Though the city pooled in 20, 971 cases on Friday, the infection rate has been dipping significantly since then. Mumbai reported 20,318 on Saturday, 19,474 on Sunday and 13,648 on Monday, hitting an even lower tally of 11,647 cases on Tuesday.

This lowering effect was also recorded in the Dharavi hotspot; in the last 24 hours, only 51 infections were reported in the slum region. While these falling numbers indicate the flattening of the third wave, low testing across the city could also factor as a reason for the sharp decline.

On the same scale, the rate has dipped from 30% to 20% in the last 2 days. The total active tally now stands at 1,00,523 cases.
