State Health Minister Rajesh Tope also came under the grip of Corona. Cabinet minister Chhagan Bhujbal has also been infected with Corona. At the moment their position remains stable. From the hospital itself, Tope has written a sentimental letter to the people of Maharashtra. They have appealed to the people of Maharashtra to join the battle of Corona and obey the rules of lockdown. For the past year, we all have been fighting a battle against Corona. The Corona warriors, especially the doctors, nurses, health workers, police, sweepers, who fought regardless of the government’s strict steps, the right guidance, honest efforts and life, helped us control the corona. The corona is not completely finished yet. He is again raising his head. We have to fight this battle once again. I am currently in the hospital. This virus has been following me since last year. But it was not possible for me to come to him. He has finally caught me. With the love, familiarity and blessings of all of you, I will come to fight this battle with you soon after defeating this virus. I appeal to you to please wear a mask, follow social distance, only then this crisis will be averted. After all, care for oneself, care for oneself, care for oneself means society. So let’s beat Corona.
The BMC and police are also taking strict action against those who disobey the administration’s appeal and do not follow the government guidelines. Nearly two thousand housing societies have been sealed in Mumbai and surrounding areas, action has been taken on many hotels, bars, restaurants and wedding ceremony establishments. Suresh Kakani, Additional Municipal Commissioner of BMC, said that as restrictions were relaxed, malls, restaurants, pubs, clubs and wedding events and other ceremonies started to get crowded, leading to increased infection cases. Many people are behaving as if there is no danger of Kovid-19. He is not following the rules in public places. In such a situation, the administration has to take action.
