Mumbai's daily coronavirus statistics have brought a huge respite from the active spread of COVID-19 infection in the city. Superseding the number of 876 confirmed cases, recoveries in the city boomed close to a double 1694 cases on Thursday. Though the tallies have shot up drastically after the low-negative-plunge on Wednesday, Mumbai's healing trends guard the city from the suspected 'second wave'.
The Mumbai COVID-19 Update
Remaining in the sub-50 range for over a month now, Mumbai's new 18 deaths took its toll to 10,931, while new cases remained below the 1,000-mark at 878, taking up the tally to 283,696. This restrictive rise of fresh cases in the city has prolonged the case doubling rate, from 200 days to 207 days, given the lowering rate of virus growth- pegged at less than 0.35%. Last week, the average doubling rate of cases has shrunk to195 days, while the average growth rose to 0.35%.
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation has been working with caution to remove the duplicate and outstation tallies from Mumbai's active caseload. The reconciliation process is strictly monitoring the MMR case surge - including Mumbai, which has furnished 28 new deaths, taking the toll to 18,602. With the identification of 1,742 new cases, the total numbers clock over the 6,35,205 mark.
With Mumbai yielding higher recovery trends, the state of Maharashtra too, has started to record an overall decline in the number of active cases as well as new cases of the coronavirus. Though fatalities have boomed past the 100-mark in the state again, the receding growth of the virus in the past week are creating conducive conditions to control infection spikes. Though the road to absolute recovery is still long, the city of Mumbai has taken its first step as the civic, state authorities invest their best to break the chain of coronavirus.
