The number of coronavirus cases in Mumbai has increased over the last few days. As of April 30, 2020, COVID-19 cases in Maharashtra hit the 10,000-mark with 10,498 with 459 deaths. On the other hand, the tally of cases in Mumbai reached 7069 with 290 deaths.

Maharashtra has been on top of the list in India ever since the coronavirus lockdown was announced. More than 40 per cent of Mumbai's population lives in slums and the spread of the virus in these closely-knit areas was always a concern, both for the people and the government. After a few cases were identified in Dharavi and Worli, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) along with the state government of Maharashtra decided to seal the areas with an aim to curb the spread further.

Update as of April 28, 2020, states that the BMC has sealed a total of 1391 buildings thereby increasing the list of containment zones in Mumbai, out of which 782 were located in the congested areas.

The current nationwide lockdown is expected to end of May 3, 2020, and while everybody in the country is anticipating some news, Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray along with other Chief Ministers had a meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, to understand how this lockdown can be lifted. As per reports, PM Modi suggested that the lockdown can be lifted first in green zones, where no cases have been observed in the last 28 days. Further, red and orange zones in India will have to wait, as the number of cases has only increased over the due course.

Maharashtra State Health Minister, Rajesh Tope, stated that cities like Mumbai and Pune may have to observe this for few more days, and the officials may take a decision to extend the lockdown in Mumbai this until May 18, 2020. However, no official announcement has been made yet. 

The report released on April 30, 2020, from the health ministry stated that a total of 27 deaths were registered in Maharashtra on one day, out of which 20 were from Mumbai, three from Pune, two each from Thane and Raigad, and one from Nagpur. Further, the data shows that 19 of them were men, and eight were women.

Out of the 1,45,798 tests conducted, 10498 were positive and 1,34,344 samples tested negative. A total of 1773 patients have recovered so far.
