“During the first and second wave, coronavirus was behind us; but if a third wave comes, we will be behind coronavirus,” said Mayor of Mumbai, Kishori Pednekar, at an event organised on Wednesday by The Free Press Journal and Navshakti at Bandra-Kurla Complex Jumbo COVID centre, to felicitate all COVID-19 warriors who have been working at the facility.

It is the first time any media house has felicitated all the healthcare and frontline workers of a COVID centre, who have been working relentlessly on the frontlines of the war against the COVID-19 pandemic.

The chief guests at the event were Pednekar and Anil Wankhede, Director Land Acquisition, MCGM. The Free Press Journal Group’s Managing Director Ashok Karnani, its Director Abhishek Karnani, and Editor of Navshakti Narendra Kotekar were also present.

All the doctors, nurses, ward boys, technicians, BMC staff, security guards, housekeeping and other support staff at the BKC Jumbo COVID centre were felicitated by the Mayor. The programme was hosted by dietician Madhura Patil.

Mayor Pednekar said since the pandemic started in March 2020, all the healthcare and frontline workers had worked round-the-clock treating patients at the BKC Jumbo COVID centre. Earlier NSCI Dome was the only big jumbo facility, but later, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation also set up the BKC jumbo centre under the supervision of Dr Rajesh Dere, who played a crucial role in managing the centre aimed at ensuring patients get treated on time and get discharged, Pednekar said.

“When the BKC Jumbo COVID Centre was being set up, there were many hurdles but we managed to tackle all the problems. Moreover, so far more than 24,000 COVID-19 patients have recovered and been discharged since the pandemic began. This is only achieved by the dedication of the healthcare workers and frontline workers at the centre,” she said.

Pednekar thanked The Free Press Journal and Dainik Navshakti for coming forward and felicitating the COVID warriors for their tremendous efforts and work during the ongoing pandemic.

“This felicitation is not only of the HCWs and FLWs but it is the felicitation of their families, who have been backbone and support in all possible ways,” she added.

Dr Rajesh Dere, Dean, BKC jumbo centre said all these achievements could not be possible without a good team of doctors, nurses and other staff at the centre. “In the last year everyone has become like a family and felicitating all the staff of the centre is like giving them an honour which will motivate them to do good work in future,” he said.
