Ready for Relaxation on Restriction with the low case in district of Maharashtra

Ready for Relaxation on Restriction with the low case in district of Maharashtra

Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope said the state government is likely to relax Level 3 curbs in 14 districts where the active patient's growth rate has been 1 percent or below it in the last three weeks.

The Health Minister said that the public health dept had submitted the proposal for this two days ago.

At present, almost all districts and regions in Maharashtra are under level-3 restrictions. Last month, the state government announced a five-level plan to ease restrictions per weekly COVID-19 positivity rate data and oxygen bed occupancy in the district.

As per government order, cities and districts have a positivity rate of five percent. The oxygen bed occupancy in a section of less than 25 percent comes under level-1, where curbs can be lifting completely.

The level-3 category is applicable for places where the positivity rate is five percent to 10 percent, and the oxygen bed occupancy is more than 40 percent.
