Maharashtra has detected around about 2600 new Coronavirus cases.
Being already the epicentre of this deadly virus, there hasn’t been any update of its perpetual decrease.
If anything, the state is only surging high on charts when it comes to the number of deaths.
Its a shame, nonetheless, that every day there has been an unbelievable rise in new cases and Saturday, that is the 23rd of May, is one of them.
It crossed to be the second-highest single-day spike. This has taken Maharashtra’s coronavirus count to an insane 47,000.
What Has Dawned Upon Them
The worst-hit state in the entire country, it has the most number of patients, positive and dead.
With 60 deaths recorded on Saturday, the death toll in Maharashtra alone has climbed to a staggering 1577.
This is, unfortunately, the seventh consecutive day when the state reported more than around 2000 new cases.
The death cases have doubled in merely 2 weeks, said Maharashtra’s Chief Minister, Uddhav Thackeray on his interaction with the BMC-run hospitals.
He stressed upon setting up field hospitals in the future time and mentioned that the BMC had been utterly following the regulations provided by the Centre.
He went on to say that the BMC has arranged for ICUs and isolation beds at several places in the entire state.
He even asked civic agency officials to fasten the preparations and keep dengue cases in check too since monsoon is round the corner.
Sadly, 18 policemen have suffered from the horrid virus and lost their lives.
Around about 1671 policemen and 174 officers have been infected as well when they were in duty and serving the state.
However, there has been good news amidst the calamity.
42 police officers and 500 constables who were earlier fighting with the deadly virus have recovered and are now safe.
