Coronavirus cases in the state of Maharashtra are declining significantly, and the efforts put by the government, local administration, doctors, healthcare officers, Mumbai police and others, have shown results over the last few months. Data also suggests that the number of newly diagnosed patients is also declining significantly, eventually helping the recovery rate increase.

As of now, the COVID-19 recovery rate in the state is over 90 per cent, and this offers great relief for the citizens and the government.

However, since it is the season of festivals and winter, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has warned the citizens to take care and follow the norms, as there could be a possibility of another wave of COVID infection if the people flout the fundamental rules. Experts have observed a rise in cases after Ganeshotsav, and are expecting the same after Diwali, as people have been crowding the markets and public places for shopping.

Observing the same, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) Commissioner has asked the teams to stay alert and keep a check on the public, and impose fine if people do not follow the directives.

A report released by the public health department states that a total of 7,809 patients discharged from hospitals on November 12, 2020, and till date 16,05,064 COVID-19 patients have recovered from the infection, taking the recovery rate to 92.44 per cent. Furthermore, 4496 new cases were diagnosed in the state on Thursday, along with 122 COVID-19 deaths, which moved the case fatality rate to 2.63 per cent. 

Officials have tested a total of 96,64,275 laboratory samples of which 17,36,329 have been tested positive, i.e. 17.97 per cent. Currently, over 8.11 lakh people are under home quarantine and 6,487 people are under the institutional quarantine.

Maharashtra is under a lockdown until November 30, 2020, and despite the same, the state has permitted certain activities to resume under the unlock initiative. Moreover, schools and temples will reopen across Maharashtra after Diwali and guidelines will be issued for the same. Officials from the railways and state government are also planning to allow the general public in the Mumbai Local Trains and the official announcement regarding the same is expected in the next few days.
