The state of Maharashtra has the most number of coronavirus cases in India and officials from the government are fighting hard to curb the spread of the virus. Chief Minister (CM) Uddhav Thackeray, on Sunday, announced the 'My Family-My Responsibility' campaign and asked every citizen to participate in the same thereby show their support.

As per reports, officials have been asked to conduct door to door testing and with the participation of the people's representatives, citizens, NGOs and others, this campaign would become a success. He further added that the mantra is to prevent the disease, and hence the respective teams from the government will visit houses and give instructions regarding the same.

A meeting was held from CM's residence where he interacted with all the Divisional Commissioners and District Collectors of the state via online conferencing. Furthermore, while addressing the state, he said that positivity is increasing across various districts in Maharashtra and the state is building facilities to fight coronavirus. Officials and teams have been working day and night for the last many months, however, our challenge is not over yet. 

During the lockdown, the number of cases were brought under control and hence reduced with time. But with the unlock 4.0 campaign and services resuming across Maharashtra, the government is demanding some action, as many people from different parts of the state will return for work.

Keeping this in mind, the number of cases may see a rise, and we now have to learn to live with the virus, by taking safety and precautionary measures. This is achievable through the new campaign where the motive is to prevent disease, but taking care of one's health along with that of the family's. Teams are working towards providing instructions and vigilance committees would be set up permanently, in the near future. 

Currently, Maharashtra produces 1000 metric tons of oxygen, but the requirement is 500 metric tons. Though the production is sufficient at present, more oxygen may be required in the future. Sharing the information, Dr Pradip Vyas added that the districts should record their demand for oxygen properly and ask for as much as they want. A state-level control room has been set up for this purpose, which will be in touch regarding the same, and it will help in understanding the amount of oxygen used, to ensure no wastage.

Furthermore, vehicles transporting oxygen have been given the status of emergency vehicles and will have sirens on it. The transport of these tanks should not be stopped across the cities, and they shall not stop in the traffic or at signals. Information was shared regarding this update by Additional Chief Secretary Ashish Kumar Singh.

Concerned teams in Maharashtra are also developing a special mobile application for the campaign, which will be useful not only for the general public but also for health teams to report daily cases of coronavirus. Officials stated that this will enable proper and quick analysis.
