On Wednesday, the city of Mumbai reported 15,166 new instances of coronavirus infection in the previous 24 hours. The number of new cases boosted on Wednesday was 39.65% greater than the last day’s total of 10,860 illnesses.

According to The Indian Express, this was the highest-ever single-day increase in coronavirus infections in Mumbai as the epidemic began in the city in January 2020. The previous most enormous single-day surge was on April 4, when the city recorded 11,163 instances.

On Wednesday, three individuals died as a result of the coronavirus, and the city’s recovery rate is presently 90%.

On Wednesday, Maharashtra reported 26,538 new coronavirus infections and eight deaths. The infection rate is 43% greater than it was on Tuesday.

According to researchers at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, the peak of Covid-19 numbers in Mumbai might occur between January 6 and 13. According to the experts, it might take up to a month for the incidences to decrease.

“The peak deaths are projected to be roughly 30 to 50% lower than what was observed during the second (delta) wave,” Sandeep Juneja, senior professor in the institute’s School of Technology and Computer Science, told PTI.

On Monday, the municipal civic government declared that schools would be closed from Tuesday through January 31 for all grades except 10 and 12. It was stated that online classes for Classes 1 through 9 and Class 11 might resume.

Due to a boom in coronavirus infections and the propagation of the Omicron variety, the city police barred people from visiting beaches, open grounds, gardens, parks, or other public locations in the city from 5 pm to 5 am on December 31 until January 15.

According to the order, those who break the regulations would be charged under Section 188 (disobeying a public servant’s declaration) of the Indian Penal Code and the sections of the Epidemic Diseases Act and National Disaster Management Act.
Officials also stated that only 5,104 of the city’s 35,487 hospital beds are filled or less than 15%.
Between December 29, 2021, and January 4, 2022, the total growth rate of COVID-19 cases increased to 0.78 percent, but the caseload doubling rate decreased to 78 days.
In Mumbai, 60,014 COVID-19 tests were administered, the most ever, bringing the total number of tests allocated to 1,39,24,608, according to BMC authorities. Look at the BMC tweet below:
Despite the fact that 714 recovered patients were released from hospitals, Mumbai’s active COVID-19 cases increased from 47,476 to 61,923 within 24 hours.
Mumbai has a total of 7,52,726 recovered patients, with a recovery rate of 90%.
The number of sealed buildings has increased to 462, including 20 containment zones in slums and chawls.
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation, or BMC, has instructed private hospitals in the city to raise its allocation of beds for Covid-19 patients in preparation for the worst-case situation.
According to a News18 storey, BMC commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal has asked 142 private hospitals in Mumbai to restore their maximum number of COVID beds by January 10. If all instructions are followed, BMC officials will begin inspecting private facilities on January 11.
According to BMC authorities, based on the experience in South Africa, where the Omicron variety was initially found, the third wave is likely to last four to five weeks throughout the city.
