Coronavirus cases in Mumbai are rising at an alarming rate
Everyday, there are more than 1,500 new cases in Mumbai alone, which in itself is rather alarming. In a city of 1.85 crores, more than 3 lakh people are infected and if proper precautions are not taken, things are going to go from bad to worse.
As of now, the mortality rate in Maharashtra stands at about 3.03%. Readers should also note that coronavirus reinfection is a very real thing and Mumbai is already seeing its first few cases of reinfection.
With the series of reversal of lockdowns, people are once again returning back to their normal lives. In Mumbai, a city where cases are so high, the lifting of restrictions could lead to life threatening scenarios. At any rate, as of now, schools, colleges, cinemas and other similar public places will remain shut until the end of this month.
