Meanwhile, the number of patients undergoing treatment in Mumbai is also declining. This number had gone beyond 92,000. It is now 75,740.

On the other hand, joining other states, the state government on Sunday, announced that it will vaccinate all those above 18 years free of cost from May 1. In addition, Cabinet Minister Nawab Malik stated that the government plans to float a global tender to attract international vaccines as part of the state's immunisation drive. Clarifying that the Centre will not offer free vaccines to those below 18 years, he added that currently Covishield cost INR 400/dose and Covaxin INR 600/dose for the state government while Centre's procurement was at INR 150/dose.

Furthermore, in order to curb the instances of coronavirus cases, state-wide section 144 has been imposed and night curfew from 8 PM to 7 AM, with movement being barred in public places without valid reasons, except people in essential services.
