Thane: Lockdown imposed in 16 COVID-19 hotspots till March 31

The Thane administration announced a lockdown in 16 hotspots of the district from March 9 till March 31.

Amid rising COVID-19 cases in Maharashtra, the Thane administration Monday announced a lockdown in 16 hotspots of the district from March 9 till March 31. The order to implement lockdown strictly was given by Municipal Commissioner Dr Vipin Sharma.

After restrictions were eased as part of the ‘unlock’ phases, parts of Maharashtra started to witness a spike in daily coronavirus cases, with Thane district being among the worst-hit. A total of 16 localities in three circles of Thane have been declared hotspots (restricted areas) due to rising cases.

The Kalwa Ward Committee area in Circle One has hotspots in Witwa, Ainagar, Suryanagar, Kharegaon area, while Chendni Koliwara, Wagle and Srinagar area. Circle two have hotspots such as Lodha Amara, Hiranandani Estate, Hiranandani Meadows Housing Complex and Lokmanya. Savarkarnagar Ward Committee Area hotspots are at Dostanagar, Shivai Nagar, Chorus Tower, Kolabad and Rustomji Vrindavan.

After recording over 10,000 new coronavirus cases for the past few days, Maharashtra on Monday reported a dip as 8,744 new infections came to light. The caseload in the state rose to 22,28,471, while the death toll reached 52,500 with 22 fatalities, a health department official said. As many as 9,068 persons were discharged from hospitals, taking the total of recoveries to 20,77,112.

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) is having a tough time making people follow protocols in Mumbai. Officials in the BMC say that educated people too in the city aren’t willing to stay in home quarantine, which has become a headache for the civic body.
