Mumbai, the city that has been ravaged by the coronavirus can finally breathe a sigh of relief. The growth rate of COVID-19 in Mumbai has halved. Fifteen days ago, Mumbai's patient growth rate was 6.61 per cent, which has now come down to 3.62 per cent by Thursday.

The growth rate of patients in e-wards including Byculla, Mumbai Central is the lowest at 1.7 per cent. However, the northern part of the state has the highest growth rate of the coronavirus which is 7.4 per cent, including Dahisar. G/North (Mahim, Dadar, Dharavi) has the highest number of coronavirus cases with 3,258 patients. However, these areas have also succeeded in stopping the growth rate of patients. The growth rate of the patient here is 2.6 per cent. L ward of Kurla has the highest number of 2847 patients after G/North.

A total of 44,931 coronavirus patients have been found in the Mumbai Municipal Area. Out of which 18,096 patients have conquered the coronavirus. While 1,465 patients have died. Currently, 25,364 patients are undergoing treatment in the hospital.

As the number of novel COVID-19 cases in the country has been rising steadily, between eight and nine thousand a day at the moment, the growth rate has been coming down, nationally as well as in most of the states which have the maximum number of cases.

One of the main reasons for the decline in growth at the national level is the fact that Maharashtra, which accounts for more than a third of all cases in India, had been slowing down for weeks now. This has happened at a rate much faster than what is observed at the national level. Till the middle of May, Maharashtra’s growth was about one per cent higher than the country as a whole. As that started to decline, it brought down the national growth as well. On June 2, Maharashtra’s growth rate was 4.05 per cent, well below the national rate.
