At the event held in Satra Park CHS in Borivali, Shetty also inaugurated the society's own 12-bed COVID care center, following an appeal by him to the BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).

Present on the occasion was local BJP legislator Sunil Rane and other dignitaries.
Shetty has been instrumental in setting up a fully-equipped COVID center at Pawan Dham in Kandivali West under the auspices of Jain spiritual leader Namramuni Maharaj and helped increase bed capacities at various COVID care centers in private and public hospitals in Borivali and Dahisar suburbs, among the new hot spots.
