“We’re heading towards stage 3,” said State Health Minister Rajesh Tope

Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope on Saturday said we’re heading to stage three. Stage three also known as ‘community transmission’ is known to rapidly spread across groups.

Tope said, “Despite this if people still use public transport unnecessarily, we may have to think otherwise. We’re in stage two and are heading towards stage three.

Tope said as per the World Health Organisation (WHO) and guidelines issued by the Centre, the deadly virus survives in cool places for a longer period of time. He said, “Not just government offices, but people should also stop using air conditioning.”
