Mumbai : Corona outbreak is on the rise in the state and the incidence has gone up to around 11 per cent. The highest increase in the number of patients during the last week was in Pune and Raigad districts. With the exception of Mumbai, Thane, Pune, Raigad and Palghar, the incidence has almost doubled in other districts across the state. Therefore, Corona is now spreading rapidly not only in Mumbai and nearby districts but also in rural areas. However, the number of hospitalized patients has not increased much.

With the exception of these five districts with the highest number of patients, 779 new cases were detected in the second week of June. But in the last week, it has almost doubled to 1,473 patients. In other districts, the number of patients has increased by about 89 per cent in a week.

The prevalence of corona in rural areas has also increased, which has led to an increase in the number of cases in other districts. On June 5, the incidence was less than one per cent in 25 districts across the state. In 15 of these districts, the proportion has gone up to about 1.5 per cent and in ten districts it is less than one per cent. Since the order to increase the number of tests in June, the average number of daily tests across the state has gone up from 25,000 to 40,000.

Quadruple the number of patients undergoing treatment

But as the incidence has been increasing rapidly in the last 15 days, the number of patients undergoing treatment has gone up to around 25,000.

There has also been a slight increase in the number of critically ill patients. But the figure is still around one per cent. The number of patients on artificial respiration has increased from three to 22 in the last 15 days.
