Mumbai lockdown news: Today’s updates | Mumbai News


As the Central and state governments allow phase-wise relaxation in curbs to get the life up and running again following over two months of lockdown to prevent the spread of Covid-19, we bring you the latest updates from your city.
*The state on Tuesday recorded 103 fatalities, its second highest after May 29 (116), taking the toll to 2,465. Maharashtra added 2,287 Covid-19 cases, taking its tally to 72,300.
*In a first, the Maharashtra government on Tuesday served showcause notices to four premier private hospitals—Jaslok, Hinduja, Bombay and Lilavati—for failing to allocate adequate beds for Covid and non-Covid patients and allegedly refusing beds. Public health minister Rajesh Tope, who went on a surprise visit, found that hospitals were working at 50% of their strength and most hadn’t displayed their bed strength, occupancy or the chart showing capped treatment charges.
*A 49-year-old traffic constable succumbed to Covid-19 on Monday, becoming the 18th Mumbai Police casualty. Attached to Malad traffic division, he was quarantined as a high-risk contact after his son-in-law, also a policeman, tested positive.
*About a month after the Centre relaxed the Covid-19 lockdown rules, industrial activity statistics show that revival is on the fast track. Barring containment zones in the state, production has resumed in most places.
*The jumbo Covid-19 care facility in Bandra-Kurla Complex, set up by Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), was vacated on Tuesday following alerts that Cyclone Nisarga could hit the city. Nearly 250 patients, including 16 on oxygen support, were moved out of the facility. Most of them were shifted to NSCI Dome in Worli and some to Sion, KEM, R N Cooper and Nair hospitals.
*Rain accompanied by strong, gusty winds lashed parts of the city on Tuesday as it braced for the impact of cyclonic storm Nisarga that is expected to make landfall south of it on Wednesday afternoon.
