At last some good news for Mumbaikars

In a positive development, the doubling rate of coronavirus infection in Mumbai has crossed 100 days for the first time.

The Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai, in a statement, said that the doubling rate now stands at 102.

Our correspondent reports, Mumbai’s civic chief Iqbal Singh Chahal has thanked Mumbaikars for their disciplined efforts to contain the coronavirus pandemic.

In a statement, Mumbai’s civic body has informed that the programmes like ‘Chase the Virus’, ‘Mission Zero’ and the four-fold technique of tracing, tracking, testing and treating have yielded desired results.

While the first confirmed case of COVID-19 was reported on 11th March in the financial capital and the doubling rate stood at three days later that month, the doubling rate has increased to 102 days today.

The statement says that the door to door survey and the awareness campaign conducted under the ‘My Family,

My Responsibility’ programme played a huge role in identifying co-morbid patients and protecting them from the virus.

Right from setting up fever clinics in the initial days to running mobile dispensaries across all the 24 wards of Mumbai, the city has managed to achieve a recovery rate of 88 percent.

While the city continues to record around one thousand new cases every day, the number of active patients currently remains below 20,000.

Meanwhile, India has sustained its trend of maintaining the active cases below the 7.5 lakh mark for the 2nd successive day. 61,775 recoveries have been registered in the last 24 hours in the country whereas the new confirmed cases are only 54,044. This is when 10,83,608 tests have been conducted in the last 24 hours in the country.

The national Case Fatality Rate (CFR) has fallen to 1.51% today. The Centre has advised States/UTs to aim at bringing down the CFR to below 1%. Presently 14 States/UTs are reporting Case Fatality Rate less than 1%. India’s total recoveries stand at 67,95,103 today. The higher number of single-day recoveries has resulted in a continuous increase in the national recovery rate, which is fast approaching 89% (88.81%). 77% of the new recovered cases are observed to be concentrated in 10 States/UTs.

Karnataka outnumbered Maharashtra in new recovered cases with more than 8,500 new recoveries. Maharashtra and Kerala both contribute more than 7,000 to the new recoveries. 54,044 new cases were registered in the last 24 hours in the country. 78% of these are concentrated in ten States/UT.
