The Times of India Mumbai|August 22, 2021
As the second wave of Covid-19 declines, there are 15 districts in the state that have fewer than 100 active cases of Covid-19. Six of these 15 districts have active cases that are in single digits, while the tribal-dominated Nandurbar district has absolutely no active case at all.

Mumbai: Of the 55,000 active cases in the state, over 37,000 are concentrated in the five districts of Pune, Thane, Satara, Ahmednagar and Sangli.

The city, with just over 3,000 cases, is in seventh spot in the state. “These 15 districts are smaller, with sparse population density and limited movement,” a state official said. The officer said that the challenge now was to keep the daily detection numbers and active cases low in these parts of the state.
