Mumbai's restrictions will be removed by the month's end, says the Mumbai Mayor.

Despite a decrease in the number of daily COVID-positive patients in Mumbai, the municipal body, BMC, has decided to relax outdoor activity bans and reopen the city by the end of February 2022. For Mumbai residents, this is great news. By the end of this month, Mumbai will be free of all COVID-19 restrictions. According to the sources, Mumbai Mayor Kishori Pednekar stated, "We have made up our minds."

On the other hand, Ms. Pednekar issued a warning and asked people not to let their guard down in order to avoid another spike in cases. "It is critical and very important for all the public to wear masks and maintain social distance to be safe from infection," Mumbai Mayor Kishori Pednekar stated.

This occurs after the city's COVID case counts, which spiked during the pandemic's third wave over the last month, have consistently declined over the last week, with the city announcing 356 cases in yesterday's news report.

As per the news report, Mumbai city had reported daily case counts of 536 and 643 on Sunday and Saturday, respectively. The Mumbai municipal corporation's decision to reduce COVID restrictions comes after the Maharashtra government lowered limits in 11 areas where cases had been abandoned.

With the restarting of schools, there are increasing concerns about the safety of young students under the age of 15. Health Minister of India, Mansukh Mandaviya, said in the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday that the government would decide whether to vaccinate this group based on the recommendations of an expert panel. During Question Hour, he stated that the government has formed an expert panel to provide recommendations on which age groups should receive the COVID-19 vaccine first and that immunisation for the 15–18 age range is now ongoing.

According to news agency PTI, the expert panel meets on a regular basis and makes recommendations on which the government acts.

The city relaxed various restrictions on outdoor activities earlier this month, allowing people to use beaches, gardens, and parks. Spas and salons were also allowed to reopen at half-capacity. The nighttime curfew had been lifted, and cafes and restaurants may now serve up to 50% of their customers. The local government also mandated that amusement parks and swimming pools operate at half capacity.

The data analysis also showed that there are now no more containment zones, and just one building remains sealed after positive cases are detected.
