Coronavirus: Dharavi is a huge challenge in efforts to enforce social distancing

Two more people have been found infected with COVID-19 in Dharavi near south Mumbai, taking the total number of positive coronavirus cases to five in the crowded area. The last person to test positive before these two fresh cases was a 35-year-old doctor.

Sources said all of them have been quarantined and people who could have come in contact with them are being traced.
