Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray on Friday instructed officials to impose a statewide night curfew in view of the rising coronavirus (Covid-19) cases from the midnight of March 28.
Thackeray announced his decision after chairing a meeting with all divisional commissioners, collectors, SPs, and senior doctors of district hospitals to review the virus situation in the state. He also asked authorities to beef up infrastructure for better handling of the situation.
Malls will also remain closed from 8pm to 7am.
Further, he referred to Britain as an example. The country was under lockdown for two months after a second wave of coronavirus emerged there.
