The capital of Maharashtra recorded 795 new Covid-19 cases taking the active Coronavirus tally to 6,858. Mumbai’s total Coronavirus cases tally stood at 2,84,404.

While Mumbai is witnessing a steady decline in the Coronavirus cases, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) officials were mulling to conduct a review process in the January first week. They will look into the possibility of closing down large treatment facilities that were set up exclusively for Coronavirus infected patients. While such facility at Woli has already been shut, treatment facilities in Bandra Kurla Complex, Dahisar, and Mulund remain operational to date, according to the Indian Express report.

Additional Municipal Commissioner Suresh Kakani has claimed that even if there is a second wave of Coronavirus infections, it would be less severe than the first wave. He also assured that civic bodies will have the capacity to resume the operation at those treatment facilities within 48 hours if required, the IE report says.
