According to the data, in October, Maharashtra had recorded 293,960 Covid-19 cases, which dropped by 50.5 per cent in November to 145,490.

Fatalities reported in October were 7,249, which dropped by 49.09 per cent to 3,690 in November. The drop in cases and fatalities is even sharper when compared to September. Besides that, the State surveillance officer Pradeep Awate said the positivity rate in November was 7.7 per cent, which is lower than the positivity rate in April, which was 8 per cent.
