Mumbai records 762 COVID-19 cases, 19 deaths; positivity rate dips
The COVID-19 infection tally in Mumbai on Friday increased by 762 and the death toll went up by 19. The caseload in the city thus rose to 7,19,941 and death toll to 15,266, said the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).
The improved situation in terms of positivity rate and oxygen bed occupancy should qualify the city for `level 1' in the Maharashtra government's five-level categorization, but the BMC indicated that existing restrictions of level 3 category would not be eased immediately.
