On Saturday, Mumbai reported 105 fresh Covid-19 cases, which is the highest number of cases reported this year so far. Last year, on October 29, the city had reported 135 cases, and soon after, the numbers had declined. Meanwhile, the state has reported 437 cases, and two  deaths due to the virus. The central government has once again raised concern over the increase in cases.
