Coronavirus cases in the city of Mumbai have increased after Diwali and this has raised concerns among the general public and the governance. CM Uddhav Thackeray has asked the state government to ensure public safety, and keeping this in mind, officials have been directed to take strict action against those who flout norms of not wearing a mask or maintaining social distance.

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has been released data on a regular basis, which reveals that the cases have risen after every festival, be it Diwali, Navratri or Ganeshotsav.
