Maharashtra lockdown update: State likely to extend COVID-19 curbs beyond May 1, final decision today

Maharashtra government is looking to extend the statewide lockdown-like restrictions amid the surge in COVID-19 cases. The final decision is expected to be taken during a Cabinet meeting on April 28.

“Though COVID-19 cases are dipping in Mumbai and Thane, the same trend is not being seen in rural parts of the state, such as Marathwada and Vidarbha,” said Vijay Wadettiwar, relief and rehabilitation minister., as per an Indian Express report.

A decision will be made during April 28 Cabinet meeting on whether to extend lockdown by a week or two, he added.

Earlier, BMC Commissioner Iqbal Chahal had also said the Maharashtra government is unlikely to ease COVID-19 restrictions in the state post-May 1 if cases continue to rise unabated.
