Hasan Mushrif, Rural Development Minister, on Friday tested positive for the coronavirus.

Earlier on Friday, Energy Minister Nitin Raut had tested positive for the coronavirus. The Rural Development Minister Mushrif further asked people who came in contact with him to get themselves tested.

In the recent past, ministers Jitendra Awhad (housing), Ashok Chavan (PWD), Dhananjay Munde (social justice), Sunil Kedar (animal husbandry), Balasaheb Patil (cooperation), Aslam Shaikh (textile), Abdul Sattar (MoS-rural development), Sanjay Bansode (MoS-environment) and Vishwajit Kadam (MoS-cooperation) had tested positive for COVID-19.

Meanwhile, Maharashtra in the last 24 hours clocked 21,907 fresh cases of the coronavirus taking the COVID-19 tally in the state to 11,88,015. Moreover, 18,01,180 people are under home quarantine and 39,831 people in institutional quarantine. Out of 57,86,147 laboratory samples, 11,88,015 have been tested positive (20.53 per cent) for COVID-19 till date.

However, fears have arisen over the spurt in the number of cases in Maharashtra's densely populated urban clusters like Mumbai and Thane, having reported 1,82,203 (+2211) and 1,68,805 (+1980) respectively.

On the other hand, in a bid to curb the surge in infections, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has announced the 'My family-My Responsibility' campaign with an aim to motivate the maximum number of people to adopt a new lifestyle for effective COVID-19 control.
