Maharashtra Curfew

Mumbai: A day after announcing Section 144, Maharashtra government Monday imposed Curfew in the entire state to control the spread of Coronavirus or COVID-19, the name given to it by WHO.

“I am announcing curfew in the state. Not more than five people can come together,” the chief minister said in a media announcement Monday.


The video statement of the Chief Minister is also shared on CMO Maharashtra official Tiwtter handler.

“Yesterday we sealed the state borders and today we are sealing district borders. We will not allow the virus to spread to the districts that are unaffected as of now,” he added.

However, Thackeray said essentials like groceries, milk, medical supplies, etc. will remain open and urged people to not panic.

"All religious places will remain closed", he said.

Maharashtra is the worst hit state by Coronavirus. The curfew is imposed in the state after the death toll surged to 03 and number of Coronavirus positive cases in Maharashtra climbed to 89.

"The coronavirus spread is at a crucial stage. If we don't take strong steps now, we may face a situation similar to other countries. We have been making repeated appeals, but they seem to have had no impact, so we are forced to implement curfew," Thackeray said in an address to the people of the state.

The state government had earlier said it will bear all expenses incurred on medical treatment of COVID-19 patients under Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Jan Arogya Yojana (MJPJAY).
