The Maharashtra government intends to remove far more COVID restrictions.

With the dropping of the pandemic graph in Maharashtra, the authorities intend to ease the COVID-19-induced prohibitions this week. However, the restriction on wearing masks outside of houses is likely to be permanent until the WHO declares COVID-19 to be an "endemic" virus.


The government wrote to the states this week, encouraging them to reconsider the extra restrictions because India's positive rate had decreased substantially. Following that, the public healthcare system called a high-level conference meeting to consider whether to relax the bans.


We have indeed removed the majority of the bans in regions other than Mumbai and Pune. There are indeed certain regulations, such as a 50 percent limit in movie theatres and swimming pools. We are discussing removing the limits, but no formal decision has been made, "said Dr. Pradeep Vyas, additional chief secretary of Maharashtra.


Last week, during the meeting, a few members of the COVID-19 collaborative group recommended reducing limits slowly in segments until March. "A more dangerous version is unlikely to happen, but we must be cautious." So, we will declare some relief this week, but the total reduction of COVID-19 rules and regulations will be done in steps, "stated a COVID-19 task force official.


When the press questioned if the nation would remove the compulsory use of masks, Dr. Vyas stated that a decision had been made once the WHO declared the epidemic to be over. He stressed the need for wearing masks, saying, "Wearing a mask does not cause any damage." It is my best suggestion that the general population continues to use masks that safeguard against air pollution and other airborne infections.


From February 12, 2022, to February 18, 2022, the weekly positivity rate in Maharashtra was 4 percent. While big cities have seen a decrease in COVID-19 positive cases, rural areas continue to see a rise. Amravati has the biggest seven-day positivity rate in Maharashtra state, at 17.8 percent.
