Mumbai, August 08: Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has stated that those who have received both the doses of Covid-19 vaccines will be allowed to travel locally from August 15 (Independence Day). The decision to lift other restrictions in the state will be taken in the next few days.
Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, while addressing the citizens of the state through video conferencing on Sunday, said that 19 lakh people in Maharashtra have taken both doses of the corona vaccine. This number is increasing gradually. The Chief Minister said that in the first phase from August 15, local travel is being allowed to those taking both the doses. Those who have taken both the doses of Corona and have completed 14 days will be given travel pass in the local train. Further relaxation will be given in this regard later.
The CM said that corona vaccination is being done rapidly by the state government. The state government is going to vaccinate people in the state as soon as possible after getting the corona vaccine from the Centre.
The Chief Minister has also appealed to divide the private offices in time, so that the crowd can be controlled.
Thackeray said that Corona has not left the state yet. In the month of February, it seemed that the intensity of corona had reduced but after that there was again a wave of corona in the state and people had to face it. Even though the number of corona infected has decreased at this time, but corona patients are increasing in many parts of the country.
The Chief Minister said that the State Government is fully prepared to deal with the third wave of Corona, but restraint and cooperation of citizens is also necessary.
Attacking the opposition, the Chief Minister said that as soon as the number of coronavirus cases declining, some people start trying to provoke the public, but the people of the state are aware, due to which the corona has been controlled in the state. It is because of the people of the state that the Maharashtra model is being praised in the country.
The Chief Minister said that he wants to open everything for the entire day, but the crisis of Corona is going to scare, so he has decided to gradually lift the ban as per the advice of the task force. All the citizens should follow the corona rules and maintain restraint while understanding the situation of corona.
