After 529 cases on Friday, 510 cases were registered on Saturday, taking the overall Covid-19 tally in Mumbai to 7.48 lakh so far. The city has registered 500-plus cases for five of the past 11 days.

The state added 2,486 cases and 44 deaths. It also reported a drop in active cases to 33,000.

The rise in cases in the city is also apparent in the caseload for the first week over recent months: while 2,726 cases were registered between August 1 and 9, the caseload climbed to 3,907 in September for the same period. In October so far, the tally is higher at 4,288.

The trend is reversed for the state. The state reported 23,906 cases in the first nine days of October, which is the lowest since February this year. The tally for the first nine days of September was 37,215, and 51,787 new cases were reported in August in the same period.
