After Thane, now a Janata Curfew will be imposed in Maharashtra’s Jalgaon district. The curfew will start on March 11 at 8 pm and end on March 15 at 8 am, reported ANI.

Emergency services, MPSC, and other Departments’ exams shall be exempted from the curfew, said Jalgaon’s District Collector Abhijit Raut.

Earlier in the day, Thane Municipal Commissioner imposed a complete lockdown till March 31 in COVID-19 hotspot areas in Thane city. So far 16 areas were marked as a hotspot in the city.

The order, issued by Thane Municipal Commissioner Vipin Sharma, said the decision was taken due to the rise in COVID-19 cases in these areas in the past few days.

After recording over 10,000 new coronavirus cases for the last three days, Maharashtra March 8 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.

This resurgence in COVID-19 cases has made the state government all the more vigilant. Last month, the BMC tightened their COVID-19 guidelines, and Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray as well in his address to the public has requested them to follow all the protocol religiously.

A number of districts like Amravati and Pune in the month of February imposed night curfews and week-long lockdowns, respectively.
