Nagpur: Maharashtra Health minister Rajesh Tope in an interview on Tuesday said that the state has no plans as such to introduce any additional curbs ahead of Christmas and new year celebrations.

He further added that the state would now focus more on testing of the travelers and the vaccination campaigns across the districts. Tope said, “Local authorities have to ensure that there is no violation of Covid-19 behaviour. Measures have to be in place to increase the vaccination against Covid-19.”

In the latest, Mumbai has extended its Covid-19 rules and restrictions till December 31 due to the scare of the Omicron variant in the city.

However, in a sign of relief, Maharashtra’s weekly positivity rate has dropped below one per cent last week and rate in most of the districts is below two per cent.

India has reported over 40 cases of the Omicron variant, with most of them from Maharashtra. On Monday, the state reported two new cases. The cases have travel history and were fully vaccinated. In Maharashtra, maximum number of cases have been reported from Mumbai city and most of the cases have travel history. A three-year-old kid has also been tested positive for the Omicron variant, raising alarm across the state.
