New Delhi: Mumbai reported 10,661 new COVID-19 cases on Saturday, logging around 5.8 per cent decline in infections as compared to yesterday. The positivity rate also dipped slightly to 19.54 per cent. The financial capital reported 11 new coronavirus-related deaths, the highest single-day toll since July 29 last year. As many as 21,474 patients were discharged, taking the total of recoveries to 8,99,358.

On Friday, Mumbai reported 11,317 fresh Covid-19 cases, of which 84 per cent of the patients were asymptomatic. The total number of active Covid cases stood at 84,352 as of Friday evening. The positivity rate is down to 20.6 per cent as compared to Thursday’s 21.73 per cent.

Mumbai on Friday reported nine fresh deaths linked to COVID-19, the highest single-day fatalities since August 11, 2021, and 11,317 new cases, down 17.60 per cent from the previous day, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) said.

With 13,702 cases, Mumbai recorded a drop of 16.55 per cent in daily Covid-19 cases on Thursday from the previous day. However, this drop didn’t reflect in the state’s tally as Maharashtra again reported over 46,406 cases on Thursday.

Till Friday, Mumbai had 65 sealed buildings, but zero containment zones in slums and ‘chawls’ (old row tenements), it said.

The civic body seals buildings if the occupants of 20 per cent of the total number of flats or at least 10 residents are found infected with coronavirus.

Mumbai logged the highest-ever 20,971 COVID-19 cases on January 7, 2022. The earlier one-day high for Mumbai was 11,163 cases, registered on April 4, 2021, during the second wave of the pandemic.
