Maharashtra, which has just managed to contain its huge Coronavirus outbreak, will consider if it should allow transport to and from Delhi, which is witnessing a flare-up in cases for more than a month. The state will take a call on whether it would allow flights, train and road travel to Delhi within eight days, said cabinet Minister Vijay Waddetiwar.
“Along with Delhi, we are also looking at the condition in Gujarat. If Gujarat declares lockdown, then people will anyway not be able to come out of the state or go in,” added the minister, who handles the Relief and Rehabilitation portfolio.
Delhi is currently logging the highest number of fresh infections every day. The numbers — on an upward movement since the end of October — had breached the 8000-mark earlier this month.
Data showed that yesterday, the national capital logged 6,746 cases, accumulated over a period of 24 hours, Maharashtra, in comparison, logged 5,753 cases.
