Taking a jibe at the opposition BJP's claims of Maharashtra's COVID-19 deaths being underreported, Mumbai Mayor Kishori Pednekar said that there are no rivers in Mumbai to dump bodies. Pednekar said, “All Covid deaths in Mumbai are recorded at three places, so the data can't be hidden". Recently, BJP-ruled Bihar and UP were also criticised for under reporting COVID deaths and burying dead bodies along riverside.
Mumbai Mayor Kishori Pednekar has admitted herself to Saifee Hospital on June 29, after she complained a severe pain, possibly due to kidney stone. The Mayor who is also a nurse, had quarantined herself after attending a special COVID-19 camp at Azad Maidan earlier this month, interacting with a few journalists who were positive for the virus, but had tested negative.
