On Friday, Maharashtra reported three new cases of Coronavirus, taking its total to 52 --highest in the country. The PM Narendra Modi made the government take up precautionary measures and citizens have been asked to enter the self-quarantine mode.

According to the health minister Rajesh Tope, around five cases under treatment were improving and would be discharged soon, "proving that COVID-19 can be cured". As Maharashtra continued to lead in the number of active cases, Tope appealed to people to refrain from stepping out of their homes as 'isolation' was the key to battling the COVID-19 virus.
