The Maharashtra government on 6 May 2020 issued a notification making it mandatory for private doctors in Mumbai to report to hospitals for treatment of coronavirus patients.

The administration has asked private doctors who are below 55 yrs of age and not having any comorbidity to report with immediate effect to COVID-19 dedicated hospitals for treatment of patients. The doctors have been asked to work for 15 days to provide treatment to the patients who have contracted the virus.

However, the government took cognizance of the doctors who may be in the high-risk category of contracting the virus. It has therefore given an exemption to those private doctors who are 55 years and above and have comorbidities.

All the doctors are required to submit a form in which they have to fill in details proving their eligibility, Maharashtra Medical Council registration number, current working place, and place for posting. The doctors have to submit the e-mailed forms to the BMC's Protocol Officer.
