While talking to the media recently, CM Uddhav Thackeray said that he doesn't wish to impose a lockdown and have no intention of doing so, but given the growing number of patients, there is a possibility of increased strain on the existing health infrastructure. The government has instructed every district administration to expand the health facilities and make the necessary provisions.
Meanwhile, The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation has prohibited public and private Holi celebrations. Talking about the celebration of Good Friday in the state, the government has informed that if the church is smaller in size, then a special prayer meet should be held in the presence of only 10-25 persons, and four to five special can be organised.
