We can’t afford to have second coronavirus wave in Maharashtra: Thackeray

Thane: Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday asked the people not to lower their guards against COVID-19 and said that although the infection cases were going down in the state, the pandemic was far from over. He said several countries were facing the second wave of coronavirus now, but the state cannot afford to have another such wave.


Thackeray said this while virtually performing the ‘bhoomi pujan’ ceremony of an art gallery in Mira Bhayandar township in Thane district of the state.

Even if the number of coronavirus cases in the state is going down, the pandemic is not over yet. If you look at the global situation, many countries are facing the second wave now. But we cannot afford to have a second wave,” he said.


“Therefore, people should not take things lightly. They should follow all the guidelines and norms,” he add.

The state government has so far relaxed several curbs. But the use of face mask is a must and it should continue for a longer period for the safety of people. We have to make sure that no second wave hits us,” the chief minister said.


Thackeray said that when the pandemic began, there were only three testing laboratories in the state.
