No evidence of community spread in Maharashtra till now: State Health Minister

AIR
Even though Maharashtra is seeing a rapid increase of Covid 19 cases, state Health Minister Rajesh Tope today said, there is no evidence of community spread in the state till now.

Speaking to reporters in Mumbai, Mr Tope said, the state government has been able to trace almost every COVID-19 affected person and his or her source of infection. He said, data shows that most of the coronavirus positive patients are those who were earlier placed under institutional quarantine, home quarantine or had some contact history which shows there has been no community spread in Maharashtra so far. However, the state is now adopting localized lockdown regulations to contain the spread of the virus.


AIR correspondent reports, section 144 has come into effect in Mumbai and will remain so for next 15 days. Three other adjoining Municipal Corporations, Thane, Kalyan Dombivali and Mira Bhayander too are under complete lockdown for 10 days as cases have seen a sharp rise in the jurisdiction of municipal corporations and have become hotspots of Covid-19.

In another development, an 8 day curfew has been imposed in Maharashtra’s Beed district.  As per an order issued by the Beed Collector Rahul Rekhawar, the curfew will remain in force till July 8 midnight. During this period, only emergency services will be allowed to operate, but all other private and government offices will remain closed.
