As the number of coronavirus patients are increasing day by day, lockdown is on in Mumbai. The Break the Chain campaign has been underway since April and restrictions have been tightened to prevent the spread of corona. As a result, the covid cases in Mumbai has come down in the last few days. In the last few days, the positivity and mortality rate in Mumbai has decreased.
Against this backdrop, there is a good news for Mumbaikars. If vaccination in the city continue without any hindrance and no new variants of corona are detected, the situation in Mumbai will return to normal by June, a team of scientists at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research has predicted.
Scientists have made this prediction by analyzing the second wave of corona in Mumbai with the help of mathematical model. In June the situation in the city will return to normal. Scientists have given very important information that schools in the city can be started from July 1.
There was only one variant of the corona virus in the state in February. However, with the resumption of local train services, the virus spread to a large extent. As soon as local services and other things started, a conducive environment was created for the spread of the corona virus.
That's why the second wave hit the city, scientists at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research have reported. Restrictions were much relaxed in February to boost the economy. That's why the situation became critical in March, scientists said.
The current variant of the corona virus is 2 to 2.5 times more contagious than the strain found last year. Outbreaks appear to be exacerbated during March in Mumbai. The new variant may have caused the corona to spread faster, scientists said. According to government figures, the second wave of corona infected 2.3 million people. In April, 1,479 people died.
