Lockdown-like curbs likely to be extended in Maharashtra by 15 days | Mumbai News


State relief & rehabilitation minister Vijay Wadettiwar said that cases have dropped in Mumbai, but not in other parts of the state

MUMBAI: Following a surge in Covid cases, the state government is likely to extend lockdown-like restrictions at least by 15 days, from May 1 to 15. A final decision is expected to be taken at the cabinet meeting on Wednesday.
State relief & rehabilitation minister Vijay Wadettiwar told the media that cases have dropped in Mumbai, but not in other parts of the state. “After the increase in curbs in the state, Covid cases reduced in Mumbai, but are still on the rise in Vidarbha, Marathwada and other parts.” He added that the cabinet will take a decision after reviewing the situation.
A senior official said the state was taking stock of new cases daily and curbs will not be lifted in one go, but gradually. “Relaxation cannot start unless new cases come to below 35,000-40,000 for few days,” he said. Another official said the state will carry on vaccination to cover maximum people during lockdown curbs. “Both measures, restrictions and vaccination, may help control infections in few days,” added an official.
The state had imposed additional restrictions from April 14 to May 1. It put curbs on inter-district and inter-city travel and reintroduced e-passes for inter-district and inter-state movement.
