On Saturday, September 19, the COVID-19 tally of Dharavi crossed the 3,000 mark with 25 fresh cases of the coronavirus coming to light.

According to data shared by the BMC, the tally reached 3,018 cases on Saturday whereas it had crossed 2,500 cases on July 21. Moreover, 2,585 patients from the area have recovered whereas there are 160 active cases of the coronavirus.

Mumbai, on the other hand, has been clocking a daily caseload of 2,000 or more cases of COVID-19 ever since the government relaxed lockdown norms. However, the BMC has asserted that the rise in cases is due to increased testing and the city is not witnessing a second wave of COVID-19.

In view of the surge in cases of coronavirus, CM Thackeray had earlier stated that the health department will launch a statewide door-to-door campaign. The campaign is to take place in two phases, one from September 15 to October 10 and two, October 12 to October 24.

The goal of the campaign is to push the volunteers who are to impart health education to the citizens, besides conducting door-to-door meetings during which they check the body temperatures of the people along with the oxygen levels, besides other symptoms, including tiredness, throat pain/dry cough, diarrhoea, and loss of smell and taste.
