Health Minister Rajesh Tope has made a big statement on whether masks will be made compulsory in the state again. A decision is likely to be taken to make masks compulsory in crowded places in the state, and Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray will interact with the District Collector today. Rajesh Tope said that the decision of the mask will be taken after this dialogue.
After the Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with the Chief Minister of the country today to take stock of the Corona situation, Rajesh Tope told the media about the mask. He said the situation in Maharashtra is good at present, the number of corona patients is not increasing. However, we are going to increase the testing. Tope said children between the ages of six and 12 would be vaccinated.
Corona infections are on the rise again in the country and Delhi has been followed by the Karnataka government. The Maharashtra government had lifted all corona restrictions in the state from Gudipadva. Since then masks have not been mandatory in the state. But now that Corona patients are being found all over the country, all eyes are on the Chief Minister’s decision.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi while interacting with the Chief Minister today said that vaccination is an effective measure against corona and instructed the states to speed up vaccination of children. Prime Minister Modi also instructed to emphasize on vaccination in schools for vaccination of children. As Modi has appealed for carona care, every state has started efforts to keep corona patients under control.
