The city of Mumbai has projected a week-long drop in tally of new coronavirus cases. From October 7 to October 13, a gradual and noticeable fall in the fresh case counts of coronavirus infection has been observed which suggests that Mumbai has managed to control the spread and transmission of the virus. Around 1,325 new coronavirus cases identified on Tuesday in Mumbai, which is also the lowest number since the count 1,190 cases on October 4.
Recovery for Mumbai
Mumbai has set up a benchmarking standard at controlling the spread of the Coronavirus in western India. From being the worst-hit district for continuous months, the downward bend of the infection curve brings respite to the overall health and recovery of the city.
With its controlled protocols of mobility and movement, the city has managed to arrest the spread of the deadly virus. This along with high rate of recovery and a discharge count over 2,646 patients on Tuesday itself has reduced the active cases to negatives in the city. Mumbai has so far recorded 1,98,418 recoveries since the outbreak of the virus. Besides this, the growth rate of the infection has also been stinted at 0.7% which projects the possibility of both, a herd immunity and virus control. The total tally of the city currently stands at 2,32,391 cases.
Though a lukewarm recovery, the falling statistics do shine as a ray of hope for the city of Mumbai. All Mumbaikars are requested to exercise utmost caution and prioritise personal hygiene and cleanliness to maintain and further accelerate the downward trends of infection spread in the city.
