As coronavirus COVID-19 cases are slowly declining in Maharashtra,
state Health Minister Rajesh Tope has hinted that Chief Minister
Uddhav Thackeray-led government in Maharashtra may extend the
COVID-19 lockdown till May 31.
It is to be noted that Maharashtra government had imposed
lockdown-like restrictions in the state from April 22 to May 1 to curb the
spread of coronavirus and break the chain of transmission.
The lockdown was later extended till May 15 owing to the huge spike in
COVID cases and the rising death toll in the state.
