COVID-19: CM Uddhav Thackeray imposes curfew in entire Maharashtra

Maharashtra Chief Minister, Uddhav Thackeray, today imposed curfew in the entire state of Maharashtra. These steps should be seen as preventive measures by the citizens, said Thackeray.

He also appealed to citizens to stay at home for their own safety in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.

Despite Section 144 being invoked in the state, a number of people were seen out on streets on Monday while several main roads were packed with vehicles.

In view of this, Thackeray said, "People should take this war against COVID-19 seriously. Section 144 of CrPC is invoked so that essential services continue to operate while rest of the services are suspended till March 31. People should not violate rules by crowding the streets."

All district borders will be sealed in Maharashtra in the wake of the rapid spread of novel coronavirus, added Thackeray.

The state Health Department today said that Mumbai has reported 14 new cases in the last 24 hours, Taking the total number of coronavirus patients in Maharashtra to 89.
