Uddhav Thackeray: Lockdown in Maharashtra will be lifted in stepwise manner

The coronavirus induced lockdown in the state will be lifted in a stepwise manner, said Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Saturday.

The state continues to face the threat of COVID-19 and added that he does not want a covid-19 second wave in the state, said the CM.

It is more important how to lift the lockdown than when to come out of it, Thackeray said in a video interaction with a team of doctors who are part of the task force set up by his government to combat COVID-19.

"Those who hurriedly lifted the lockdown had to impose it again. I don't want a second wave of coronavirus in the state," the chief minister said.

"The state government's 'Mission Begin Again' initiative is being implemented step-by-step. The momentum of chase the virus' campaign should not stop since the threat of the virus still persists and monsoon is still active in the state. We have to be careful about rain-related ailments as well," he said.

The Maharashtra government last month extended the lockdown in the state till August 31.

Till Saturday, the state reported 5,84,754 COVID-19 cases and 19,749 deaths due to the disease, as per official figures.
