Maharashtra Removes all Covid Restrictions
From Saturday, Maharashtra will be free of all Covid restrictions, including masks.
As we celebrates the Marathi New Year on Saturday, Maharashtra, which was most hit by the Covid virus, will be free of any covid restrictions. The usage of masks will be recommended but not required, according to the state administration.
Masks are no longer considered “necessary” in Bengal and Delhi, however their use is still recommended in crowded locations.
The news came from Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray’s office in Maharashtra.
According to Rajesh Tope, the decision to lift all limitations was made at a cabinet meeting headed by the Chief Minister.
The number of new Covid infections each day in the state has decreased to roughly 100 per day.
There were 964 active cases across 35 districts on Monday.
According to a state health department report, the districts of Yavatmal, Washim, and Hingoli have no active cases.
Since the epidemic began in 2020, the state has documented 78,73,619 cases of illness, with 1,47,780 persons dying.
Covid statistics across the country have also decreased in recent months. The government recorded 1,225 new coronavirus infections in the previous 24 hours, bringing the total number of active cases to 14,307. With 28 more deaths, the total number of fatalities reached 5,21,129.
So far, 4,30,24,440 people have been affected.
During last year’s Ganesh Chaturthi, the state’s biggest festival, Maharashtra, which experienced the brunt of Covid’s first and second waves, enforced tight restrictions, preventing processions and physical “darshan” at pandals. Any violation will result in serious consequences, according to the police.
