With the number of COVID-19 cases being recorded in Maharashtra decreasing with every passing day, the second wave of the coronavirus is coming to a halt. 

Moreover, currently, in 18 of the 24 wards of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), there is not a single containment zone left. However, there are 22 restricted areas in 6 wards. Therefore, Mumbai is on its way to free itself of the deadly illness.

How many containment zones remain and in which part of Mumbai?

K / East - Dark East - 8

R / South - Kandivali - 6

S - Bhandup - 3

T - Mulund - 2

According to reports, on February 2, zero cases were reported in Dharavi following which cases started to rise steadily. Between March and April, when the pandemic was at its peak, nearly 70-90 cases were being recorded daily on average in the biggest slum area of Mumbai. Moreover, between May 31 and June 3, Dharavi has recorded only two-three cases daily. Civic officials attributed the steady decline in cases with the receding case tally in Mumbai.
