Wagholi, September 11, 2020: Against the backdrop of increasing Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases in Wagholi, the Gram Panchayat has called for a five- days ‘Janta Curfew’ which will be observed from September 12 to September 17.

Vasundhara Ubale, Sarpanch, Wagholi said, “I appeal people to abide by the administrative rules, to stay at home and cooperate to control the further spread of COVID in Wagholi region. Those who are working outside, try to stay outside or at their workplaces.”

While the COVID patients in the Wagholi region have reached 924, with almost 210 patients found positive in the last five days, this has caused fear amongst the people of Wagholi.

The meeting was attended by Sarpanch Vasundhara Ubale, Deputy Sarpanch Malati Gogavale, Police inspector Pratap Mankar of Lonikand police station, and other members as well.
