Coronavirus Case and Fatality Rate in India, Coronavirus Third Wave Updates September 10 Highlights: Even as the geographical spread of coronavirus shrinks across India, there are new worries in cities such as Mumbai, Nashik, and North-East states such as Mizoram. Amid the new increase in the fresh Covid-19 infections, the 10-day long Ganesh Chaturthi festival begins from today. Mumbai is welcoming her favourite God – Ganpati Bappa amid strict Covid rules. There will be no physical darshan for devotees, no processions either while bringing the holy statues home/pandals or during the visarjan. This means that this year will also see muted celebrations in Mumbai and surrounding areas.
