Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has said that the number of positive cases in the state is increasing, but on the other hand the recovery process has been “successfully accelerated.”
In a video conference, the CM said that many patients are recovering at a good pace and some of them have been discharged from the hospital.
The total number of such cases in the state has risen to 160, with seven more individuals testing positive for coronavirus in Maharashtra, PTI reported.
आपल्याकडे काही केसेस वाढत आहेत पण त्याचबरोबर एक दिलासा देणारी माहिती मी सांगू इच्छितो की जी लोकं वेळेमध्ये आली ते आता बरेचसे व्यवस्थित आहेत आणि त्यातील काही जणांना पूर्ण बरे होऊन आपण घरी पाठवत आहोत. pic.twitter.com/1voC11aNQn

Of these seven new COVID-19 patients, five are from Mumbai and two from Nagpur, health department officials said 28 people were found infected with coronavirus in different parts of the state.
In Nagpur, both new patients, including a girl, are in close contact with the man who tested positive on Thursday.
The Deputy CM had recently issued a warning to the people saying that if people keep avoiding the lockout, they will not hesitate to deploy the army to control the crowd.
