Maharashtra: 15-day partial lockdown from today as Covid-19 cases rise

CM Thackeray said he isn’t imposing a complete lockdown in the state but announced that there will be a strict ‘janta curfew’, starting 8 pm today. The janta curfew will remain in effect till 7am on 1 May.

However, the “lockdown-like” restrictions exclude essential services.

In his address to people of the state via social media, CM Thackeray said, “There is a shortage of medical oxygen, beds and the demand for Remdesivir has also increased,” he said, as he appealed opposition parties and the civil society to help the government overcome the crisis. “This is not the time to do politics.”
