According to the state health department, 03 people were tested positive in Pune whereas 01 is diagnosed with Covid-19 in Satara. Covid-19 or SARS-CoV2 are used to identify the Coronavirus which was first detected in China's Wuhan in January this year.

Alarmed by the rapid pace with which the virus is taking the state into its clutches, the Maharashtra government clamped curfew in the entire state.

On Monday, Maharashtra saw the biggest single-day spurt of positive cases -- from 53 on Friday to 64 on Saturday to 74 on Sunday and 89 on Monday, the highest in the country. The tally went up to an alarming 101 Tuesday morning.

The figure shot up even as the Health Minister warned that the state stood on the threshold of a 'multiplication stage' of the virus and emphasized the need for people to maintain 'social distancing'.

Overall, India has detected 511 Coronavirus positive cases and 10 deaths as on Tuesday March 24.
