Rampant lockdown due to Covid-19 in the state of Maharashtra is likely to end and the state has chalked out a five-level plan for the same. The plan has already come into force from this Monday. While the state will observe ‘lockdown’ until June 15th, a couple of relaxations have been allowed in certain districts on the basis of the covid positivity rate and the occupancy of beds with oxygen support. According to an order from the state government, the Public Health Department must provide a declaration on the case positivity rate as well as on the oxygenated beds occupation for the various districts of the state on every Thursday. Based on the info provided by the Public Health Department, the authority entrusted with the responsibility of district management will be implementing the level and extent of curbs in their respective administrative units.

“The local administration can take a call on easing or tightening restrictions based on the situation. It must decide on easing the norms based on the criteria and the five levels set under Break The Chain,” said Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray yesterday.

CM Uddhav Thackeray stated that the pandemic’s intensity varies across the state’s length and breadth. Hence, those 5 unlocking levels were actually targeted towards breaking the chain of transmission and make sure that all social and economic pursuits were executed in an organized and disciplined manner.
