It was a big achievement for Mumbai when it reported zero COVID-19 deaths, for the first time since March 26, 2020, when the pandemic gripped the city in a big way.
In a tweet, Mumbai Civic Commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal said the city reported zero deaths due to the virus on Sunday – the first time since the pandemic. “This is great news for all of us in Mumbai,” he said.
Iqbal Singh Chahal said that at least 97 percent of citizens in Mumbai have received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine while 55 percent are fully vaccinated.
“Let us all keep the masks on our face and let every citizen of Mumbai get vaccinated if some of us haven’t yet. I appeal to everyone to help us keep Mumbai safe,” he said.
Tourism Minister Aditya Thackeray, who is one of the Guardian Ministers of Mumbai, hailed the development as “good news” after nearly 20 months.
“Keep the mask on the face and get yourself vaccinated if you haven’t yet! Help us keep Mumbai safe. We are here to serve you!” he exhorted Mumbaikars in tweets late this evening.
The city also recorded 367 new cases, while 518 fully recovered patients went home on Sunday, heartening the city health authorities.
