Rajesh Tope said that, ‘When the number of Omicron infected reaches 1000, then the situation will become very bad. If the patients of Corona and Omicron continue to grow like this and the daily oxygen requirement will reach 800 metric tons, then once again it will become necessary to impose lockdown in the state.
Rajesh Tope, Health Minister of Maharashtra
In view of the increasing threat of corona and new variants of corona in Maharashtra, the fear of lockdown has arisen once again. Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope (Rajesh Tope) has given more air. Rajesh Tope has said that a few days ago 600 to 700 corona cases were being reported every day in the state. Now this number has reached 1400. Of these, the number of Omicron patients is 80. That is, the number of patients of Omicron is also close to the figure of hundred. When the number of Omicron infected reaches 1000, the situation will get worse. If the patients of Corona and Omicron continue to grow like this and the oxygen requirement will reach 800 metric tons every day, then once again the lockdown in the state.

Rajesh Tope was talking to reporters in Jalna. Once again answering the question of imposition of lockdown, he told a matter of relief that even though the cases of corona are increasing rapidly but these patients are not reaching ICU in hospitals. Nor has the need to be given oxygen come to the fore. If the demand for oxygen increases, then the lockdown will be considered again.
‘If such a situation arises then there will be a lockdown’
Rajesh Tope said that on the basis of past experiences, it has been decided that when the daily oxygen requirement reaches up to 800 metric tonnes, then it will be necessary to impose lockdown. But the speed of Omicron’s spread is very fast. In such a situation, if the need of 500 metric tonnes also arises, then lockdown can be considered.
‘If you want to avoid lockdown then follow Corona rules (CAB)’
Rajesh Tope said that, ‘The speed of the spread of Omicron is very fast. Omicron is growing at double the speed in a day abroad. In France, a country smaller in area than Maharashtra, one lakh cases of Omicron are being reported in a day. We do not want people to face lockdown or harsh restrictions, so my appeal to people is to follow COVID Appropriate Behavior (CAB) and wear face masks.
