According to the official bulletin, Mumbai also conducted 9,478 Covid tests in the past one day. New coronavirus cases are gradually inching up in the city though the number of daily tests was still under 10,000.

Speaking at a function on Tuesday, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had appealed to people to keep wearing face masks while outdoors as the Covid-19 threat was not yet over. The state government had lifted all coronavirus-related curbs, including mask mandate, in the first week of April after the third wave of the pandemic ebbed.

As many as 102 more people tested positive for Covid-19 across Mumbai in the last 24 hours, taking the infection tally to 10,59,433, said the city civic department on Tuesday.

This is the biggest jump in new coronavirus infections in the metropolitan since 27 February, when it had logged 103 cases. Thereafter, the city has been recording new cases in double-digits, barring 2 March when 100 infections were reported.

Notably, the daily Covid-19 cases more than doubled in the last three days in Mumbai. On Sunday, the city had registered 45 cases.
