July 7, 2020: Maharashtra’s capital Mumbai on Tuesday overtook China in the number of coronavirus positive cases and deaths.

As per the official data, Mumbai presently has 85,724 coronavirus positive cases and 4,938 deaths. In China, the total number of fatalities is 4,634 and number of positive cases stands at 83,565.

Also, China records single-digit new cases every day, less than those reported in Mumbai’s Dharavi area daily. However, this is to be noted that the state and civic governments’ various strict measures have ensured that Asia's largest slum is no more a COVID-19 hotspot.

According to the sources, Mumbai has been recording more than 1,100 new positive cases daily since July 1 as compared to China.
