MUMBAI (MUMBAI) – In the recent surge of Covid cases, the state recorded the highest single-day count (5,218), with Mumbai accounting for nearly half of the cases (2,479) on Thursday.Mumbai has seen another death as a result of the latest tragedy in June, totaling 23 injuries, down from the total number of 11 deaths in March, April, and May.On Thursday, Navi Mumbai recorded its first Covid death after 4 months when a 30-year-old congenital heart patient died from Covid-related injuries.However, health authorities aren't worried about Thursday's rise, which they attribute to the inclusion of some backdated cases.

As a result of Thursday's Covid update, some old cases were included, according to state surveillance officer Dr Pradip Awate.For the past few days, the case surged in both state and city.The caseload in Maharashtra dropped 60% on Wednesday to 3,260 cases, while Mumbai's total was 1,648 cases.After hovering between 85 and 95 for a few days, daily hospitalization increased to 109.

Look at the weekly Covid count, not the daily ups and downs.Even as the state and the city saw an increase in Covid infections, the daily test positive rate fell from 20% on Wednesday to 12% on Thursday.The weekly trends, according to a city civic official, should be considered in determining the Covid surge.If we have a lower caseload at the end of the week than last week, the overall increase is plateauing, according to the official.

Since June 14, the city has had a death every day.After almost four months of zero accidents, the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) region announced its first Covid-related death on Thursday.The last Covid death was recorded on February 26.The total number of NMMCs affected by the pandemic is now 2,050.

On Thursday, the highest single-day cases (389) were recorded in NMMC, just like Mumbai.The total number of registered cases has increased to 1,934, down from just 18 earlier this month.In the last fortnight, more than 4,000 new cases have been reported, the majority of which are asymptomatic or with mild symptoms.Nevertheless, a large number of the affected patients are in home isolation.

The remaining patients are in private hospitals.In Navi Mumbai, between 200 and 350 new cases of Covid have been reported in the past one week.
