Ten of these patients reside in Mumbai. This includes a four-year-old girl from Santacruz and a nine-year-old girl from Goregaon. The rest have come from Gujarat, Bhopal or other peripheral parts to seek treatment. "The minor girls from Santacruz and Goregaon have shown improvements now," said sources.

According to reports, a 60-year-old female, who was admitted to BMC-run Kasturba Hospital for Infectious Diseases on January 31, died last Thursday early morning.
