As the number of coronavirus cases in Maharashtra crosses the 7,500-mark, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday informed that 80 per cent of COVID-19 patients in the state are asymptomatic while 20 per cent are those with mild, critical symptoms. 

While addressing the citizens via social media, Uddhav Thackeray appealed those hiding their symptoms and are trying to avoid getting tested to get their tests done. Over 1.8 lakh have been conducted for the COVID-19 in Maharashtra till now, the Chief Minister said while adding that the government was not hiding any information pertaining to the infected patients in Mumbai or elsewhere. 

Speaking about the demise of two policemen, Uddhav Thackeray said that his government will do everything possible for the family members of the deceased. A 52-year-old constable of Mumbai Police and another 57-year-old head constable died due to the coronavirus earlier. 

“It is painful that two of our policemen have sacrificed their lives due to infection. I pay homage to them. Their families will be supported as per the government policy,” Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray said while urging the private doctors to start their clinics and begin treating non-COVID-19 patients. 

In his address, the Chief Minister informed that the state has been successful in curbing the multiplication of COVID-19. “We have been able to stop the multiplication of the infection. We have curbed its growth to some extend,” Uddhav Thackeray said. 

Speaking on the plight of the migrant workers and labourers amid the coronavirus lockdown, Uddhav Thackeray assured the stranded migrants that their issues will be dealt with urgency. “I am talking to the centre and whatever is possible will be done soon. We are also trying to bring back Maharashtra students stuck in Kota,” the Chief Minister said. 

Uddhav Thackeray further stated the trains will not be started because it would create crowd menace and will lead to a hike in the number of coronavirus cases. “The train services will not start anytime soon. This is for sure. Because we don’t want crowds or else the lockdown will be extended further,” the Chief Minister said during his address. 

Amid the political controversies and incidents, Uddhav Thackeray appreciated the efforts of senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Nitin Gadkari for urging everyone to join hands in Maharashtra to combat the spread of the deadly virus. The BJP has demanded the resignation of state ministers over the Palghar mob lynching incident. 

Thackeray also expressed his gratitude to the Muslim community for following the lockdown guidelines during the Ramzan month and said that he was thankful that there is no celebration outside.
