Mumbai, 26 March: Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has decided to impose a night curfew in Maharashtra from March 28 in view of the ever rising of coronavirus cases. Also, all the District Magistrates (DMs) have been instructed to strictly deal with the violators of Covid protocols.
Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray convened a review meeting on Friday at Varsha Government residence to discuss the rising infectivity of Corona in the state.
All the divisional commissioners, district magistrates, municipal commissioners, superintendents of police, heads of various hospitals were present in this meeting.
Health Minister Rajesh Tope, Minister Amit Deshmukh etc. were present in the meeting through video conferencing.
The Chief Minister said that he did not wish to impose a lockdown in the state in view of the surging number of Corona infected. But health care should be increased to prevent the increasing number of corona infects in the state. Along with this, beds should be arranged.
Uddhav Thackeray said that there was a lockdown when the second wave of Corona arrived in Britain. The lockdown was later abolished there. The crisis is difficult, but people should continue to live, so instead of lockdown, it is necessary to strictly follow the Corona manual. Strictness should be done in the areas where corona infections are getting more.
“At the same time, the speed of the State Corona Virus Vaccination should also be increased. Nocturnal curfew will be imposed in all districts of the state from March 28 at present. It should also be strictly followed,” he added.
In the meeting, Medical Education Minister Amit Deshmukh said that the state has been given vaccine against the coronavirus to 52 lakh people. Maharashtra is number one in the introduction of anti-coronavirus vaccine and corona vaccination is being done rapidly across the state.
