In recent developments, Maharashtra Chief Minister is to chair a meeting through video conferencing on Friday, April 16, in order to assess the COVID-19 situation in the jurisdiction of Mumbai’s civic body, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).

Moreover, CM Thackeray is also expected to take an update on pre-monsoon preparations by the civic body, like every year. India receives an average rainfall of 880.6 mm during the monsoon season. This period of rain is called Long Period Average (LPA). Moreover, according to Skymet, this year, Maharashtra, along with Mumbai in western India, will have to wait for September for good rains.

The season of monsoons happens to be very crucial for agriculture as the summer crops depend on India’s annual rainfall for abundant growth. It happens to be very important for the agriculture of the country, which is one of the mainstays of its economy. However, with the second wave of the coronavirus hitting the country, it becomes crucial for the authorities to take the necessary steps in order to ensure that cases of dengue, malaria are minimized.

On the other hand, the state government recently released the `Break the Chain’ guidelines till April 30 to tackle the surge of coronavirus cases across the state. While night curfew has been imposed from 8 PM to 7 AM, section 144 has been imposed across the state from 7 AM to 8 PM.

Moreover, religious places, educational institutions too have been shut whereas restaurants and bars have been granted permission only for takeaways and home delivery. In addition, all social/political/religious gatherings are banned whereas weddings have been capped at 50 people and funerals at 20 people.
