On March 11, Mumbai reported its first novel coronavirus case. Even though the civic administration has been spending sleepless nights, Covid-19 cases in the city have crossed 38,000 and even after 80 days there is no end in sight to the problem. This is despite imposing a strict lockdown from March 23 when there were just over 50 cases in
of the disease. “The numbers will keep increasing substantially without doubt. We have not even reached a plateau of the epidemiological curve. The plateau in my view is at least three to four weeks away for the state,” says Subhash Salunke, technical advisor to Maharashtra government on Covid-19 outbreak.
