The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Monday decided to discharge asymptomatic patients at the earliest to vacate beds for the patients with more serious symptoms amid the rise in the cases of the coronavirus disease in Mumbai. It said that no asymptomatic Covid-19 patient without any co-morbidities will be allotted a bed in any public or private hospital. It described the “needy” patient as the one with “mild or serious symptoms or one with co-morbidities”. The civic body has also decided to place the order for procuring 150,000 injections of antiviral drug Remdesivir and other medical equipment to avoid any potential shortage of medicines at hospitals, a senior official said.
