In a seemingly desperate move, the Maharashtra government has deputed three IAS officers to three major civic-run hospitals in the city for effective management of the outbreak. The responsibility of Nair Hospital has been given to Madan Nagargoje (IAS:2007) while Ajit Patil (IAS:2007) will oversee the functioning of KEM Hospital. Balaji Manjule (IAS:2009) has been deputed to Sion Hospital.

State chief secretary Ajoy Mehta deputed the IAS officers for effective control and management of these hospitals, which are handling most of the coronavirus cases.

The responsibility of state-run GT Hospital and JJ Hospital has been given to Sushil Khodvekar (IAS:2011) apart from this, who is deputy secretary in the school education department. Mumbai, one of the top coronavirus hotspots in the county, has so far recorded nearly 42,000 positive cases and around 850 deaths.
