No lock down in Maharashtra, state Cabinet decides
Placing speculations to relaxation, the Maharashtra authorities on Tuesday determined in opposition to imposing any lockdown within the state amid rising circumstances of the novel coronavirus. The choice was taken at a key cupboard assembly as we speak. The cupboard additionally dominated out clamping of an evening curfew within the state.
We are not planning any lockdown or night curfew in the state, Vijay Wadettiwar, Maharashtra’s Relief and Rehabilitation said.
The Coronavirus cases increased due to the festive season and we had reduced the testing so the numbers came down but now we have increased the testing so the numbers are spiking.
But things are under control, he said, adding that they weren’t looking to impose lockdown.
Earlier on Sunday, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had also stated that he did not want to impose another lockdown in the state while also warning that the second possible wave of coronavirus may be a “tsunami”.
We don’t have the vaccine yet, nor is there any treatment. So we have to stick to the preventive measures till then.
Don’t be under any mistaken impression that because everything is being opened up, the coronavirus has been conquered.
We don’t want another lockdown. I don’t want to end five years with lockdown after Lockdowns.
Though all festivals were celebrated with restraint, the danger has not yet subsided,” Thackeray had said.
