The BMC (Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation) stated that this is the seventh consecutive day where Mumbai has shown more than 1000+ rise in a number of cases.
The Honorable Home Minister of Pune, also stated that they would take calls on the restrictions to be imposed so as to control the cases.

March 2020 is what had seen the outbreak of Covid, and March 2021 is also what seems the same, but the only difference currently is that people's attitude toward it. The people have become more compliant these days, though not completely ignorant. But now it's high time where we all stay alert and refrain ourselves from involving in contact with more number people, and start taking precautions once again.
