The daily count of Covid-19 cases in Maharashtra reached another high on Sunday, with the discovery of over 30,000 infections. Till just five days ago, total number of cases from the entire country was fewer than this number.

Retaining the highest contributor status for the third consecutive day, Pune reported over 5,000 cases. With it’s Sunday tally of 5,421 positive cases, Pune is dangerously close to its all-time peak of 5,939 cases, achieved on September 2020.

Mumbai is aspiring to scale new heights in numbers as well. The city reported 3,779 infections on Sunday which is a new record. Nagpur, Thane, Nashik, Aurangabad and Jalgaon are the other cities in the state powering the surge. Nagpur reported 3,665 cases, which is just a shade lower than its all-time high of 3,731 yesterday.

Maharashtra has so far recorded close to 25 lakh confirmed infections. Its number of active cases is beyond two lakh now and the state also reported 99 deaths on Sunday, the highest since December last year. So far 53,339 Covid-related deaths have been reported from the state not including 1,296 deaths that have been classified as caused by “other causes” where Covid infections were incidental.

Maharashtra has had a steep rise in the number of cases and in the first three weeks of this month, the state alone has added more than 3.24 lakh cases. This is comparable to the number of cases detected in the entire country in February. No other state has ever reported more than 12,000 cases in a single day since the Covid pandemic spread. Only three states – Kerala, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka – have crossed the 10,000-mark on a single day during the previous surge between August and October last year.
