Maharashtra Lockdown Latest Update Is Govt Discussing to Impose Another Lockdown Health Minister says no

As the cases of Kovid-19 and Omicron variants increase in Maharashtra, the people of the state are getting worried about another lockdown. But is the state government really considering imposing a lockdown? Actually, the number of Omicron has reached 454 in Mumbai alone in Maharashtra. In such a situation, the state health officer has warned that by the third week of January, there will be 2 lakh active cases in the city. So is the government considering the lockdown in view of the warnings of these cases? At present, there are few signs of lockdown in the state.

If this happens then Maharashtra will automatically have a lockdown!

According to the report of news agency PTI, Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope said on Saturday that the lockdown is not being discussed in the state. Tope told reporters, “At present there is no discussion about imposing the lockdown. The government will take a decision on restrictions keeping in mind the infection rate of cases, availability of hospital beds and oxygen consumption.” “If the daily (medical) oxygen requirement exceeds 700 metric tonnes, the state will automatically go into lockdown,” he said. Tope was here to attend a function organized to mark the 39th anniversary of the Mahatma Gandhi Mission Educational Trust.

CM Thackeray will meet

The Health Minister said, “At present we have imposed some restrictions on social gatherings. If it brings the spread virus under control, good. Otherwise we will have to impose strict restrictions.” He said that Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray will soon hold a meeting of top officials in this regard. It was important to find accurate data for Omicron and Delta cases in the current situation, and there was a need for at least one genome sequencing laboratory in each administrative division of the state, he said. State Disaster Management Minister Vijay Wadettiwar had said a day earlier that a “new lockdown” was imminent, but the decision would be taken by the chief minister. Maharashtra on Friday recorded 8,067 new coronavirus cases, a 50 per cent increase from the day before.
