Mumbra, a city and suburb of the Thane district in Mumbai, Maharashtra, has not reported a large number of COVID-19 cases in the recent times which is why there are no hotspots in the area anymore.

A coronavirus hotspot can be described as a limited area where a large number of people have tested positive for COVID-19 in several smaller groups or clusters. Meanwhile, in Thane, due to a large number of COVID-19 cases, the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) on Friday extended the lockdown in Thane city till August 31. With this, the ban on malls, gyms and swimming pools will continue till the end of the month.

TMC Commissioner Vipin Sharma in a statement has said that the decision has been made keeping in view the situation as the number of cases of coronavirus in the area is still not under control. The complete shutdown in Thane was lifted on July 19 as the restrictions remain limited to the containment zones. Now, the lockdown restrictions in containment zones and hotspot areas of Thane city have been extended for another month.

Meanwhile, in a video address, district collector Rajesh Narvekar said exemptions will be given in the non-containment zone areas and the state government guidelines will be applicable in areas falling within the limits of the Thane Rural, Municipality and Nagar Panchayat.

As on Friday, July 31, the cases of coronavirus in the Thane district stood at 85,956, while the toll was at 2,365.
