The number of cases of coronavirus that witnessed a rise in September is now said to be declining, as per reports.

Currently, the doubling rate in Mumbai happens to be 102 days. In August it happened to be 93 days. However, post the Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations, approximately 2,000 patients were recorded every day in September.

Moreover, in 3 out of 24 wards in Mumbai, the doubling rate is more than 150 days. In Worli, Prabhadevi, the maximum duration is 175 days whereas the doubling rate happens to be 160 days in Byculla and 157 days in Paral-Shivdi. Meanwhile, on Wednesday, 1,609 fresh patients tested positive in the city of Mumbai whereas 894 patients recovered from the disease. In Mumbai, 88 per cent of patients have been cured so far. At present, 19,245 patients are undergoing treatment whereas 9,869 people have succumbed to the disease.

On the other hand, after being off tracks for nearly seven months, Mumbai's Monorail between Chembur and Sant Gadge Maharaj Chowk resumed operations on Sunday with limited services. The Monorail got back on tracks a day ahead of the resumption of Metro services in the city, which commenced services from Monday. The decision was taken by the state government in a bid to reduce the overcrowding in the local trains in Mumbai.
