BMC officials, though, said there is no cause for worry; the overall case fatality rate (the proportion of individuals diagnosed with a disease who die from that disease) in October is down to 0.78—the lowest in five months.
“The case fatality rate (CFR) throughout the second wave was low in Mumbai as compared to the first wave in 2020,” said Dr Avinash Supe, who is a member of the state government’s task force on mortality. During the first wave which peaked in September 2020, the CFR rose from 13.27 in March 2020 to 4.78 in July 2020.
The CFR in February, which was when the second wave began, was 0.70 and kept rising to 2.5 in May, which saw the maximum number of deaths in the second wave (1,701).
According to the data released by the BMC on Thursday, CFR has been steadily dropping since then to 1.15 in September.
