Stone throwing by Dharavi people of on police:



Dharavi is one of the biggest slum in mumbai and also in asia because of its high population density it is more prone to coronavirus attack which will create disastrous results.The number of people infected with the Corona virus in India has been 1764. With this, the death toll has reached 50. But among these dead was a 56-year-old man who lived in Dharavi, Asia's largest slum. After this, a BMC worker has been confirmed to be infected with Corona virus in Dharavi. The Mumbai administration has since sealed hundreds of flats and shops. Many people have been sent to quarantine facilities. But in the midst of all this, there is news of an attack on a team of doctors engaged in rescue operations in this area. In such a situation, the question arises that what is the meaning of the arrival of Corona virus in the densely populated area.These are not the first cases of people getting infected with the corona virus in the slums of Mumbai. Earlier, in another slum in Mumbai itself, a woman was confirmed to be infected with Corona virus. After this, Worli Koliwadi area of ​​Mumbai has also been sealed.In Dharavi, Mumbai, a person who died of Corona virus-related disease used to run a clothes shop. On March 23, he was shifted to Sion Hospital in Mumbai after complaining of cough etc. But the day the man was reported to be infected with the corona virus, he died the same day. Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope has expressed concern about this death. Talking to the media , Tope says, "Until now, this disease was limited to a particular class. And it should not be spread among the general public. Our aim is also this. The steps we have taken so far, keeping these objectives in mind We had decided to keep it. But when patients come from a densely populated place like Dharavi, then it is a matter of concern for us. " Rajesh Tope has also told that the government will take all the steps related to contact tracing to the protocol as per the protocol.Why is the corona virus dangerous in slums? In the contact tracing process, the Mumbai administration will try to reach all those people who have come in contact with these two people. Since the population of this region is very dense and one person can come in contact with several thousand people in a day. In such a situation, the government will have to isolate or quarantine a large amount of people. With this, the government will have to investigate a large amount of people. But till now the Government of India has been able to test only 38000 samples across the country. Dharavi is the place where more than a million people live in just two square kilometers.Asia's largest slum In India, such a population lives in cities like Benaras, Chandigarh, Allahabad, Gwalior and Ghaziabad. While the area of ​​these cities is 112 square kilometers, 114 square kilometers, 82 square kilometers, 289 square kilometers and 133 square kilometers respectively. The reason for this density of population is that Dharavi is called not only India but the largest slum in Asia. Here thousands of people live in the flats built in a small area. They spend time in narrow streets. Take a bath in one place. And passing time during lockdown. Talking about the social fabric, it is common for people to visit each other's houses several times a day in these areas.Dense population Italy and America are the worst hit by the Corona virus. And in both these countries, the most infected people have been found in densely populated New York and Lombardy. More than 6500 people have died in Lombardy and 1350 in New York City so far. Steven Goodman, a doctor who studies epidemics at Stanford University, believes that under such circumstances, dense populations take the form of an enemy. In an article published in the American newspaper New York Times, Dr. Goodman says, "In these types of situations, dense populations prove dangerous. Areas with large populations where many people are mixing with each other at the same time. There, The virus spreads the fastest. " This thing seems to apply to Dharavi as well.Lack of understanding is a big problem Health workers engaged in the prevention of corona virus across the world are also falling prey to the anger of common people. So far in India, there have been two cases in Indore and Dharavi in ​​which ordinary people attacked the doctors who came for medical screening. Experts believe that for this, lack of understanding among people about fake news and disease is responsible. But the question arises as to what effect the attack on doctors will have on important procedures like contact tracing and screening in densely populated areas. Giridhar Babu, an epidemiologist associated with the Public Health Foundation, believes that it is true that this case has given rise to new challenges. However, he exuded confidence in BMC, saying, "BMC is handling the matter and it is not a matter of concern right now. But there are no two opinions that this would prove challenging procedures like contact tracing."
