Photos: Mumbai’s Covid-19 case doubling rate improves to over 100 days

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s (BMC) analysis of Covid-19 case data for Mumbai on October 21 showed that the average doubling rate of Covid- 19 cases had risen past 100-days in the city for the first time since the outbreak of the pandemic. The figure rests at 108 days as of October 22. For comparison, the time being taken for Covid-19 cases to double was as low as 3 days in March. The civic body attributes this improvement to the effective implementation of the ‘My Family My Responsibility’ drive and public awareness campaigns about Covid-19.
