With Abhijit Bangar taking in charge as the New NMMC Commissioner amidst grappling COVID-19 situation, Navi Mumbai seems to glimmer with rays of hope.
Abhijit Bangar in his very first impression to Navi Mumbaikars have proved to be a man who swears and stands by his words, briefing to roll out antigen testings and beefing up COVID-19 proactive measures.
The Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation under the leadership of Abhijit Bangar has successfully launched the antigen testing last week reducing the result timing to 30 minutes.
The NMMC further aims to ramp up the provision of beds and convert 500 beds into oxygen beds at CIDCO’s COVID Care Facility in Vashi, Navi Mumbai.
