The state of emergency in Maharashtra is expected to last until the end of May, with an announcement coming soon.

The Maharashtra government is expected to extend the current lockdown until May 31 due to an increase in the number of cases and deaths in the state.

KEY POINTS

– The Maharashtra government is expected to extend the curfew until May 31.

“If the strict restrictions are lifted, the situation may get out of control again,” Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope said, as quoted by Free Press Journal. The government is preparing for the third wave, increasing bed space, Remdesivir availability, and other medical facilities, as well as achieving oxygen self-sufficiency through Mission Oxygen. Vaccination rates are also being accelerated by the government.”

From April 22 to May 1, the state government declared ‘Break The Chain’ restrictions. These restrictions were later extended until May 15 due to an increase in the number of cases and deaths in the state.

The government has suspended inter-city and inter-district travel, as well as shut down all non-essential services, during the ongoing lockdown.

From 7 a.m. to 11 a.m., only critical services are permitted to operate. Furthermore, government offices have been given permission to operate at 15% power.

According to data from the Health Ministry, the state has recorded 51,38,973 COVID-19 cases and 76,398 deaths since the outbreak began. In terms of both cases and casualties, it is India’s worst-affected state.
