Mumbai: Corona cases have not decreased in Maharashtra including Mumbai, but the death toll due to this is being recorded less. In such a situation, the state government is no longer in a mood to impose more strictness on the people. On Wednesday, a cabinet meeting was held under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.

According to sources, the opinion of most ministers is that keeping in mind the livelihood of the people, there is no need to tighten the restrictions further. In this third wave of corona, the speed of infection among people is fast, but it is a matter of relief that people are also recovering at the same speed. In such a situation, the ministers believe that it would not be appropriate to impose more restrictions to continue the economic cycle of the state. Presently the government has announced Night Curfew from 11 PM to 5 AM. Apart from this, it has been decided to keep all schools, colleges and universities closed till February 15.

Bed and oxygen consumption figures in hospitals under control

At the same time, in addition to all government offices, corporations, state offices, instructions have been given to work with 50% attendance in all private offices. However, despite these restrictions, the cases of corona infection have not come down as much as the government was expecting. But the number of beds and oxygen consumption in hospitals is under control. In such a situation, experts say that by tightening the restrictions unnecessarily, difficulties can increase. However, the government has given instructions to strictly follow the guidelines issued at present. People have been advised to avoid unnecessary crowds. However, despite the government order, corona rules are not being followed properly in many places.
