Lockdown imposed in this district of Maharashtra: See full report



A one-week lockdown was enforced by officials in Maharashtra’s Amravati district on Sunday in wake of the sudden rise in coronavirus cases across the state.

While announcing the decision, Guardian Minister Yashomati Thakur said that the lockdown will begin from 8 pm on Monday in the district, excluding Achalpur the city. He, however, added that essential services will stay available.

Noting that the decision was taken after an uptick in COVID-19 cases, Thakur warned that the lockdown can be extended if people continue to flout coronavirus protocols.

Earlier, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had also warned that the state government might enforce a lockdown if the coronavirus cases continue to rise. He also asked authorities to take stringent action against those flouting COVID-19 norms.

“If people do not wear masks or follow health rules, then the district and police administration has a responsibility to strictly enforce these rules. They must take strict punitive and necessary action without showing any leniency,” Thackeray had said.
