dharavi mumbai

The World Health Organization (WHO) on Friday acknowledged the success of the steps followed in Mumbai’s Dharavi to contain the coronavirus, saying community engagement and testing is key to breaking the chain of transmission of the disease.

Dharavi, one of the largest slums in Asia, on Friday reported 12 new cases, taking its tally to 2,359. Dharavi currently has 166 active cases and 1,952 patients have been discharged from hospitals following recovery so far.

WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the examples of Italy, Spain, South Korea and India’s biggest slum showed that however bad a outbreak was, the virus could still be reined in through aggressive action.

“In the last six weeks cases have more than doubled,” Tedros told a virtual press conference in Geneva.

However, “there are many examples from around the world that have shown that even if the outbreak is very intense, it can still be brought back under control,” said Tedros.

“And some of these examples are Italy, Spain and South Korea, and even in Dharavi — a densely packed area in the megacity of Mumbai — a strong focus on community engagement and the basics of testing, tracing, isolating and treating all those that are sick is key to breaking the chains of transmission and suppressing the virus.”

The novel coronavirus has killed at least 555,000 people worldwide since the outbreak emerged in China last December, according to a tally from official sources compiled by AFP on Friday.

Nearly 12.3 million cases have been registered in 196 countries and territories.

“Across all walks of life, we are all being tested to the limit,” Tedros said, “from countries where there is exponential growth, to places that are loosening restrictions and now starting to see cases rise.

“Only aggressive action combined with national unity and global solidarity can turn this pandemic around.”

Delimitation Act 2002 in North East

New Delhi July 10 : The Supreme Court on Friday sought a response from Centre and Assam government on a plea by the state”s AIUDF party, seeking to defer the delimitation of Assembly and Parliamentary constituencies in the state.

A bench, headed by Chief Justice S.A. Bobde and comprising Justices R. Subhash Reddy and A.S. Bopanna, after brief hearing, issued notice.

“The decision to conduct the pending process of delimitation of Assembly and Parliamentary constituencies, is not only an arbitrary and hasty decision, but stands contrary to the very idea behind conducting delimitation inasmuch as the present delimitation exercise is sought to be conducted on the basis of Census 2001, while Census 2011 has already been conducted and Census 2021 is underway,” said the plea filed by the All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF).

The petition sought quashing of February 28 order which rescinded the February 8, 2008 notification that had deferred the process of delimitation in Assam. The petitioner has urged the apex court to defer the delimitation exercise until the Covid-19 pandemic is over.

The plea contended that the NRC for Assam is yet to be completed and the delimitation process was earlier deferred in 2008 on the grounds that the 2001 census was outdated. The process of delimitation in Assam, in 2008, had invoked strong opposition in the state, with apprehensions of breakdown of public order.

“Because this exercise has a direct impact on all the citizens of the state of Assam and if an election is held based on a flawed delimitation, it would be very difficult to reverse the damage that it will cause. Because there is no reason for the urgency shown on behalf of the respondents, that although the next census is due, the respondents prefer not to wait for the fresh data but instead insist on relying upon outdated data for delimitation,” said the plea.

The petitioners argued that delimitation is a complex procedure which impacts citizens rights to vote for their preferred candidates for a long time and unless the data is up to date, delimitation of constituencies and redrawing them will cause a large number of voters to be left out. “Delimitation proposed to be carried will change the constituencies and will have an impact on the voting rights and preferences of large number of voters and have great impact on candidates,” said the plea
