INDIA Team Latestly|

On May 30, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray cautioned people against a third wave of Covid-19 infections, asking them not to lower their guard. He announced that the restrictions imposed in the state to curb the spread of the infection will be extended till June 15. Thackeray said that the state government will take stock of the situation in each district and may tighten or relax the curbs in specific areas. He said that while Covid-19 cases are decreasing in the cities, rural areas of the state are seeing a spike. Thackeray said that if the state is hit by a more severe third wave of Covid-19 infections, it may face a crisis of medical oxygen. Advising caution to prevent children from getting infected, he said, "The third wave (of Covid-19) can infect kids. But one should not worry as experts say they have more immunity. But if they get infected, it will be through us. So we have to take care of that.” With more than 8,000 children catching the virus in May in Ahmednagar, the state has started taking extra steps to minimise the impact.
