Corona situation in Maharashtra alarming: Union Health Minister

Mumbai, Thane, Pune, Nashik, Nagpur, Aurangabad and Sholapur are the districts worst affected, according to Vardhan. Here the call is for drastic action to save lives more than trying to fence the asymptomatic virus as the horse will have bolted.

NEW DELHI, May 6: Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan has said the coronavirus situation in Maharashtra is very critical. Of 36 districts, 34 are badly affected, he said. Vardhan was talking to State Health Minister Rajesh Tope on Wednesday.

The Union Minister pointed out seven districts needing special attention. They are Mumbai, Thane, Pune, Nashik, Nagpur, Aurangabad and Sholapur. Gadchiroli and Wardha are the only districts without any incidence and therefore classified as 'green' zones.

“Maharashtra is an area of concern for us at the moment as higher number of cases is being reported from the state. Experts from the central team are stationed there to help the state government. The teams from National Centre of Disease Control (NCDC) are also closely monitoring the situation, and looking at ways by which we can reduce the number of cases,” Vardhan said during the review talk.

In the State, there were 651 deaths and 16,758 cases till date, figures one-third of national data. Out of 651 deaths in the State, 412 were from Mumbai, amounting to more than half of the casualties State-wide.

The situation in Mumbai, one of the most congested and largest ciries in the world where hardly there is any space and people jostle to move around, is presenting an ideal playground for the virus. With crammed living conditions even in middle class dwellings, the lockdown and social distancing norms are reduced to political rituals. The city has witnessed a whole police station reporting infected. There is report of an acute shortage of blood in hospitals. Asia's biggest slums are also here, Mumbai's tinderbox!
