The world is fighting the fight against a deadly virus. Almost every country is dealing with bubbling cases and drying out resources, medical infrastructure and vaccination. India, standing in the top three countries, constantly for months now, is one of the worst hit countries. The sub-continent with one of the highest populations in the world, people are piling over each other in queues in hospitals to find medical assistance for their loved ones. Maharashtra, home to the most populated slum in the world, at the heart of it – Mumbai – has been hit the worst. On the top of every graph and record for COVID-19, this city is dealing with the harshest of this tragedy. While the administration is doing its best to manage the disease, with an increase in cases and the scarcity of hospital ICU beds, supportive medicine, and vaccine doses, the health system is crashing – all at once and fastest around the city of dreams, Mumbai. Teams at Your-Space have decided to stand up and join this fight against this pandemic by contributing their bit to its management. We are opening up our otherwise student homes to COVID-19 patients and/or people under threat/possible contact so they can peacefully isolate and manage their health.

COVID-19 is a rapidly transmitting infectious disease caused by a coronavirus. Based on research and studies so far, the known mediums of the spread of COVID-19 are through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes. The virus enters the body via a person’s nose, mouth, and/or eyes. Some recent studies even suggest that the virus may even be airborne and can spread through fine infected droplets that remain suspended in the air in closed air-conditioned environments of spaces like workplaces, cars, cabs, buses, shopping malls, and theatres due to the absence of cross-ventilation, even if people are not in direct contact with an infected person.

Mumbai and COVID-19
As of 21st April 2021, Mumbai has had a total of 5,94,059 cases with approximately 83,937 active cases. While the different parts of the country are carrying out their vaccine drives, Mumbai’s vaccination drive has come to a halt. Earlier in April 2021, several small and private COVID-19 vaccination centers in Mumbai were shut because of the unavailability of the Covid-19 vaccine, which includes Covishield and Covaxin, according to the details shared by the BMC spokesperson.
The city is not only facing a shortage of vaccines, but also oxygen tanks, ICU beds, and other health-related support systems – same as the country. The GOvernment of Maharashtra has imposed statewide Section 144 along with other restrictions till the date 1st May in the wake of the situation. The city is likely to face a strict lockdown for 15 days as the cases increase at an unmanageable rate.
COVID-19 and Your-Space
Rising to the need of the hour, Your-Space has offered to convert its student accommodation homes to Isolation Homes for people looking to safely quarantine in Mumbai. With the increase in COVID testing and subsequent rate of transmission and infection, the shortage of beds in the city’s hospitals and care facilities is not only expected but also justified. Joining the league and following the lead of Quarantine hotels in Mumbai, Your-Space has stepped up in today’s testing times.
Our services have been converted into a system of catering to people who have been infected or are under the threat/scare of being in contact with an infected person and are actively looking to quarantine/isolate in the city – away from home, family and friends. Our otherwise luxuriously beautiful student accommodation homes have been prepared and re-equipped based on the needs of a person hit by the threat/infection of the virus.
