It gets very hot in the sun,” said Dr. Palak Kaserwal, who leads a 10-member team of doctors and nurses screening COVID-19 patients in claustrophobic shanties in Mumbai.
Kaserwal emphasized the need for coronavirus screening and subsequent quarantining of COVID-19 patients at Kurar village to contain transmission.

Daksha Patel, local municipal councilor of Kurar village, praised physicians’ resolve and expressed her gratitude to the health workers.
