The novel coronavirus has once again taken a frightening form in the country, and the second wave in many states have posed a big concern. The state of Maharashtra is one of the worst affected in India whereby nine out of the 10 districts in India have the highest number of active patients.

The information was shared by Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan at a press conference held on March 24, 2021, and the central government has released a list of ten districts in the country with the highest number of coronavirus patients. 

These include districts in the states of Maharashtra and Karnataka, and the nine which have been mentioned from the state are Pune, Nagpur, Mumbai, Thane, Nashik, Aurangabad, Nanded, Jalgaon and Akola. The only district in Karnataka is Bangalore.

Furthermore, two districts in Maharashtra have seen a huge increase in the last few days.

In the last 24 hours, a total of 28,000 COVID-19 patients have been registered in Maharashtra and the total number of patients are more than the population living in Punjab, said Rajesh Bhushan. Apart from this, the situation in Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh is also worrisome, whereby 1700 patients were registered in a day in Gujarat and 1500 in Madhya Pradesh. Gujarat has the highest number of patients with districts like Surat, Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Rajkot and Bhavnagar becoming the hotspots for coronavirus. On the other hand, cities like Bhopal, Indore, Jabalpur, Ujjain and Betul from Madhya Pradesh have more patients too, added Bhushan.

Observing the rise in COVID-19 cases, the state government of Maharashtra has warned the citizens to follow the COVID-19 norms. CM Uddhav Thackeray, in a recently held press conference said that lockdown would be considered as an option if people fail to follow the guidelines as directed. State Health Minister Rajesh Tope also confirmed he same. 

Meanwhile, Maharashtra's Environment Minister, Aaditya Thackeray had also tested positive for coronavirus. He shared the information on Twitter asking everyone who came in touch with him recently to get tested too. A few days later, on March 23, 2021, his mother and CM's wife, Rashmi Thackeray also tested positive. She was under quarantine at her residence. CM and his wife recently received the first shot of vaccination on March 11, 2021.
