  journal={arXiv: Physics and Society},
Mumbai, amongst the most densely populated cities in the world, has witnessed the fourth largest number of cases and the largest number of deaths among all the cities in India (as of 28th October 2020). Along with the rest of India, lockdowns (of varying degrees) have been in effect in Mumbai since March 25, 2020. Given the large economic toll on the country from the lockdown and the related restrictions on mobility of people and goods, swift opening of the economy especially in a financial hub… 
Modelling the Second Covid-19 Wave in Mumbai
This report uses and enhances the IISc-TIFR city simulator to computationally study the second wave of Covid-19 in Mumbai and plays out many plausible scenarios through varying economic activity, reinfection levels, population compliance, infectiveness, prevalence and lethality of the possible variant strains, and infection spread via local trains to arrive at those that may better explain thesecond wave fatality numbers.
Potential 3rd COVID Wave in Mumbai: Scenario Analysis
The second wave of Covid-19 that started in mid-February 2021 in Mumbai is now subsiding. Increasingly the focus amongst the policy makers and general public is on the potential third wave. Due to


COVID-19 Epidemic Study II: Phased Emergence From the Lockdown in Mumbai
The main takeaway of the simulation results is that a phased opening of workplaces, say at a conservative attendance level of 20 to 33% is a good way to restart economic activity while ensuring that the city's medical care capacity remains adequate to handle the possible rise in the number of COVID-19 patients in June and July.
Epidemiology and transmission dynamics of COVID-19 in two Indian states
Data from the Indian states of Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh provide a detailed view into severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) transmission pathways and mortality in a high-incidence setting, with marked differences from that observed in higher-income countries.
Seroprevalence of SARS-CoV-2 in slums and non-slums of Mumbai, India, during June 29-July 19, 2020
The high seroprevalence in slums implies a moderate infection fatality rate and underlines the importance of geographic specificity and urban structure in modeling SARS-CoV-2.

City-Scale Agent-Based Simulators for the Study of Non-pharmaceutical Interventions in the Context of the COVID-19 Epidemic
The usefulness of city-scale agent-based simulators in studying various non-pharmaceutical interventions to manage an evolving pandemic is highlighted and such tools may in time become a common-place item in the tool kit of the administrative authorities of large cities.
