Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has called an important meeting on Tuesday (February 23) with the commissioner and officials of the Mumbai Municipal Corporation in view of the growing threat of Corona (Maharashtra Corona Virus). In this meeting, the Chief Minister will discuss the situation related to Corona in Mumbai and decide on further actions. In the past 10 days, cases of corona have been increasing in Maharashtra. On Tuesday morning, the government has issued orders to reopen the closed Corona centers.
The Chief Minister, while speaking to the public on Sunday evening, gave an eight-day ultimatum on the question of enforcing the lockdown in the state and said that if the rules of Corona were followed, they would not impose lockdown. If people do not follow the rules then lockdown will remain an option. On the second day of this announcement, the Chief Minister has called an important meeting in view of the situation in Corona. The fear has again arisen in the public that the Chief Minister is not going to take any major decision regarding the lockdown.
Restrictions on public programs apply since Monday
According to the announcement made by the Chief Minister on Sunday, a ban has been imposed on all political, social, religious programs, yatras and festivities in the state on Monday (22 February). There is a lockdown in many cities and night curfew is in place in many places. Despite this, there was a huge crowd in malls and markets in areas like Mumbai and adjoining Kalyan.
Preparation of hospitals in Mumbai
Everyday, new corona patients are coming out in 800 to 1000 in Mumbai. In such a situation, the Municipal Commissioner Iqbal Singh held an important meeting on Monday to take stock of the preparations of the hospitals. Representatives of the hospitals, private hospitals, private and government labs attended the meeting. Some rules were suggested under this. The patient was advised not to be admitted to the hospital if no obvious symptoms were observed. Hospitals were advised to keep the information about the infected infected and vacant beds on their dash board and screen.
80% seat reserve in private hospitals
So far, 80 percent beds in private hospitals have been reserved for corona infected. Some time ago, the hospitals had requested the administration on the reduction of corona infection that they should be given permission to abolish this reservation, but once again the hospitals have decided to withdraw their request.
Hot market of rumors, crowds exceeded limits
On Monday, people gathered in large numbers outside the D Mart in Kalyan due to rumors of lockdown being spread on social media. Three days ago a similar view appeared in Kalyan West’s D-Mart. Taking the rumors as true, people started shopping for essential goods in many places. Similarly, crowds were seen in Mumbai’s Crawford Market on Monday. People were fiercely violating the Corona rules.
Once again in Dadar, Mumbai Mayor Kishori Pednekar was seen pleading with people to use masks in the vegetable market. In such a situation, the risk of corona rising and forced lockdown appears to increase.
