There will be ban on political, social and religious gatherings. Since the last few days, there has been a rapid increase in the number of Coronavirus (COVID19) cases.

“Shall we declare lockdown in Maharashtra? Many people are asking for a lockdown. But we will not declare it suddenly. In the next week, we will observe whether people are wearing masks in public places or not and then decide on a lockdown”, he added.

CM Thackeray said, “For the next eight days, those who don’t want lockdown to be imposed will wear a mask and those who want it will not use a mask. With this, we will see how many of you want lockdown and how many of you don’t want it.”

He also appealed to people to start the “I am responsible” campaign by following all guidelines. “I have suggested to the Prime Minister that work hours in offices should be distributed to avoid gathering. Also, teams should be divided so as to work on alternate days and not calling employees to the office who can work from home”, he stated and asked employers to think over it.

When will common people receive the Corona vaccine? 

Chief Minister Thackeray affirmed that the vaccination program is being run by the central government. “The Centre will provide vaccine doses to all states. At present, it is being given to healthcare and frontline workers post which it will be available for common citizens”, he said.

“Till then we have a shield in the form of a mask”, he said and appealed to people to wear the mask whenever they are outside their homes.
