After mapping of the residence of patients who tested positive for coronavirus, the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has now done the same for all COVID-19 related deaths. The civic body uses the details from the initiative – which is part of the Pune Smart City – to implement its strategy in the fight against the pandemic.
Soon after the first positive case was registered in the city, the Command and Control Room of Pune Smart City created a dashboard for mapping of positive cases. The initiative was started with the mapping of the residence of COVID-19 patients on the city map, following which the PMC sealed Kondhwa and the central part of the city, where the maximum number cases had been registered.
Later, the mapping of all COVID-19 related deaths also revealed that maximum casualties were reported from the congested and densely populated parts of the city.
Subsequently, the civic body also started mapping of all those who recovered after testing positive. It highlighted that maximum recovery was reported from Sahkarnagar-Dhankawadi area.
