Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray today said daily cases in Mumbai was rapidly rising. Mumbai COVID situation ‘serious’ he said. In a virtual address, said the city would take a couple of weeks to determine if the current jump in daily COVID cases is a fresh wave. He also warned citizens to follow COVID protocols and avoid another lockdown in Mumbai city.

“Do we need a lockdown? If you behave responsibly, we will know in the next eight days. Those who don’t want a lockdown, will wear a mask. Those who want a lockdown, will not wear one. So wear a mask and say ‘No’ to the lockdown,” warned citizens in his conference.

The big concern is if this is a big new wave as cases are spreading across Maharashtra across many areas. “Whether this is a second wave or not, we will understand this in the coming 8 to 15 days,” Uddhav Thackeray said.

“The coronavirus figures are rising…the state was reporting around 2,000-2,500 daily cases; now, it is reporting nearly 7,000…active cases have jumped from 40,000 to 53,000…last year, the numbers that we had been getting during the COVIF peak, are almost equal to what we are getting now…just think what would be the figures when we hit the peak again,” noted Uddhav Thackeray.
