In addition to the 39 people tested positive for coronavirus or COVID-19, Maharashtra government on Tuesday confirmed two more cases. Out of these 2 people, one was from Mumbai and other Pune and both tested positive for the COVID-19 in the state. The total number of confirmed coronavirus cases have reached 41.

Maharashtra has become the worst-hit state in India with 41 cases and one casualty which was reported today in Mumbai while the country records 130 positive cases for coronavirus. A 64-year-old man died at Kasturba Gandhi Hospital. 

However, speaking on the death earlier in the day, Maharashtra Public Heath Minister Rajesh Tope said that one can’t be sure that the reason of death is the novel coronavirus. 

“It is not possible to say that the man who died at Kasturba Hospital today, died due to coronavirus. We are waiting for the report,” Tope said. 

In a cabinet meeting on Tuesday, the Maharashtra government decided that the public transport in the state will remain function along with the government offices.

While talking to the media, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray informed that there is no holiday for the government employees but the offices will function with 50 per cent attendance. Tope added to the statement saying that this is being done to curb crowd in the public transport including local trains, buses and metros. 

The Maharashtra government had made it mandatory for the private offices in Mumbai to manage their operations with less than 50 per cent attendance while allowing the rest to work from home. 

Meanwhile, Maharashtra State Election Commission (MSEC) on Tuesday postpone all the upcoming local bodies elections including the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) polls. 

The MSEC has taken the decision to defer the upcoming local body elections as a precautionary measure to stop the spreading of coronavirus or COVID-19. The state election commission has also stayed the poll-related process.
