Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray of Maharashtra, on Tuesday, said the state government will impose Section 144 for 15 days from 8 pm Wednesday.

He said that emergency services will remain open between 7 am and 8 pm daily.

Thackeray said that the state government is continuously upgrading the healthcare infrastructure but it is under pressure due to the situation.

“There is a shortage of medical oxygen, beds and the demand for Remdesivir has also increased,” he said during a video address.

Section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) is issued in urgent cases of security threat or emergency and bars the assembly of five or more people in an area where it has been imposed.

The Maharashtra CM said that Public transport such as buses and trains would remain operational for emergency services, while petrol pumps, financial institutions associated with SEBI and construction work would also continue. Hotel and restaurants would remain closed and only take-away/home deliveries would be allowed.

Maharashtra has the maximum number of active Covid-19 cases (5,93,042) in India. The state had reported 63,294 infections on Sunday, however, the number of positive cases dropped significantly to 51,751 on Monday.
