As cases see a huge spike all over India, Maharashtra remains one of the worst-hit states. The state recorded its highest single-day spike on Sunday with 63,294 cases. The rising cases have resulted in intense pressure on the health care system and hence, the CM has dictated a curfew and imposition of Section 144 throughout the state. For clearer instructions, a notice has been shared by the official handle of CMO Maharashtra on various social media platforms.
