Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray in Favour of COVID-19 Lockdown: Health Minister Rajesh Tope

While the Centre wants at least 70 per cent of tests to be RT-PCR, in Maharashtra, the proportion is 73 per cent, Tope said.

Pune: Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope on Monday said in a warning tone that people must follow COVID-19 safety protocols if the state is to avoid another lockdown. Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray was of the view that lockdown may become necessary in some cities if the new cases continue to climb, Tope told reporters here, adding that he met the CM two days ago. “He told me that if the number of daily cases in the state remains in the range of 25,000 to 30,000 for the next some days, then we will have to take some stringent steps. He is of the opinion that if the numbers continue to increase, we will have to impose lockdown in some cities,” the minister said. Also Read – Maharashtra Records Highest New COVID Cases Ever; Lockdown-like Restrictions Return in State | Key Points
