Maharashtra Can Go Into Another Lockdown If Current Situation Persists, Says CM Uddhav Thackeray

Mumbai: “If the Covid-19 situation remains the same, Maharashtra can get into another lockdown,” said Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray on Friday in his address to the residents at 8:30 pm. This comes hours after eateries, bars and restaurants in Pune were announced shut for seven days starting April 3 in view of a substantial rise in COVID-19 cases recently.
