Some 900 coronavirus cases have been detected in the city, the second hardest-hit in the state.
Authorities have insisted the pandemic crisis is under control and have started to ease restrictions in many parts of the country to let agriculture and some companies get back to work.
Experts however have warned the toll is increasing despite the lockdown.
The virus is spreading particularly quickly in other major cities, including the capital New Delhi and the finance hub of Mumbai. And experts say the actual toll numbers are higher than reported because of the lack of testing and poor accounting for deaths.
While the number of fatalities is low compared to the United States and the worst-hit European nations, health specialists say India’s pandemic curve may only peak in June and July.
Shamika Ravi, an economic advisor to the government, said Saturday that the “infection is way ahead of our knowledge” in Gujarat and Maharashtra, which includes Mumbai, because authorities were not carrying out enough tests.
