Mumbai News Live: Man, woman hang selves in Malad; state logs 1,494 new Covid-19 cases

ON SUNDAY, the test positivity rate (TPR) — the number of positive cases out of the total tests conducted — stood at 11 per cent in Mumbai with 961 new Covid-19 cases identified out of the 8,778 conducted tests. The state’s TPR stood at 5.7 per cent after 1,494 patients tested positive of Covid-19 out of the 25,994 tests conducted on Sunday.

As students move toward higher classes, their understanding levels show a steady decline, according to the National Achievement Survey (NAS), Maharashtra, report. Moreover, a comparison between government-run and private schools shows that the latter have better performance in higher classes. This raises questions on quality or standards of education in government-run schools in Maharashtra, especially in higher classes, according to experts.
