Mumbai, May 1, 2020: “The people are the property of the state and the country. The question is, what about the lockdown after May 3? A decision will be taken about that. After 3rd May, we will give more relaxation in Green and Orange zones,” said Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray. On the occasion of Maharashtra Day, the Chief Minister interacted with the people of the state through Facebook Live. He said that this time we are taking steps with patience, firmness and caution.

The Chief Minister said, “After the 3rd May, we will give more freedom to each zone than the restrictions at present. We are not doing anything in haste. Everybody’s work has been hampered. We are taking steps with patience, determination and caution.”

Districts and municipal areas have been divided into Green Zone, Orange Zone and Red Zone. Care must be taken in the red zone. The Chief Minister said that relaxation is not possible in the red zone. The country has a lockdown until May 3. Many have questions about whether the lockdown will be removed after May 3. Regarding this, Uddhav Thackeray said, “Even though the economic cycle is in shambles, the real wealth of every state or nation is the people. The people must be saved.”

The Chief Minister said that it was not in people’s interest to do anything in the red zones like Mumbai and neighboring areas, Pune and Nagpur. Also, in the Orange Zone, where the number of corona patients is no longer increasing, but there are some active cases, the idea of ​​what can be done in the rest of the districts is underway. We are gradually removing the conditions in the green zone”, said the Chief Minister.

“A red zone is an active volcano, an orange zone is a dormant volcano, and a green zone is a volcano that doesn’t seem to erupt,” Thackeray said, describing the coronavirus zone.

Full list of Red, Orange, Green Zones for Lockdown post May 3.
As the lockdown 2.0 nears its end, the Union Health Ministry has identified 130 red zones across the country, 284 in the orange zone and 319 in green zones based on the incidence of cases of COVID-19, doubling rate, the extent of testing and surveillance feedback.
Of these, Maharashtra has 14 red zones, 16 orange zones and 6 green zones.
Metropolitan cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Pune, Bengaluru and Ahmedabad have been designated as red zones in the new classification.
A district will be considered under green zone if there have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 so far or there is no reported case since last 21 days in the district, according to the letter.

With a view to managing to COVID-19, every district of the country has been divided into:

  • Hotspot districts,
  • Non-Hotspot districts with reported cases, and
  • Green zone districts.

The main criteria of these hotspot districts are those from which more cases are being currently reported or where the rate of growth of cases is more i.e. that doubling rate of cases is less.
