The recovery rate in Mumbai at present stands 71%. The doubling rate in the city has also improved. Now the doubling rate stands at 57 days. The BMC has stated that the condition of Mumbai is stable, and under control. The BMC has also stated that around 6000-7000 tests are being conducted in the area each day. It is a relief to see the number of daily reported cases falling behind the grim 1,500 mark it used to overtake earlier.

The focus of BMC remained slum areas, where the possibility of mass spreading is extremely high due to the high population density and lack of hygiene. With the onset of the monsoon season in the state, many diseases and infections are on the rise, hence it is even more pertinent to control the spread of the virus so as to not overburden the healthcare system.

Mumbai and Delhi have had a parallel journey with coronavirus. The unexpected boom of cases was observed in both, and now a simultaneous decline trend is also being witnessed. Many have been speculating whether both have crossed their peak, and if they’re on the way to recovery. It can be very well possible.
