The number of coronavirus cases in the country's financial capital Mumbai is increasing day by day. Mumbai's COVID-19 tally rose to 78,708 on Wednesday with the addition of 1,511 new cases, while the death of 75 more patients took the toll to 4,629, the city civic body said.
State Covid-19 task force chief, Dr Sanjay Oak, has tested COVID-19 positive for the second time after he suffered breathlessness during a video-conference with experts on Monday. Oak had contracted the coronavirus disease last month and was initially admitted to Prince Aly Khan Hospital in the city.
He is currently undergoing treatment at Fortis Hospital in Mulund. His condition is stable and will be discharged soon. Dr Rahul Pandit, his treating doctor, said he remains stable and is recovering. “He is on oxygen support right now,” Pandit said.
