MUMBAI,

Mumbai has sealed over 1,300 buildings in the city as per new guidelines after a surge in COVID-19 cases continued in India's financial capital on Saturday, a civic official said. As per the new guidelines issued earlier this week, buildings with over five COVID-19 patients will be sealed in the city.

Mumbai's civic authority, BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), on Saturday evening reported 571 fresh cases, taking the total number of active cases in the city to 6,900.

India's financial capital has seen a continuous rise in fresh cases over the past 10 days though the city's civic authority has ruled down a complete lockdown and has opted for area specific restrictions, which will be reviewed by the administration on Monday, the official said.
