Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray issued a warning to the citizens to not force him to impose a state-wide lockdown amid continuous spike in the coronavirus cases.

Speaking at a virtual meeting attended by representatives of hotel and restaurant associations, shopping centre groups, the CM ordered them state to ensure strict adherence to COVID-19 protocols in their premises like mandatory face masks and social distancing.

The meeting was called in the backdrop of reports that several malls and hotels had failed to adhere to COVID-19 guidelines.

"Do not force us to impose a strict lockdown. Consider this as the last warning. Follow all the rules. Everyone has to realise there is a difference between self-discipline and restrictions," said Thackeray in the review meeting.

Moreover, he pointed out that crowds had increased in most places since activities resumed in a phased manner from October, and safety rules were not being followed and this had resulted in a steep surge in cases.

He also said his government was not in favour of a lockdown to tackle the latest surge and asked people to cooperate to avoid having to take such a drastic decision.

Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) too reached out to Mumbaikars to take note of the rising graph of COVID-19 cases and help in preventing the spread of the virus. “It is in our hands to decide which way the graph goes. Let’s not allow the virus to get better of Mumbai. We can’t do this without you, Mumbai,” the BMC tweeted.
