Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has urged people to behave in a Covid-appropriate manner, warning that if the number of coronavirus cases in the state rises, the state will be forced to reimpose a lockdown. Thackeray made the remarks after unfurling the national flag at the state secretariat ‘Mantralaya’ on the 75th anniversary of the country’s independence. “The majority of the COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted. However, the danger is far from finished. As new strains of the virus are discovered in other nations, we must remain vigilant to ensure that the threat does not reach us. Given the scarcity of medical oxygen, if the number of daily COVID-19 cases rises, the state will be placed under lockdown, according to Thackeray.
