1,037 New Covid Cases In Mumbai: Hits Lowest Deaths

Mumbai has reported 1,037 coronavirus cases and 37 deaths in the last 24 hours maintaining a stable decline in infections for the past few days. Maharashtra recorded 24,136 cases and 601 deaths in the last 24 hours.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has announced Covid positivity rate below 5 per cent to be within the safe zone. The dip in cases can be attributed to the state-wide lockdown in Maharashtra that has bore the brunt of the deadly second wave of Covid as it swept the country.

The city reported over 6.99 lakh infections since the beginning of the pandemic. Out of those, over 6.55 lakh patients have recovered and discharged from hospitals. Over 27,000 Covid cases are active in the city.

Mumbai, a populated city, saw an upward trend in Covid cases a month ago and reached numbers that left the healthcare system crippled across the country. The Maharashtra capital saw a shortage of oxygen but controlled the Covid graph with timely solutions.

The city, central to the country’s already battered economy, managed the trajectory of the virus effectively. But it is to be noted that the city has been the epicentre of the virus twice. Mumbai now has over 11,000 oxygen beds, over 2,500 ICU beds and around 1,500 ventilator beds to tackle the outbreak.

The recovery rate stands at 94 per cent in Mumbai and cases are being doubled every 345 days. The city’s largest slum Dharavi reported only seven fresh cases.
