Mumbai: The city of Mumbai will continue to be under level 3 lockdown restrictions despite a decline in the Covid-19 positive cases. In a separate order issued by the municipal corporation, it says as on June 10th, the city's positivity rate has dropped to 4.40% and oxygen bed occupancy has also reduced to 27.12%.As per Maharashtra Government's guidelines, the above criteria is eligible under level 2, but BMC has decided not to ease out the restrictions this soon. Three reasons have been cited -1. The geographical structure and population density of the city of Greater Mumbai.2) A large number of commuters commute daily from Mumbai metropolitan area by local train.3) Warning of Excessive rainfall in the coming days in the Mumbai city area by the IMD.BMC says, the city is still recording 600-700 Covid-19 cases daily and don't want to ease out the restrictions by opening malls and theatres which is allowed under level 2. This will attract crowding and cases might jump again which will be difficult to control. Thus, BMC says it will continue to monitor the situation till June end before taking any decision regarding easing the restrictions.Remember, on June 4, 2021, the Maharashtra government had come up with an order notifying levels of restrictions to be imposed in various administrative units in different districts of the state, as per the COVID-19 positivity rate and the oxygen beds occupancy in these administrative units.As per the set government’s orders, for level 3 restriction, non-essential shops are allowed to remain open only till 4 pm on weekdays.
