New Delhi, India According to the Maharashtra government’s announcement about the ‘five-level plan’ to relax restrictions in the state, Mumbai’s financial capital began gradually re-opening on Monday (June 7, 2021).
The ‘five-level plan’ has enabled districts to re-open in accordance with the weekly positivity rate and the occupancy of oxygen beds in a specific administrative unit.
Areas with an infection positivity rate of 5% or less and oxygen bed occupancy of less than 25% fall into the first category and can be completely opened up. Areas with a positivity rate of more than 20%, on the other hand, fall into the fifth category, where only essential shops can open and office attendance is limited to 15%.
Accordingly, Mumbai is currently in level 3 and has 16,070 active COVID-19 cases.
