  • | Wednesday | 12th May, 2021

All schools, colleges, other training institutes, playgrounds and gardens will remain closed along with marriage halls and lawns.

Amid the surging cases of coronavirus disease (Covid-19), Nashik will go under strict lockdown-like restrictions for 12 days beginning Wednesday, Maharashtra cabinet minister Chhagan Bhujbal said.

Bhujbal said the number of Covid-19 positive cases has risen significantly in the district compared to the previous year. "Around 33,000-34,000 cases were added recently," he said.

The decision was taken after at least 48 people died due to the Covid-19 infection in the city.

Nashik on Tuesday reported new 6,482 Covid-19 cases and 141 deaths.
