Pimpri, 25 April 2021: Due to the growing number of Coronavirus disease (COVID19) patients, Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) today issued an order to all the housing societies to convert their clubhouses into isolation centre for COVID positive patients.


In his order, PCMC Commissioner Rajesh Patil said, “The number of patients is increasing. Many people do not have adequate rooms for home isolation. Therefore, to prevent the infection to other members of the family and neighbours, the patients can be kept in the clubhouses. Therefore, housing societies should convert their clubhouses into COVID19 isolation centres for COVID patients.”
