Corona: Total cases in India has crossed 20,000 and Maharashtra re-imposes lockdown in Mumbai and Pune

The total number of coronavirus  positive cases in India rose to 20,471 by Wednesday, with 652 of them dead, according to Worldometer.

Maharashtra continues being the worst hit state with 5,221 positives cases and 251 deaths, followed by Gujarat (2,178), Delhi (2,156), Rajasthan (1,659), Madhya Pradesh (1,552) Tamil Nadu (1,596), and in Uttar Pradesh 1,294.

In Maharashtra, state capital Mumbai alone has more than 3,000 positive cases, out of which 10 were reported dead today.

“In view of the large number of people commuting because of the relaxation issued under order dated 17 April (which allowed a partial lifting of the lockdown) and also the imminent threat of further spread of the pandemic, it is hereby directed that in Mumbai Metropolitan Region and Pune Metropolitan Region, the order issued on 17 April will not apply and the position prevailing prior to the issuing of the 17 April order shall be reinstated,” said an order by state chief secretary Ajoy Mehta.

On 17 April, the Maharashtra government had issued guidelines on partial lifting of the lockdown from 20 April.

With Tuesday’s order, all these activities will be disallowed again in MMR and PMR, the two largest metropolitan areas in the state.
