Amid Corona Surge in Mumbai, the police have begun a crackdown at the crowded Dadar Market

Despite the growing number of COVID-19 cases in Maharashtra, a large crowd gathered in Mumbai's Dadar Market and Shivaji Park on Saturday morning. People were seen flouting social distancing rules in the market and park, and many were also seen without masks.

On Friday, Mumbai's stock index surpassed 3,000 for the first time, with a positivity rate of 0.51 percent and a recovery rate of 91 percent. This is indicative of how the covid pandemic has once again engulfed the largest city. The BMC will soon conduct random rapid antigen testing at crowded spots like markets, railway stations, and bus stops with the goal of detecting positive carriers in time as part of measures to curb virus spread and ensure crowded areas don't add to their problems.
