COVID-19 Doubling rate in the city reaches 111 days

Over the last few days, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has been successful in controlling the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in the district. Reports released on May 3, 2021, showed that the coronavirus cases recorded on that day were below the 3000-mark, whereby, as many as 2,662 new corona cases were reported in the city until 6 pm.

Furthermore, a total of 5,746 COVID-19 patients with were discharged from the hospital after the treatment. Currently, records show that a total of 54,143 patients are active in Mumbai and out of 6,58,866 coronavirus patients, over 5.89 lakh patients have recovered and returned home, taking the recovery rate to 89 per cent.

With 78 COVID-19 related deaths on Monday, the death toll in the city reached 13,408 in total. Meanwhile, the COVID-19 growth rate in Mumbai, from April 26 to May 2, 2021 was observed to be 0.61 per cent. However, on Monday, the doubling rate in Mumbai was reported to be 111 days, and this has brought a sigh of relief for Mumbaikars.

Meanwhile, scientists from the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research have studied the coronavirus infection in Mumbai and presented some conclusions. According to the findings, over two million people were vaccinated in Mumbai in a month and no new strains were introduced. Furthermore, if the vaccinations continue in the same manner, the mortality rate is likely to reduce significantly by June 2021. Experts have suggested that the schools in Mumbai could start from July 1, 2021.

At present, BMC is emphasizing vaccination in Mumbai, and though limited stocks of vaccines are available, the civic body has been working hard to vaccinate citizens between the ages of 18 and 44. On the other hand, the drive is being planned efficiently for citizens above the age of 45 and for those taking the second dose of the vaccine at selected locations.
