Coronavirus in Maharashtra : Mumbai local trains and buses to continue operations as per schedule

Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray made it clear that local train services, will not be suspended in Maharashtra on the wake of the rising cases of coronavirus in the state. Speaking to reporters after a high-end meeting to decide on measures to prevent the spread of the deadly virus in the state, the Chief Minister  said that public transport in Mumbai including local trains including metro rail, and monorail will be running as usual.

"Trains and buses are essential services so we are not stopping them as of now but if people don't listen to our advice and don't avoid unnecessary travel, then we will think about that too. Next 15-20 days are very crucial for us," Thackeray said. The newly elected Chief Minister said, that the government would be forced to take the "harsh decision" to stop bus and train services in Mumbai if people don't avoid unnecessary travel. Thackeray also called upon and the private sector should implement 'work-from-home' wherever possible, and the private sector would also attempt to reduce the number of people attending workplaces.
