Corona cases have been registered in almost all of Maharashtra, India. New corona cases in Mumbai have shattered all previous records. On Saturday, Maharashtra recorded 49,447 new cases of Covid-19, the largest number of cases registered in a single day to date.

In light of the number of incidents, the city of Mumbai could be forced to enforce additional restrictions. Religious places can be shut down. The availability of hotel rooms can be expanded by up to 50%.

Whereas, in Delhi within just one month, the number of home isolates in Delhi has increased by eightfold. Just 777 sick people were isolated in their homes on March 2. On 3 April, however, this figure had risen to 6,569. This accounts for more than half of the city’s participating corona patients. According to a Health Department official, the fourth wave of corona in Delhi has yet to be proved successful. It’s fair to say that only a limited number of those who are already affected would need hospitalization. Those individuals are recovering well at home. Besides, this wave has a smaller mortality rate than the prior one.
