Uddhav Thackeray: Don’t think we will reach complete lockdown stage | Mumbai News – Times of India

MUMBAI: Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray said on Friday complete lockdown is not coming soon.
“A complete lockdown may be necessary but I don’t think we will reach that stage,” he said.
He added, Maharashtra would have seen nine to ten lakh active coronavirus cases if the state government had not imposed new lockdown-like restrictions.
He also said that the inoculation against Covid-19 for those above 18 years of age will start from Saturday ‘as per the availability’ of vaccine doses.
The latest restrictions helped contain the daily spike in coronavirus cases and active cases have now stabilised at around 6.5 lakh, Thackeray said in a televised address on the eve of Maharashtra’s Foundation Day.
“We will fight this coronavirus wave together like we did last year,” he added.
Thackeray also said the state will make one-time payment by cheque to procure 12 crore doses needed for the inoculation of 18-44 age group category.
The vaccination for this category will start from Saturday as per the availability of doses, and the state has received three lakh doses on Friday, he said.
