Maharashtra Covid lockdown news live: Toll in state’s tribal districts 2-4 times higher than in first wave

LIVE NOW

The second wave of Covid-19 shows a declining trend across Mumbai and Maharashtra, but spots of worry remain. Maharashtra has registered less than 25,000 for three consecutive days, but smaller districts and non-metro areas continue to drive the Covid graph of the state. Though cases in all 36 districts of Maharashtra have jumped during the second wave, 21 of them have had both cases and deaths rising. The state has surpassed last year’s case tally of 19.32 lakh to reach 36.69 lakh, but overall confirmed deaths so far this year (39,691) continue to be less than last year’s 49,521. Of the 21 districts that bucked this trend, 11 had more than 100% rise in deaths. The tribal-populated and underdeveloped districts of Maharashtra are among the hardest hit by the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic.
