Covid deaths not going down as fast as cases, pushing up state CFRMumbai: Though both Covid cases and deaths are on the decline in the state, the case fatality rate (CFR) is on the rise because fatalities have not fallen as drastically as the cases. Between June 1 and 11, the state reported a CFR of 2.41%, up from 1.45% in the first 11 days of May and 0.5% in the same period in April.

Although cases between June 1 and 11 have reported a 76% dip compared to the same period in April, deaths have gone up 11%. Between May and June so far, the cases have dropped by 75%, but deaths by 63%.

Officials said big cities like Mumbai, Pune and Nagpur, which peaked earlier, have stabilised in terms of deaths, but smaller districts and towns are driving Covid deaths in the state.
