Uddhav Thackeray said that Maharashtra has the highest death toll. A lot of pressure has come on the state. Today there is pressure on us from all sides, there is a lack of oxygen. Till when we will keep discussing only. If this time is out of our hands, then it will be a problem. He said that we have to increase vaccination a lot. Maybe we can’t finish it but we can definitely reduce the corona wave. So far, we do not know whether we have reached the peak of this wave. Do not know where it will reach.
How long will we be able to win the battle against Corona, difficult to say: Uddhav
Uddhav Thackeray said that due to stubbornness and restraint last year, we had shown control over Covid-19. But the wave this time is quite dangerous. It is difficult to say how many cases will be there after 15 days. We will fight and win this war. The increasing number of patients is frightening. Medicines are falling short. We are going to increase this healthcare in the coming days. We are doing whatever is possible. Now the time has come to take drastic steps. I am not talking about lockdown but some restrictions are necessary. Daily bread is important. It is also important to save lives. Saving lives is the biggest issue today. We tell you which things will be left and what will be the ban.
