Update on Covid-19 situation in India
“The race to stop the virus spread in Asia’s biggest slum
And yet Dharavi, a sprawling slum in the heart of Mumbai, India’s financial and entertainment capital, appears to have brought an outbreak under control – for now.
Since the first case was reported on 1 April, more than 2,000 infections and 80-odd deaths have been reported here. Half of the cases have recovered.
Daily reported infections dropped from a high of 43 a day in May to 19 in the third week of June. The average doubling rate had gone up from 18 days in April to 78 in June.”
Note: Serve India Ministries’ staff are involved in community development work among the people of this and one other slum.
