Maharashtra Govt extended lockdown. Due to high COVID-19 Spike Honorable Chief Minister of Maharashtra Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray addressing the State, announced the extension of lockdown. Also, Maha CM says I decided that instead of giving a free run to rumors and speculations after today’s video conference with Honorable Prime Minister of India, It is better i speak to you. I remember the lines from a Marathi song: The world is sleeping silently with the sky above it. But, here everyone has lost sleep. The numbers are rising and there is nothing to hide here. The first case was reported from Pune. Mumbai has a very busy airport with heavy international passengers, making it a doorway.
Maharashtra Govt Extended Lockdown till April 30th, 2020 says CM Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray
As per the latest update at Maharashtra confirmed cases is 1,276. Due to huge spike of COVID-19 cases Maharashtra CM addressing the media, says When we launched screening at the airport, We tested passengers coming from countries given by the Centre. But, Some countries were not included in this list and passengers coming from them slipped through. Of course, this is not the time to debate this.
We began by imposing prohibitory orders, and shut down malls and hotels and gradually went in for a lockdown. The rise of patients is of course, worrying. But, keep in mind that we have sealed areas in Mumbai which have reported COVID +Ve patients with curbs on entry and exit.
I know this affects local residents initially. We are forced to do this. But we are ensuring supply of essentials, medicines and milk. These areas have been quarantined. The civic body has launched contact tracing and testing home to home instead of waiting have been found COVID +Ve.
