15 New Cases Reported Overnight

The COVID-19 threat continues its destruction in India as number of cases in Mumbai’s densely populated area, Dharavi slum have risen to 43, with 4 deaths. The officials said that they are boosting up testing in order to contain the spread of the disease. The authorities in India have stepped up measures to close off areas where cases have emerged in Dharavi since the first virus death in early April. Dharavi is one of the largest slums in Asia and is a home for around a million people. 

Moreover, 15 new cases and one death report were reported overnight and the number of infections went up to 43. “ As a result of more positive cases emerged, testing sites have also been set up in recent days to pick up asymptotic carriers of the virus,” said Mumbai Council Spokesperson Vijay Khabale-Patil. Extensive medical camps are also being run in Dharavi and other areas of Mumbai to test more people and make sure carriers are not ignored.

India Fighting against the Pandemic

Number of COVID-19 cases in India has surged drastically in past few weeks. As of 4th April, 9240 coronavirus cases have been reported out of which 331 have lost their lives. The country has been in a nationwide lockdown since 25th March. Some states in the country including Maharashtra, where Mumbai is located said that the strict measures that were due to be lifted on 15th April would be extended. 

The state of Maharashtra has been the most affected by the pandemic, with 1761 cases and 127 deaths. “The state will show the way to the country even in these tough times. On Monday, we will complete five weeks since the first COVID-19 case was reported in the state. We can say that till now we have been successful in preventing the multiplication of number of cases up to some extent,” said Mr. Uddhav Thackeray, Chief Minister of Maharashtra.
