Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday urged the people to avoid using Air Conditioner (AC) at their homes amid the coronavirus outbreak to order to prevent the risk of generating moisture. 

While addressing the citizens through social media, CM Uddhav Thackeray appealed people to keep the windows of their open instead of using the air-conditioning units. 

The central government has provided the Maharashtra government with a new advisory amid the coronavirus crisis stating not to use ACs which would help prevent moisture. 

“We have received a new advisory from the centre suggesting not to use air conditioners if possible. Avoid unnecessary cooling and moisture,” Chief Minister said. 

During his address, the Chief Minister advised the citizens to let the fresh air come in their homes by letting the windows open which will avoid the use of air-conditioning units. 

CM Uddhav Thackeray further reiterated that the essential items and services will continue to operate including health services, grocery shops, medical stores and banks. The Chief Minister also asked people to not panic and hoard essential items. 

Earlier, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Tuesday night announced a dedicated WhatsApp helpline which will provide citizens about the coronavirus-related information. This is being done to fight the misinformation being spread regarding the coronavirus or COVID-19. 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday imposed a nationwide lockdown starting from March 25 in order to tackle the coronavirus Pandemic.

Maharashtra has become the worst-hit state across the country with 116 active cases of the coronavirus or COVID-19. Four new positive COVID-19 cases emerged in Mumbai on Wednesday, taking the toll to 48. In India, the number of positive coronavirus cases has increased to 562.
