As the lockdown has been extended across the country for two more weeks from May 4, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray aims to make the state virus-free by May 31. The Union Health Ministry has identified 14 districts as red zones, 16 as orange zones and six as green zones in Maharashtra. 

As of May 3, Maharashtra has reported nearly 12,974 COVID-19 cases while the death toll of the state has risen to 548. Of these cases, almost 8,800 cases have been reported from Mumbai alone. 

Meanwhile, Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray intends to turn the whole state into a green zone and has asked the administration to draft an action plan regarding the same. 

Earlier on Saturday, the Maharashtra government asked the district collectors and administrators to demarcate the containment zones. On Sunday, Uddhav Thackeray stressed on the effective management of the containment zones. 

“Out effort will be to turn Maharashtra into a coronavirus free state. We must redraft out a strategy to ensure that the state turns into a green zone,” Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray was quoted in a Time of India report as saying. 

The Chief Minister had a couple of meetings with top bureaucrats led by chief secretary Ajoy Mehta via video conferencing. Moreover, Thackeray also held meetings with the divisional commissioners and district collectors across the state on the measures taken by the state government to tackle the coronavirus outbreak. 

In the meeting, the Chief Minister called for more strict measures to implement the lockdown. Maharashtra is in the third stage of the lockdown, a senior official informed while adding that there is an increase in the number of cases and fatalities. 

Earlier, 3 constables deployed outside the private residence of Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray have been tested positive for the coronavirus. This happened nearly a month after a tea vendor in the vicinity of ‘Matoshree’ was tested COVID-19 positive.
