offs and leave of railway policemen are cancelled. Traffic police though has permitted leave to ailing personnel. “On Sunday there was no traffic and rare vehicles were asked to turn back after checking IDs,” said DCP Traffic Somnath Gharge. "Our staff is instructed to clean patrolling vehicles with Dettol twice a day, keep washrooms clean and make complainants use sanitisers before entering the police station. We are also visiting corporate offices asking them to enforce the work from home rule,” said Andheri police inspector Balwant Deshmukh. In Palghar, political workers were urged to not force essential shops to shut. So far 123 cases have been filed for not following closure orders. In Kalyan-Dombivli, Ulhasnagar and Ambernath also shops and commercial establishments remained completely closed during Janta Curfew.

They include a 51-year-old man in Ahmednagar with a travel history to Dubai and one woman in in Mumbai with a travel history to UK. He added that the State has banned all flights from 12 countries besides taking extreme precautions for flights from all other nations at the three international airports in Mumbai, Pune and Nagpur since the past over a month. The other two afflicted are a 49-year-old from Ulhasnagar town in Thane who had travelled to Dubai, and a 22-year-old from Mumbai who had visited the United Kingdom.  They were in isolation since the past few days and their test reports came positive on Thursday, officials said. They are currently undergoing treatment at isolation wards in Mumbai as the State Government and the city civic administration grapples with the mega challenge of not allowing people to crowd together to keep the virus at bay. On Tuesday, COVID-19 claimed it’s first victim in the State when a 63-year-old man with a history of travel to Dubai, passed away in Mumbai’s Kasturba Hospital. His wife and son who also tested positive are currently under treatment in the same hospital.   Thackeray seeks peoples’ help for ‘war against virus’  MUMBAI :  MAHARASHTRA Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Thursday sought peoples’ cooperation for the ongoing ‘war against virus’ that has created a global medical havoc since the past couple of months. Addressing the people of the State, Thackeray assured that the State and Centre are “fully geared” for what he termed as ‘a world war’ that has been waged against coronavirus. “Like in the days of the (1971) India-Pakistan War, the siren has been sounded. We all have to be alert and fight this global war. This virus is spreading step-by-step and Maharashtra has the highest number of affected,” Thackeray said.  He reiterated his impassioned plea to the 1.70 crore people of Mumbai to reduce the crowds in public and avoid ‘social contacts’. “There is some improvement. But more needs to be done. Please try to remain indoors as far as possible, avoid all unnecessary commutes/travels and exercise precautions at all times. Work from home as far as possible. Those with the ‘quarantine stamps’ must not step out,” Thackeray urged. The CM’s address came hours before Prime Minister Modi’s scheduled address to the nation tonight at 8 p.m.

Government officials said he had gone on a two-week trip to Germany via Italy and landed at Delhi on March 6 and left for Punjab the same day. After the man’s samples confirmed the virus, authorities completely blocked his village. “We have quarantined around 56 villagers, including 18 from his family, and relatives who came in contact with him,” Nawanshahr civil surgeon Dr Rajinder Bhatia said, adding that those quarantined include the doctor, nurse and ward body who attended on him. “He reported typical symptoms of heart attack with chest pain and died in around 25 minutes,” said Bhatia. The number of states reporting Covid-19 deaths has gone up to four now, the other three being Karnataka, Maharashtra and Delhi. With Gujarat reporting two confirmed cases and Chhattisgarh one, the number of states and Union territories affected by the dreaded virus rose from 18 to 20 on Thursday.

Sixteen persons who were in contact with him, including his relatives, have been quarantined at a special facility set up in the city. Rajkot district health officer Manish Bhanderi told TOI: “In all, there were 68 people in the coach. Of these, 15 were residents of Rajkot while 45 others have either returned to Mumbai or de-boarded before Rajkot. We have contacted these 60 people and they are not ill. However, five passengers are incommunicado while three had given the number of their booking agents.” The second case in Gujarat is of a 21-year-old girl who had landed in Mumbai from London on March 13 and reached Surat on March 14. The girl, who studies in London, was admitted in the isolation ward of the New Civil Hospital on March 16 after she complained of severe cough, fever and cold. “We have shifted eight of her close contacts, including parents, to a special quarantine facility,’’ Banchhanidhi Pani, Surat municipal commissioner, told TOI. On Thursday, prohibitory orders were imposed in Surat, banning gathering of four or more people in public places under Section 144 of CrPC. Of the 23 fresh cases in the country on Thursday, three each were reported from Telangana and Maharashtra, two each from Delhi, Gujarat, Uttarakhand, Andhra and UP, and one each from Haryana, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Punjab, Karnataka, Odisha and Chhattisgarh. Maharashtra continues to top the list with 48 cases. The three new cases reported from the state on Thursday include a 22-year-old woman with a travel history to the UK, a 49-year-old woman from Ulhasnagar who had travelled to Dubai and a 51-year-old from Ahmednagar who had been to Dubai with his wife.

2020-03-20Coronavirus Pandemic: Lady from Ulhasnagar who tested positive attends a satsang with 1,500 people - Mumbai Live
Coronavirus Pandemic: Lady from Ulhasnagar who tested positive attends a satsang with 1,500 peopleEdit Story|Edit Page MetaCoronavirus Pandemic: Lady from Ulhasnagar who tested positive attends a satsang with 1,500 peopleBy Mumbai Live Team MumbaiSHAREOn Thursday, a man from Kalyan had tested positive for COVID-19. It was later learnt that before testing positive, he had been to a wedding in Solapur. After learning this information, the Kalyan Dombivli Municipal Corporation was in a tizzy. Many people took to social media to criticise the moves of the man in question. However, it seems that people still are not taking this situation as seriously as they should. Almost every day there are news reports regarding cases of people running from hospitals after being told that they test positive. And then they are others who are stamped for home quarantine but they are found travelling in public transport and thus putting everyone they are travelling with at risk for catching this deadly disease. Another such incident took place yesterday. In this case, the Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation learned that a 49-year-old woman from Ulhasnagar who was tested positive had attended a satsang (religious gathering) at a city-based ashram.Following which, a special team has been asked to track all those who reportedly came in contact with the patient. Currently, the lady is admitted at Kasturba hospital in Mumbai.As per the officials, her family members have been quarantined and five others who had travelled to Dubai with her, are undergoing check-up at Kasturba Hospital. It is being estimated that the woman had come in contact with over 1,500 people at this satsang on March 8.The woman was diagnosed after she returned from her Dubai trip on March 4 and complained that she was feeling unwell. However, the lady then attended a satsang on March 8. Later, her condition worsened and she visited a private hospital on Wednesday. The hospital referred her to Kasturba Hospital.The officials have shared the details of the woman and her travel history with the Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation who have formed teams to sanitise her residence. Another 15-member team is tracing the people that came in contact with the woman in the past 15 days.To dissuade people from running away, Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh on Thursday announced that there will be strict legal police action against such people and also against those who are not following the recommendation to be in isolation.

Comic books, janata curfew: How India is pushing back against the coronavirus India reported its 4th casualty on Thursday, while number of infected persons in 173 Web Desk March 20, 2020 08:06 IST Women wearing masks at a store in Kolkata | Salil Bera Prime Minister Narendra Modi, making a request to the public to stay indoors as much as possible, called for a ‘Janata curfew’ on Sunday. He requested all citizens to avoid venturing out from 7am to 9pm on March 22. “This Sunday, all citizens must follow this curfew from 7am until 9pm. During this curfew, we shall neither leave our homes, nor get onto the streets and refrain from roaming about in our societies or areas. Only those associated with emergency and essential services may leave their homes," Modi said, adding that the curfew will be a litmus test to show how much India is ready to take on the challenge of the coronavirus pandemic. "Even World War I and II did not affect as many countries as coronavirus has done," PM Modi said. “Sacrifice some weeks of yours, some time of yours,” he said, given that coronavirus has no cure yet, the only way to stay safe is to stay indoors. "I request all people in country to get out of house only when it is extremely necessary, try and do all work from home." India had reported its fourth coronavirus casualty on Thursday; the total number of cases is now 173. Almost 54 cases were reported in the past two days.

Most of the states in the country have imposed restrictions, now inching towards a partial shutdown.

Titled ‘Kids, Vaayu and Corona’, it starts off with a story of young children summoning the superhero Vaayu after their parents don’t have time to explain what coronavirus is to them. Vaayu then dispenses sage advice like washing hands properly, maintaining a social distance, covering your mouth while coughing and sneezing and greeting traditionally (for Muslims, Hindus, Christians and Sikhs), and immediately approaching a doctor in case of any sickness. Advisory on social distancing The Centre has also released a 15-point social distancing measure advisory, suggesting the steps to be taken to avoid/decrease contact between those who are infected with the disease causing pathogen and those who are not, so as to stop or slow down the rate and extent of disease transmission in a community, leading to eventual decease of spread, morbidity and mortality due to the disease.

District health officials said the panic over COVID-19 and the lack of information about the disease have resulted in private hospitals and doctors turning away patients with symptoms similar to the coronavirus infection. The doctor in question had neither travelled abroad nor had come in contact with any patient who tested positive for COVID-19. The Indian Express reported that the doctor had developed high-grade fever and suffered from breathlessness on Wednesday night.

Meanwhile, the number of cases in Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) touched 21 after three people were detected with COVID-19, comprising two from the metropolis and one from Kalyan in neighbouring Thane district. Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation deputy director (health), Daksha Shah, said the number of COVID-19 patients in Mumbai was now 11, including a senior citizen who died on March 17. "Everyday we find 1-2 positive patients. Most have international travel history, and in 4-5 cases, we found contact history. Hence we are saying transmission in families and close contracts has started," she said. She said the 62-year-old who tested positive in Mumbai suffers from blood pressure, diabetes and cancer, and hence is in a high risk category. The 53-year-old man from Kalyan, who tested positive on Friday, was part of the group of 40 people who returned from Dubai on March 14, and he developed symptoms on March 19, she informed. "BMC has now activated isolation and OPD screening facilities at other designated centres in suburban Mumbai, as the facility was operational only at Kasturba hospital and Trauma Care Hospital till Thursday. Private hospitals will be ready with 100 beds soon," Shah said. "We have activated a new laboratory at KEM hospital and started testing samples there in two shifts, while private laboratories are also ready to conduct tests once they get permission from the government," said Shah. She stressed on quarantine, contact tracing and restrictions on mass gathering, as was done in places like Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan, to stall the exponential multiplication of COVID-19 cases. She said these measures will ensure the transmission of the disease does not move from stage 2 to stage 3.  Deccan Herald News now on Telegram - Click here to subscribe DH Newsletter Privacy Policy Get top news in your inbox daily GET IT MaharashtraCoronavirusCOVID-19 0 Comments (+) Related stories Virus scare: Konkan railway, SR cancel trains Five under observation in DK Covid-19: DC asks people to come out of denial... ‘Need to break chain of transmission of coronavirus’...

2020-03-20Mumbai, Pune: What will shut, what won’t from tonight - Condé Nast Traveller India
Mumbai, Pune: What will shut, what won’t from tonightKeep calm, it’s not a lockdown (yet) Share on facebook + Condé Nast Traveller Published: Mar 20, 2020 | 15:13:16 IST Scenes from an empty Marine Drive on Thursday. Photo: Hindustan Times / Contributor Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur–Maharasthra’s three top cities–will go into a sort of a semi-lockdown starting midnight on Friday, 20 March. All non-essential commercial activity will be paused as Maharashtra battles the coronavirus epidemic, the state’s chief minister Uddhav Thackeray has announced. Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur | Is it a lockdown?Not exactly. At least not in the form it’s being enforced in other parts of the world. For one, you can still step out of your house. Not advisable, but there are no legal restrictions on movement, unlike in Italy where over 40,000 citizens have been fined for violating the quarantine. (Among them was a priest officiating a funeral, and a gentleman trying to buy some entertainment for the night). Also, mass public transport and all major essential services will function, so it’s not all that bad.A view of the Gateway of India after the Maharashtra government restricted mass public gatherings to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the region. Photo: SOPA Images / ContributorWhat parts of Maharashtra will these curbs impact?The curbs will be in place at Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur, Pimpri-Chinchwad and the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, or MMR, which includes Thane, Kalyan-Dombivali, Navi Mumbai, Ulhasnagar, Bhiwandi-Nizamapur, Vasai-Virar and Mira-Bhayandar; and 9 Municipal Councils viz. Ambarnath, Kulgaon-Badalapur, Matheran, Karjat, Panvel, Khopoli, Pen, Uran, and Alibaug, along with more than 1,000 villages in Thane and Raigad Districts.What will remain shut across Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur, MMR?All private companies involved in non-essential businesses have been asked to allow 50% of their workforce to work from home. Those that cannot, or do not comply, will have to shut their offices till 31 March. State government offices themselves will function with 25% of the workforce.Non-essential facilities like some restaurants, bars etc will be shut.All non-essential stores (clothes, stationary etc) are likely to remain shut.Over and above the rules issued by the state, the BMC has issued a separate list. Here’s what it saysWhat will continue to function?Public transport. Trains and buses, such as the BEST in Mumbai and PMT in Pune will continue to ply. The CM said this is to ensure that those who absolutely must travel–including staff working to provide essential services–can travel unhindered. Auto-rickshaws and taxis have also been exempt for now. Shutting trains will be the absolute last resort, the CM said.Daily essentials will be available. Chemists, dispensaries, grocery stories, food and vegetable markets, banks, etc will be allowed.Delivery services like Amazon, Zomato, Swiggy have been classified as essentials and will be allowed to operate.Of course, the general advice is to stay indoors, or tougher measures will follow, says the CM.

2020-03-20COVID-19: Sick Maharashtra doctor on ventilator after hospitals turned him away - THE WEEK
COVID-19: Sick Maharashtra doctor on ventilator after hospitals turned him away Private hospitals were afraid that he was suffering from the coronavirus Web Desk March 20, 2020 12:24 IST Representational image A Maharashtra-based doctor, who reportedly suffered from fever and breathlessness, and was turned away from four private hospitals, is currently on ventilator at the Jalgaon Government Medical College, The Indian Express reported. The publication wrote that the doctor was not admitted because the private hospitals were scared that his was a case of the COVID-19 pandemic. The doctor reportedly never had a history of foreign travel, or contact with coronavirus-infected patients, which could have aided transmission. THE WEEK could not independently verify the veracity of the report, and it is not clear whether the doctor himself has been diagnosed with the coronavirus. The doctor reportedly started suffering from high fever on Wednesday, but the hospitals refused to admit him. “Every hospital refused to admit him. They said what if he had coronavirus. We told them he had not travelled abroad but nobody listened. We spent the entire night running from one hospital to another,” the doctor’s uncle told The Indian Express. He was later admitted at the government medical college. The total number of COVID-19 cases in the state of Maharashtra has now touched 48. The break-up of the patients as of March 19 is Pimpri Chinchwad (11), Pune (8), Mumbai (9), Nagpur (4), 3 each in Yawatmal, Navi Mumbai and Kalyan. 2 positive cases in Ahmednagar, and one positive case each in Raigad, thane, Ulhasnagar, Aurangabad and Ratnagiri. On March 19, 78 suspected patients have been admitted in designated hospitals. An estimated 1,305 travellers have come in to Maharashtra from COVID-19-affected countries till date. Various district hospitals and Central medical universities will now be used for isolation and quarantine purposes, said state health minister Rajesh Tope. The state health minister visited the city's airport authorities to take updates on their arrangements and preparations with regards to fighting the COVID-19 scare. also read India records fifth death, Italian tourist passes away Covid-19: Actor Daniel Dae Kim tests positive, calls to end prejudice against Asians Cannes Film Festival postponed amid coronavirus outbreak COVID-19: Shane Warne flips gin-making with producing hand sanitisers TAGS Novel Coronavirus

Maharashtra had on Wednesday decided to keep government offices functional with 50% attendance and operate railway, state transport, private buses, metro, and public transport system at 50% capacity. After a review meeting on Wednesday evening, chief minister Uddhav Thackeray said, "To tackle the coronavirus outbreak, the need of the hour is to control crowding." Commuters will not be allowed to stand in buses and will sit at a distance from each other, Thackeray said. The government has also decided to change the timings of shops so that they remain open by turns from morning to evening. On Tuesday, COVID-19 claimed its first victim in Mumbai--a 63-year-old man-- prompting the state government to ramp up testing and isolation facilities and take help from private hospitals and laboratories. After a review meeting by a group of ministers on Monday, the government advised people to avoid non-essential travel. Many companies have allowed their employees to work from home. The government is stamping the hands of all those who have been sent to home quarantine to prevent the number of cases from increasing. COVID-19 has affected 218,815 people globally and left 8,810 dead so far, according to Johns Hopkins live tracker. The number of cases in India has risen to 169, with three deaths so far.

2020-03-19Maha on edge as govt wages all-out ‘war against virus’ - SocialNews.XYZ
Maha on edge as govt wages all-out ‘war against virus’ Maha on edge as govt wages all-out ‘war against virus’ Posted By: Gopi March 19, 2020 By Quaid Najmi Mumbai, March 19 (SocialNews.XYZ) Maharashtra was tense as the state government launched an all-out 'war against virus' with the number of Covid-19 patients touching 49 - the highest in India - on Thursday. Besides combating coronavirus, the bigger challenge before the state government was to keep crowds at home, especially in big cities like Mumbai, Thane, Navi Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur, Aurangabad or Nashik, to insulate them from the increasing spread.   The state added four new patients on Thursday - two from Mumbai, one from Ulhasnagar (Thane) and one in Ahmednagar - taking the total to 49 positive cases. Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray again appealed to the common people to stay at home, avoid unnecessary commute and exercise round-the-clock precautions, and also hinted he would not hesitate to shut down the suburban railways, metro, buses and other public transport which ferry around a crore souls in Mumbai daily. Thackeray's plea seemed to touch a chord and an estimated 1.50 million people chose to avoid commuting on Thursday, and the crowds appeared to be receding even on city and suburban roads and highways. Though Mumbai did not wear a totally deserted look, there were visible changes in public habits with most places - usually crowded - closed. Taking the cue, Mumbai's famed dabbawalas have suspended their tiffin box services till March 31, according to their spokesperson Subhash Talekar. Ahead of the crucial Friday prayers, Suhail Khandwani, Managing Trustee of both the Mahim Dargah and Haji Ali mausoleum in Worli, announced a closure of the two crowded places for the next few days, besides taking up complete sanitisation of the complexes within and outside. Taking a severe battering since a week around the state, trade and commercial activities have decided to shut down for varying periods - ranging from 3 days to 12 days - in parts of Mumbai and other cities like Thane, Ulhasnagar, Kalyan-Dombivali, Ratnagiri, Pune. The Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) tightened the screws further after Municipal Commissioner Praveen Pardeshi ordered alternative days open for road-touching shops and establishments to reduce the crowds, which was implemented in different areas. Bracing for more, Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur are expected to get over 40,000 passengers by different flights over the next 12 days from various affected countries needing quarantine. However, with the Centre announcing a ban on all incoming international flights from March 22, the pressure will ease on the state health authorities. The Western Railway, Central Railway, and Konkan Railway have totally cancelled over six dozen long-distance train services over the next fortnight due to low occupancy. The WR and CR also cancelled its airconditioned local train services for an indefinite period and replaced them with regular trains. State transport buses were suspended in certain districts like Ratnagiri, Pune over the next few days to reduce crowds. Elsewhere, in Pune, Ulhasnagar, Kalyan-Dombivali, thousands of shops, hotels, restaurants - barring essentials like pharmacies, bakeries, dairies and grocery shops - went on a voluntary shutdown for three days, as people grappled to lead a normal life. As people gradually started staying indoors, the impact was felt by roadside stalls selling vegetables, fruits, fast foods, juices or ice-creams, hot and cold beverages, etc. leading to a fall in prices, causing dismay among the poor vendors. In contrast, most online companies have reported a massive spurt in orders from customers indulging in shopping from home. Worried by the piling losses, the Federation of Associations of Indian Tourism & Hospitality (FAITH) Chairman Nakul Anand on Thursday demanded a year-long moratorium and different types of urgent interventions by the Centre to prevent the travel, tourism, hoteliering and aviation industry from sinking to bankruptcy. Meanwhile, Thackeray said that attendance in all government offices has been regulated to 50 percent, and urged the private sector to follow suit, while Pardeshi has warned of action against private companies where more than 50 percent staffers are found in offices. The Pune Collector also issued orders restricting the presence of more than 5 employees in private offices, following complaints by IT industry employees that their managements allegedly flouted orders by forcing them to work in large numbers. Health Minister Rajesh Tope reiterated that there is sufficient availability of testing labs for Covid-19 and more are being opened up in the next few days, besides enough stocks of masks, sanitizers, ventilators and other medical equipment. Touring some medical and snacks centres like Haldiram in Nagpur for flouting government directives, Home Minister Anil Deshmukh warned pranksters of stringent action if they were found spreading misinformation of mischievous messages via social media. Among the precautions noticed in Mumbai are visitors asked to sanitise or wash their hands before entering any building, housing complexes or private societies, steps to fumigate buildings and other measures to curb the virus spread.

COVID-19: Goa company offers solution to hand sanitiser shortage IANS 19 March 2020 To bookmark you need to sign in  1 One really can't do without a beer in Goa, it seems. In times of COVID-19, it is a Goa-based beer brewing company which could help ease the panic triggered by the ongoing hand sanitiser shortage in the state.   Goa Brewing Co., a two-year-old beer manufacturer, has begun offering hand sanitiser refills free of cost to people, to tide over the crisis.   Speaking to IANS, Ashtavinayak Paradh, chief brewer at the Sangolda-based brewery said, that the hand-sanitiser refill was essentially isopropyl alcohol or rubbing alcohol, which contains 70 per cent alcohol, and serves the same purpose -- maintaining hygiene -- as a hand sanitiser liquid.   "We are offering it free of charge to people because of the coronavirus pandemic. All that needs to be done is, approach us with an empty bottle or a container and we will refill it," Paradh said.   The chief brewer said that 'rubbing alcohol' is just one of the many chemicals which is used to maintain hygiene at the brewery and sparing some in times of the crisis for people at large was in sync with the company's social outreach code.   Goa Brewing Co. manufactures several beers, which include Breakfast Cereal Stout, Saint & Sinner and their flagship Eight Finger Eddie, a beer named after one of Goa's earliest hippies.   Disclaimer: Information, facts or opinions expressed in this news article are presented as sourced from IANS and do not reflect views of Moneylife and hence Moneylife is not responsible or liable for the same.

2020-03-19Maha on edge as govt wages all-out 'war against virus' - Daijiworld.com
Maha on edge as govt wages all-out 'war against virus'   Thu, Mar 19 2020 09:10:11 PM Mumbai, March 19 (IANS): Maharashtra was tense as the state government launched an all-out 'war against virus' with the number of Covid-19 patients touching 49 - the highest in India - on Thursday. Besides combating coronavirus, the bigger challenge before the state government was to keep crowds at home, especially in big cities like Mumbai, Thane, Navi Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur, Aurangabad or Nashik, to insulate them from the increasing spread. The state added four new patients on Thursday - two from Mumbai, one from Ulhasnagar (Thane) and one in Ahmednagar - taking the total to 49 positive cases. Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray again appealed to the common people to stay at home, avoid unnecessary commute and exercise round-the-clock precautions, and also hinted he would not hesitate to shut down the suburban railways, metro, buses and other public transport which ferry around a crore souls in Mumbai daily. Thackeray's plea seemed to touch a chord and an estimated 1.50 million people chose to avoid commuting on Thursday, and the crowds appeared to be receding even on city and suburban roads and highways. Though Mumbai did not wear a totally deserted look, there were visible changes in public habits with most places - usually crowded - closed. Taking the cue, Mumbai's famed dabbawalas have suspended their tiffin box services till March 31, according to their spokesperson Subhash Talekar. Ahead of the crucial Friday prayers, Suhail Khandwani, Managing Trustee of both the Mahim Dargah and Haji Ali mausoleum in Worli, announced a closure of the two crowded places for the next few days, besides taking up complete sanitisation of the complexes within and outside. Taking a severe battering since a week around the state, trade and commercial activities have decided to shut down for varying periods - ranging from 3 days to 12 days - in parts of Mumbai and other cities like Thane, Ulhasnagar, Kalyan-Dombivali, Ratnagiri, Pune. The Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) tightened the screws further after Municipal Commissioner Praveen Pardeshi ordered alternative days open for road-touching shops and establishments to reduce the crowds, which was implemented in different areas. Bracing for more, Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur are expected to get over 40,000 passengers by different flights over the next 12 days from various affected countries needing quarantine. However, with the Centre announcing a ban on all incoming international flights from March 22, the pressure will ease on the state health authorities. The Western Railway, Central Railway, and Konkan Railway have totally cancelled over six dozen long-distance train services over the next fortnight due to low occupancy. The WR and CR also cancelled its airconditioned local train services for an indefinite period and replaced them with regular trains. State transport buses were suspended in certain districts like Ratnagiri, Pune over the next few days to reduce crowds. Elsewhere, in Pune, Ulhasnagar, Kalyan-Dombivali, thousands of shops, hotels, restaurants - barring essentials like pharmacies, bakeries, dairies and grocery shops - went on a voluntary shutdown for three days, as people grappled to lead a normal life. As people gradually started staying indoors, the impact was felt by roadside stalls selling vegetables, fruits, fast foods, juices or ice-creams, hot and cold beverages, etc. leading to a fall in prices, causing dismay among the poor vendors. In contrast, most online companies have reported a massive spurt in orders from customers indulging in shopping from home. Worried by the piling losses, the Federation of Associations of Indian Tourism & Hospitality (FAITH) Chairman Nakul Anand on Thursday demanded a year-long moratorium and different types of urgent interventions by the Centre to prevent the travel, tourism, hoteliering and aviation industry from sinking to bankruptcy. Meanwhile, Thackeray said that attendance in all government offices has been regulated to 50 percent, and urged the private sector to follow suit, while Pardeshi has warned of action against private companies where more than 50 percent staffers are found in offices. The Pune Collector also issued orders restricting the presence of more than 5 employees in private offices, following complaints by IT industry employees that their managements allegedly flouted orders by forcing them to work in large numbers. Health Minister Rajesh Tope reiterated that there is sufficient availability of testing labs for Covid-19 and more are being opened up in the next few days, besides enough stocks of masks, sanitizers, ventilators and other medical equipment. Touring some medical and snacks centres like Haldiram in Nagpur for flouting government directives, Home Minister Anil Deshmukh warned pranksters of stringent action if they were found spreading misinformation of mischievous messages via social media. Among the precautions noticed in Mumbai are visitors asked to sanitise or wash their hands before entering any building, housing complexes or private societies, steps to fumigate buildings and other measures to curb the virus spread.      Top Stories Coronavirus: Section 144 imposed in Dakshina Kannada till Mar 31   17 hours ago    15 You might also like LEAVE A COMMENTYour Email address will not be published.

Coronavirus update: Mumbai reports 2 new cases, Maharashtra count up to 47 1 min read . Updated: 19 Mar 2020, 11:01 AM IST Agencies Two women from Mumbai metropolitan region were found to be coronavirus positiveEvery fourth coronavirus case in India is from Maharashtra Share Via Read Full Story NEW DELHI : After two women tested positive for coronavirus in Mumbai metropolitan region, the total number of such cases has climbed to 47 in Maharashtra, according to the state health ministry. A 22-year-old woman from Mumbai, who tested positive for COVID-19 has a travel history to UK while another a 49-year-old woman from Ulhasnagar has a travel history to Dubai. The total number of coronavirus cases has gone up to 171 in India. Maharashtra has the highest number of coronavirus positive cases. Out of the 47 cases in the western state, three are foreigners. Another patient who had a travel history to Dubai has already passed away in Kasturba hospital. To control the spread of the virus, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has imposed a fine of ₹1,000 for spitting in public places. In the last few days, the corporation has collected over ₹1 lakh fine for spitting. "Spitting in public space will attract a fine of Rs. 1,000 or detention u/s 189 IPC. While we do our best to ensure that no such act takes place in the city, a little cooperation from Mumbaikars in these difficult times will help us go a long way in our fight against Coronavirus," BMC said. Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has appealed to people to avoid train and bus journey if not necessary. He has also clarified that the government does not want to stop local train services to contain the coronavirus spread. The government has, however, decided to reduce the load on public transport services, including suburban locals, to 50%. The Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation and Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation Electric Supply and Transport (BEST) has stopped standing journey on buses to avoid crowding and enforce social distancing.

Maha on edge as govt wages all-out 'war against virus'   Thu, Mar 19 2020 09:10:11 PM Mumbai, March 19 (IANS): Maharashtra was tense as the state government launched an all-out 'war against virus' with the number of Covid-19 patients touching 49 - the highest in India - on Thursday. Besides combating coronavirus, the bigger challenge before the state government was to keep crowds at home, especially in big cities like Mumbai, Thane, Navi Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur, Aurangabad or Nashik, to insulate them from the increasing spread. The state added four new patients on Thursday - two from Mumbai, one from Ulhasnagar (Thane) and one in Ahmednagar - taking the total to 49 positive cases. Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray again appealed to the common people to stay at home, avoid unnecessary commute and exercise round-the-clock precautions, and also hinted he would not hesitate to shut down the suburban railways, metro, buses and other public transport which ferry around a crore souls in Mumbai daily. Thackeray's plea seemed to touch a chord and an estimated 1.50 million people chose to avoid commuting on Thursday, and the crowds appeared to be receding even on city and suburban roads and highways. Though Mumbai did not wear a totally deserted look, there were visible changes in public habits with most places - usually crowded - closed. Taking the cue, Mumbai's famed dabbawalas have suspended their tiffin box services till March 31, according to their spokesperson Subhash Talekar. Ahead of the crucial Friday prayers, Suhail Khandwani, Managing Trustee of both the Mahim Dargah and Haji Ali mausoleum in Worli, announced a closure of the two crowded places for the next few days, besides taking up complete sanitisation of the complexes within and outside. Taking a severe battering since a week around the state, trade and commercial activities have decided to shut down for varying periods - ranging from 3 days to 12 days - in parts of Mumbai and other cities like Thane, Ulhasnagar, Kalyan-Dombivali, Ratnagiri, Pune. The Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) tightened the screws further after Municipal Commissioner Praveen Pardeshi ordered alternative days open for road-touching shops and establishments to reduce the crowds, which was implemented in different areas. Bracing for more, Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur are expected to get over 40,000 passengers by different flights over the next 12 days from various affected countries needing quarantine. However, with the Centre announcing a ban on all incoming international flights from March 22, the pressure will ease on the state health authorities. The Western Railway, Central Railway, and Konkan Railway have totally cancelled over six dozen long-distance train services over the next fortnight due to low occupancy. The WR and CR also cancelled its airconditioned local train services for an indefinite period and replaced them with regular trains. State transport buses were suspended in certain districts like Ratnagiri, Pune over the next few days to reduce crowds. Elsewhere, in Pune, Ulhasnagar, Kalyan-Dombivali, thousands of shops, hotels, restaurants - barring essentials like pharmacies, bakeries, dairies and grocery shops - went on a voluntary shutdown for three days, as people grappled to lead a normal life. As people gradually started staying indoors, the impact was felt by roadside stalls selling vegetables, fruits, fast foods, juices or ice-creams, hot and cold beverages, etc. leading to a fall in prices, causing dismay among the poor vendors. In contrast, most online companies have reported a massive spurt in orders from customers indulging in shopping from home. Worried by the piling losses, the Federation of Associations of Indian Tourism & Hospitality (FAITH) Chairman Nakul Anand on Thursday demanded a year-long moratorium and different types of urgent interventions by the Centre to prevent the travel, tourism, hoteliering and aviation industry from sinking to bankruptcy. Meanwhile, Thackeray said that attendance in all government offices has been regulated to 50 percent, and urged the private sector to follow suit, while Pardeshi has warned of action against private companies where more than 50 percent staffers are found in offices. The Pune Collector also issued orders restricting the presence of more than 5 employees in private offices, following complaints by IT industry employees that their managements allegedly flouted orders by forcing them to work in large numbers. Health Minister Rajesh Tope reiterated that there is sufficient availability of testing labs for Covid-19 and more are being opened up in the next few days, besides enough stocks of masks, sanitizers, ventilators and other medical equipment. Touring some medical and snacks centres like Haldiram in Nagpur for flouting government directives, Home Minister Anil Deshmukh warned pranksters of stringent action if they were found spreading misinformation of mischievous messages via social media. Among the precautions noticed in Mumbai are visitors asked to sanitise or wash their hands before entering any building, housing complexes or private societies, steps to fumigate buildings and other measures to curb the virus spread.      Top Stories Coronavirus: Section 144 imposed in Dakshina Kannada till Mar 31   7 hours ago    10 You might also like LEAVE A COMMENTYour Email address will not be published.

The Antony IPO consisted of a fresh issue of ₹35 crore and an offer-for-sale of 5.7 million shares, including an anchor portion of 2.065 million shares. The price range for the offer was fixed at ₹295-300 per share. Ahead of the public offering, Antony Waste Handling Cell had raised ₹60.94 crore from three anchor investors. The IPO, which opened on 4 March and was initially planned to close on 6 March, was extended till 16 March, as it could not garner enough investor interest in the three-day public offering. On Monday, the company informed the stock exchanges that it was calling off the deal. “BRLM (book running lead manager) to the Antony Waste Handling Cell Ltd, has informed the Exchange that due to the prevailing market conditions, pursuant to a Resolution passed by the IPO committee of the company on March 16, 2020, the issuer has now decided to withdraw the issue, in consultation with BRLMs and Registrar. Hence, the IPO of Antony Waste Handling Cell Limited will be treated as withdrawn," a statement to the stock exchanges read. Antony is not the only company whose fundraising plans have been hit by the coronavirus outbreak. The Covid-19 panic in the stock markets and various travel restrictions around the world have also impacted merger and acquisition deals.

2020-03-14Coronavirus outbreak: Woman in Mumbai showing symptoms isolates self in hotel, earns official praise - The Indian Express
Coronavirus outbreak: Woman in Mumbai showing symptoms isolates self in hotel, earns official praise Coronavirus outbreak: Woman in Mumbai showing symptoms isolates self in hotel, earns official praise At 1 am on March 12, an ambulance was sent to the hotel to bring the woman to Kasturba hospital. The same day, her nasal swab was tested for Covid-19. Her samples tested negative, and by evening, she was discharged. Written by Tabassum Barnagarwala | Mumbai | Published: March 15, 2020 3:28:53 am Agra District Magistrate Prabhu Narain Singh said he had ordered the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) to file an FIR against the woman, 26, and her family for actions that could have endangered lives. (Representational Image) A businesswoman who arrived in Mumbai from Frankfurt, decided to isolate herself in a hotel room rather than go back home after she displayed symptoms of Covid-19. Her actions have earned the praise of civic officials, who are taking her example to explain how a person should behave to check community transmission of coronavirus. The woman, who arrived in Mumbai on March 11, had no fever while at the airport and cleared thermal scanning. Once outside, however, she suffered breathlessness and decided against going to her home in Ulhasnagar in order to prevent possible transmission to her family and neighbours. Instead, she booked a cab and travelled to Navi Mumbai, where she checked into a hotel. While she remained under isolation in the hotel room, her family started making calls to inquire about testing facility. “One relative reached out to me and informed about her symptoms. We immediately decided to admit her to Kasturba hospital and logistics were arranged,” said Dr Santosh Revankar, Deputy Executive Health Officer with the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). At 1 am on March 12, an ambulance was sent to the hotel to bring the woman to Kasturba hospital. The same day, her nasal swab was tested for Covid-19. Her samples tested negative, and by evening, she was discharged. “But her case shows how aware and responsible she is,” Revankar, who is also handling airport screening of travellers, said. The official added that at the airport, passengers are only screened for fever but for other symptoms, a person has to report himself. Dr Jayanthi Shastri, heading the laboratory at Kasturba hospital, said citizens who have a travel history to coronavirus-affected countries should not be absolved of being careless if they develop symptoms and still continue to interact with the community. “Such people should practice social distancing. Only then can we control the outbreak. Government alone cannot do everything,” Shastri said. On Friday night, four people suspected of being infected with coronavirus escaped an isolation facility at Mayo hospital, Nagpur, raising concerns over the lack of sensitisation amongst people. The police traced them by Saturday morning and brought them back. They have all tested negative for the virus. Meanwhile, the ambulance that transported the businesswoman on March 12 has been fumigated as a precaution. “Whenever a suspected case is transported, we hand over protective gear to the ambulance doctor and driver for use,” Dr Ashish Yadav from BVG 108 ambulance added.

Mumbai Woman with coronavirus-like symptoms isolates self in hotel room, earns praise Mumbai Woman with coronavirus-like symptoms isolates self in hotel room, earns praise Thirty-one people have tested positive of COVID-19 in Maharashtra till Saturday, while a 71-year-old man, who had returned from Saudi Arabia and was suspected to have coronavirus infection, died during treatment in Buldhana district. Written by Tabassum Barnagarwala | Mumbai | Published: March 15, 2020 3:16:05 am Meanwhile, the ambulance that transported the businesswoman on March 12 has been fumigated as a precaution. (File) Suspecting that she may have been afflicted by coronavirus disease, a middle-aged businesswoman on landing at Mumbai airport from Frankfurt, Germany, checked into a hotel in Navi Mumbai to undergo self-imposed quarantine instead of going home. With the number of COVID-19 cases on the rise, civic officials have hailed the woman for showing the right attitude towards avoiding community transmission.  Thirty-one people have tested positive of COVID-19 in Maharashtra till Saturday, while a 71-year-old man, who had returned from Saudi Arabia and was suspected to have coronavirus infection, died during treatment in Buldhana district. According to civic officials, the woman was on a business trip to Frankfurt. While she had no fever when she landed at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport on March 11 and was cleared thermal scanning, she suffered breathlessness on leaving the airport. The woman, officials said, decided against going to her residence in Ulhasnagar to prevent the possible transmission of the infection to her family members and neighbours. Instead, she booked a cab and travelled to Navi Mumbai and checked into a hotel in Kopar Khairane. Dr Santosh Revankar, deputy executive health officer in BMC, said one of her relatives had reached out to him and informed him about her symptoms. “We immediately decided to admit her to Kasturba Hospital and arranged for the logistics to shift her there,” Revankar said. On March 12, a 108-ambulance brought her to Kasturba Hospital around 1.50 am and her nasal swab was collected for a test. A real-time polymerase chain reaction test is conducted for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 infection. Her samples were tested negative by the evening and she was discharged later Thursday. “But it shows how aware and responsible she is,” Revankar, who is also handling airport screening of travellers, said. Passengers are only screened for fever at the airport, but for other symptoms a person has to self-report, he added. Dr Jayanthi Shastri, head of Kasturba Hospital laboratory, said citizens who have a travel history to coronavirus-affected countries should practice social distancing. “Only then can we control the outbreak. Government alone cannot do everything,” Shastri said. The government in Italy — one of the countries worst affected by COVID-19 — is charging people with an attempt to murder if they refuse to go to quarantine centres. While India’s Epidemic Disease Act, 1987, allows penalisation for disobeying government orders during an epidemic, civic officials said they are yet to follow Italy’s example and stringently charge people who do not present themselves for quarantine. On Saturday morning, police traced four suspected patients of coronavirus disease, who had reportedly escaped from an isolation facility in Nagpur’s Mayo hospital a night ago, and sent back to the isolation facility. Three patients, who reportedly escaped from an isolation centre in Ahmednagar Saturday, were also brought back by the police. Meanwhile, the ambulance that transported the businesswoman on March 12 has been fumigated as a precaution.

The issue date has been extended by five business days to March 16. The price band has been revised to Rs 294-300 per share compared with the original band of Rs 295-300 apiece. The public offering of 4.82 million shares – excluding the anchor allotment – was covered 50% after receiving bids for nearly 2.41 million shares at the end of Friday, stock-exchange data showed. After staying on the sidelines on the first two days, qualified institutional buyers (QIBs) jumped into action and bid for nearly 88% of the shares reserved for them. The portion of shares reserved for retail investors was covered 38.25% while non-institutional investors bid for 25.6% of the shares set aside for them. The timing of Antony Waste’s IPO overlapped with that of the Rs 10,354-crore share sale of SBI Cards & Payment Services Ltd, but more importantly by concerns over a slowdown in economic growth on the back of the coronavirus outbreak and the Yes Bank saga that have rattled the stock markets. Antony Waste, which counts US billionaire Paul Singer’s hedge fund Elliott Management Corp as its backer, raised Rs 60.94 crore ($8.32 million) from anchor investors on Tuesday by allotting shares at the lower end of the Rs 295-300 price band. It is seeking a valuation of Rs 802.66 crore ($111 million) via the IPO. The company had already trimmed its offering size compared with its earlier proposal when it filed its draft prospectus. The IPO now comprises a fresh issue of shares worth Rs 35 crore against an earlier plan to raise Rs 43.5 crore. In addition, its existing Mauritius-based shareholders will now sell 5.7 million shares against 9.44 million shares proposed earlier. At the upper end of the price band, the IPO size is pegged at Rs 206 crore against the earlier estimates of Rs 300 crore. Leeds (Mauritius) Ltd, Tonbridge (Mauritius) Ltd, Cambridge (Mauritius) Ltd and Guildford (Mauritius) Ltd are selling shares in the IPO. These firms are backed by New York-based Elliott Management, which manages about $40 billion in assets. Elliott is the world’s largest activist fund in terms of assets under management. Activist hedge funds are typically geared towards unlocking shareholder value. According to Elliott’s website, the firm employs a multi-strategy trading approach and focuses on investing in distressed securities, equity-oriented deals, hedge/arbitrage, and commodities trading. It also looks at debt, private equity, private credit and real estate-related securities. Equirus Capital is the sole merchant banker mandated to manage and arrange the share sale. Incorporated in January 2001, Antony Waste offers solid waste collection, transportation, and processing and disposal services. Since its inception, the company has undertaken more than 25 projects, of which 14 are ongoing. Municipal corporations in cities and districts such as Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Thane, Ulhasnagar, North Delhi, Greater Noida and Mangalore are some of the company’s key public clients.

2020-03-05Only 12,000 homeless in city, claims survey - Mumbai Mirror
Only 12,000 homeless in city, claims surveyYou are in an offline modeOnly 12,000 homeless in city, claims surveyBy Shruti GanapatyeShruti Ganapatye, Mumbai Mirror | Updated: Mar 5, 2020, 08:45 ISTPrint this articleReduce font sizeIncrease font sizeShareA govt offical admitted there were ‘reservations’ about the survey (Photo by Satish Malavade)Commissioned by state govt and BMC on orders of SC, the survey says there are only 21,000 homeless people in the entire state. A first-of-its kind survey of homeless people in Mumbai and across Maharashtra, commissioned by the state government and the BMC, has kicked off a controversy because it claims that there are only 21,000 homeless people in the entire state and only 11,915 in Mumbai. The most recent census, conducted in 2011, said there were 57,415 homeless people in Mumbai alone. The survey, which Mirror has accessed, was conducted from August 2019 by Hyderabad based firm VMax in 250 local urban bodies including Mumbai, Thane, Kalyan, Ulhasnagar and Vasai-Virar. It said, "Greater Mumbai has 11,915 homeless people, of which 1,058 are in Mumbadevi, 1,055 are in Fashion Street, 656 at JJ Hospital, 430 at Baroda Street, 329 in Chandanwadi area and 449 in Kumbharwada. In Kalyan, 228 homeless people were found, in Navi Mumbai 103, Panvel 169, Pune 1,060, Thane 147, Ulhasnagar 86, and Vasai-Virar 121." In about 20 small towns such as Alibaug, Ashta and Bhor the survey found no homeless people at all. However, activists said the survey vastly underestimated the number of homeless people. Brijesh Arya from Homeless Collective, a group fighting for the rights of the homeless, said, "There is a huge difference between the number of homeless people in the census and in the latest survey. The survey might have not been carried out the way it should have been. We need to discuss the matter with the government. Our only aim is to give shelters to homeless people and these numbers are useful to know the exact homeless population." Arya is also a member of the State Level Shelter Monitoring Committee appointed by the SC. Ujwal Uke, who heads the State Level Shelter Monitoring Committee, admitted there were “reservations” about the survey and said the government would discuss the matter this month. The survey was conducted on the directions of the Supreme Court, with the aim of determining how many night shelters the state needs for its homeless population. The issue got an impetus in 2017, when a committee appointed by the Supreme Court visited the city and expressed dissatisfaction with the poor condition of its shelter homes. Mumbai currently has 19 BMC-run shelters, 12 of which are specifically for children. The remaining seven, ostensibly for the homeless, do not fit the definition of shelters laid down by National Urban Livelihood Mission (NULM), which says shelters should be open at all times and cater for free to anyone who is homeless. Last year, the BMC issued an expression of interest to construct eight shelters at Sward (Bhandup), L-ward (Kurla) and R-central ward (Borivali). The lack of proper shelters for the homeless is a perennial problem in Mumbai, especially during the monsoon, when even living on the streets is not an option. Some activists say the city’s homeless population could be as high as 2.5 lakh – far too many even for the 33 shelters proposed in the BMC’s development plan. As per the Supreme Court’s guidelines, there should be one shelter per one lakh population. Going by this, with a population of 1.25 crore, Mumbai should have at least 125 shelters.

The public offering of 4.82 million shares, excluding the anchor allotment, was covered nearly 9% after receiving bids for 429,600 shares at the end of the first day, stock-exchange data showed. Qualified institutional buyers didn’t bid for a single share. The portion of shares reserved for retail investors was covered 12.43% while non-institutional investors bid for 12.85% of the shares set aside for them. The timing of Antony Waste’s IPO overlaps with that of the Rs 10,354 crore share sale of SBI Cards & Payment Services Ltd and comes at a time when Indian and global stock markets have been rattled by concerns over a slowdown in economic growth on the back of the coronavirus outbreak. Antony Waste, which counts US billionaire Paul Singer’s hedge fund Elliott Management Corp as its backer, raised Rs 60.94 crore ($8.32 million) from anchor investors on Tuesday by allotting shares at the lower end of the Rs 295-300 price band. Antony Waste is seeking a valuation of Rs 802.66 crore ($111 million) via the IPO that closes on Friday. The company has trimmed its offering size compared with its earlier proposal when it filed its draft prospectus. The IPO now comprises a fresh issue of shares worth Rs 35 crore against an earlier plan to raise Rs 43.5 crore. In addition, its existing Mauritius-based shareholders will now sell 5.7 million shares against 9.44 million shares proposed earlier. At the upper end of the price band, the IPO size is pegged at Rs 206 crore against the earlier estimates of Rs 300 crore. Leeds (Mauritius) Ltd, Tonbridge (Mauritius) Ltd, Cambridge (Mauritius) Ltd and Guildford (Mauritius) Ltd are selling shares in the IPO. These firms are backed by New York-based Elliott Management, which manages about $40 billion in assets. Elliott is the world’s largest activist fund in terms of assets under management. Activist hedge funds are typically geared towards unlocking shareholder value. According to Elliott’s website, the firm employs a multi-strategy trading approach and focuses on investing in distressed securities, equity-oriented deals, hedge/arbitrage, and commodities trading. It also looks at debt, private equity, private credit and real estate-related securities. Equirus Capital is the sole merchant banker mandated to manage and arrange the share sale. Incorporated in January 2001, Antony Waste offers solid waste collection, transportation, and processing and disposal services. Since its inception, the company has undertaken more than 25 projects, of which 14 are ongoing. Municipal corporations in cities and districts such as Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Thane, Ulhasnagar, North Delhi, Greater Noida and Mangalore are some of the company’s key public clients.

BJP puts proposal to appreciate CM Uddhav Thackeray for his stand on CAA; Shiv Sena opposesTop Searches:Order TOI NewspaperUddhav ThackerayCoronavirus in MumbaiAnil DeshmukhMaharashtra Suicide CasesBJP puts proposal to appreciate CM Uddhav Thackeray for his stand on CAA; Shiv Sena opposesPradeep Gupta | TNN | Mar 4, 2020, 20:46 ISTMaharashhtra CM Uddhav Thackeray.KALYAN: Sending Shiv Sena corporators into a tizzy over the Citizenship Amendment Act, the BJP corporators from Ulhasnagar on Wednesday put a resolution in general body meeting of Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation (UMC) to appreciate chief minister Uddhav Thackeray for his stand on CAA. However, Shiv Sena corporators opposed BJP's resolution saying BJP is doing publicity stunt over the issue. BJP corporators then withdrew the resolution but accused the Shiv Sena of compromising the Hindutva agenda and working under Congress-NCP's pressure. The incident came to light on Wednesday during the general body meeting when BJP corporator Pradeep Ramchandani put a private resolution asking others to appreciate Uddhav Thackeray for his stand on CAA. While putting the resolution, Ramchandani said, "We are happy that our beloved CM supported CAA by saying the law will not affect any Indian’s citizenship as it is a law to give citizenship and not to take citizenship of anybody.” Ramchandani further said, "The CM Thackeray has taken a stand on the issue and this is the reason we wanted to pass a resolution appreciating him.” Interestingly, Ramchandani's resolution was opposed by Shiv Sena corporator Rajendra Chaudhari and Dhananjay Bodare who accused the BJP of doing stunt over issue and said that instead of bringing proposal on CAA, BJP should bring a resolution to appreciate the CM for the work he has done across Maharashtra since taking charge. The resolution was also opposed by Shiv Sena's allies Congress and Republican Party of India. Talking to TOI, Manoj Lassi, BJP corporator, said, "The Shiv Sena corporators’ move against their own CM and party president shows that the party is working under much pressure from their alliance partners Congress and NCP.” Download The Times of India News App for Latest City News.more from times of india citiesDelhi news todayMumbai RainsBangalore RainsDelhi EarthquakeChennai RainsOdisha Elections 2019Delhi PollutionMumbai FloodsAP Elections 2019Trending TopicsCoronavirus IndiaNirbhaya CaseChandrayaan 3Coronavirus in HyderabadSunil JoshiMS DhoniCoronavirus in IndiaAir India SaleCoronovirus in GurgaonCBSE Science Paper AnalysisLATEST VIDEOSMumbaiWatch: People climb boundary walls to help students cheat during Class 10th exam Maharashtra horror: Rape victim, stripped, beaten and threatened CityOn cam: Man stripped, thrashed brutally and tonsured in Rajasthan over alleged love affair Covid-19: State-level task force constituted to control the situation, says Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal Kuldeep Singh Sengar convicted for death of victim's father in Unnao rape case Pawan Gupta's mercy plea rejected by the President in Nirbhaya case More from TOICoronavirus spread: Foods that can help boost your immunityWhat is Kadaknath Chicken & Why it is so popular?N95 Pollution Masks to protect you from pollution & infectionsAmazon Audible: Listen to the best of audiobooks by starting your free trial todayNavbharat TimesFeatured Today in TravelQuick LinksCoronavirus IndiaDevendra FadnavisCoronavirusAaditya ThackerayMaharashtra GovernmentSharad PawarNCPAjit PawarMumbai weatherSanjay RautDawood IbrahimMumbai MetroUddhav ThackerayShiv SenaGet the appTrending Now in CitiesVaranasi newsShimla newsSrinagar newsPatna newsMeerut newsMadurai newsLucknow newsKanpur newsJammu newsJaipur newsGhaziabad newsFaridabad newsOther Times Group news sitesThe Economic TimesMumbai MirrorIGN IndiaHindi Economic TimesTimes NowI am GujaratPune MirrorTamil SamayamBangalore MirrorMaharashtra TimesTelugu SamayamAhmedabad MirrorGo GreenMiss KyraItsMyAscentNavbharat TimesEducation TimesFILMIPOP HindiBrand CapitalEisamayIndiatimesGujarati Economic TimesVijaya KarnatakaMalayalam SamayamTimes FoodGames AppMX PlayerTimesPointsLiving and entertainmentiDivaMensXP.comFeminaETimesGraziaZoomTravel DestinationsBombay TimesCricbuzz.comFilmfareOnline SongsTVLife & Style Longwalks AppNewspaper SubscriptionFood NewsTimes PrimeWhats Hottop trendsCoronavirus IndiaNirbhaya CaseChandrayaan 3Coronavirus in HyderabadSunil JoshiMS DhoniCoronavirus in IndiaAir India SaleCoronovirus in GurgaonCBSE Science Paper AnalysisAssam TET ResultCoronavirus symptomsEkadashi 2020 DateIPL 2020 ScheduleIPL 2020 Players ListCoronavirus newsHoroscope todayStep by Step Pizza RecipeservicesAds 2 BookBank Exam AppET Money Finance AppCouponDuniaDineoutMagicbricksTechgigTimes JobsBollywood NewsTimes MobileRemit 2 IndiaTC NextAstro SpeakGadgets NowCareersColombiaPopular CategoriesHeadlinesSports NewsBusiness NewsIndia NewsWorld NewsBollywood NewsHealth & Fitness TipsIndian TV ShowsCelebrity Photoshot on the webCoronavirus Mask ProtectionShreya Mishra Sexy VideoRanveer SinghCoronavirus SymptomsMonalisa Sexy VideoCoronavirus TreatmentCoronavirus PreventionRanveer Blames DeepikaShah Rukh KhanTrending topicsNatasa StankovicKareena KapoorAkshay KumarKartik AaryanAngrezi MediumThappad Box OfficeJanhvi KapoorCoronavirus Affects BollywoodShah Rukh KhanSonam KapoorHBD Shraddha DasRangoli ChandelRealme 6 ProVivo Nex 3 5GiQoo Sale TodayAppleWhatsapp Dark ModeAmazon App QuizFollow us onfacebooktwitterrss feedyoutubedownload toi appandroidiphoneBlackBerryipadwindows phoneText resize:aaaAbout us Create Your Own Ad Terms of Use and Grievance Redressal Policy Privacy policy Advertise with us RSS Sitemap Archives Copyright © 2020 Bennett, Coleman & Co.
