Mumbai, Jun 11 (PTI) The Maharashtra government on Friday added 2,213 deaths to overall COVID-19 death toll in the state, taking it to 1,06,367, after a 'scrutiny of laboratory reports for COVID-19 determination' and resultant updating of figures.

Earlier in the day, the state health department had said that between May 26 to June 10 this year, a total of 8,074 COVID-19 deaths took place.
