COVID spike, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has ramped up the number of daily tests since the first week of June Since June 7, Mumbai has been witnessing daily cases in four digits with the fresh count crossing the 2,000-mark on a few days.
Consequently, the number of tests since then has also gone above 15,000 per day barring a couple of days. However several experts have pointed out that this may not be the start of a fourth wave mostly because the variant that is circulating currently is Omicron which had already peaked in January with the city recording 20,000 cases every day.
So catching a severe infection for the second time is highly unlikely. A similar trend was witnessed in Delhi in April this year.
