In the midst of all the harrowing news with regards to the coronavirus, things have been looking up with respect to certain things in the city of Mumbai. Shiv Sena MLA Aaditya Thackeray had earlier taken to Twitter to share good news from the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation.

The doubling rate of Mumbai was 24.5 yesterday afternoon which happens to be far better than the national average of 16. The death rate in the city happens to be 3 per cent which is almost equal to the national average. Meanwhile, the discharge rate is 44 per cent with Dharavi's doubling days being at 42 days. In other good news, no new coronavirus cases and deaths have been reported among cops in the last 24 hours as per the Maharashtra Police.

Till now about 34 police personnel have succumbed to the deadly disease. Dharavi, one of the largest slums in Asia has witnessed a reduction in the growth of active cases of coronavirus and deaths. According to the data shared by the BMC, the first case was reported in Dharavi on April 1 after which it emerged as a major COVID-19 hotspot in Mumbai. There are 1912 novel coronavirus cases in Dharavi out of which 939 persons have recovered until now.

However, not a single COVID-19 death has been recorded in the slum since the month of May. Only 13 cases were reported on June 7 as compared to 34 cases on June 1. Moreover, 23, 17, and 10 COVID-19 cases were recorded in Dharavi on June 4, 5, and 6 respectively.

As a part of the “Mission Begin Again” in Maharashtra, restrictions on movement were eased from Monday. Workplaces have started functioning in the Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC) and Lower Parel and shops in key market areas of Dadar, Colaba and Kurla have also opened in order to conduct businesses. The lockdown which is to remain in the city till June 30, has issued phase-wise reopening of the economy and public activities under 'Mission Begin Again' initiated by the Maharashtra government.
