Complete lockdown to remain imposed in Nagpur City Police

The Maharashtra government on Thursday decided to impose a weeklong lockdown in the state’s Nagpur district from 15 to 21 March owing to the spike in novel coronavirus cases.
However, essential services such as vegetable and fruit shops and milk booths will stay open.
“Complete lockdown to remain imposed in Nagpur City Police Commissionerate area from March 15 to March 21,” Nagpur Guardian Minister Nitin Raut said, adding that the essential services will continue in the district.
This comes a day after the Shiv Sena warned of stringent restrictions in an editorial in its mouthpiece “Saamana”.
“Is Maharashtra heading towards another lockdown? Cases across the country are increasing and Maharashtra’s contribution is major, which is a cause of concern… People should maintain self-discipline and put some restrictions on themselves. Take care, else lockdown or strict restrictions are unavoidable,” the editorial said.
Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray also indicated that more parts of the state could go into lockdown as virus cases have been on the rise in the state for nearly a month.
“In the coming days, there might be some places where a lockdown is inevitable. We will take the decision in the next couple of days,” CM Thackeray said after receiving his first shot of the Covid-19 vaccine.
Meanwhile, Maharashtra on Wednesday recorded 13,659 new Covid-19 cases, the highest one-day spike this year, which took the state’s tally to 22,52,057.
Nagpur District recorded a fresh upsurge in coronavirus cases, with 1,710 people testing positive for the deadly virus on Wednesday. Vidarbha’s 11 districts together also recorded a new high of 3,934 Covid-19 cases on the day.
