In their new post on Tuesday, Mumbai Police posted a creative coronavirus graphic. They captioned the graphic inspired by Manisha Koirala’s 1996 superhit song ‘Aaj Main Upar‘ from the film Khamoshi: The Musical. The graphic featured the virus saying, “Aaj main upar cuz mask hai neeche.”

There has been a rapid increase in the number of coronavirus cases across the state. With people not adhering to the Covid guidelines and not wearing masks in public places, they have become a huge cause of worry.
From last month, the Mumbai Police has started challaning people not wearing masks in public places. The police had announced that not wearing masks would invite a fine of Rs 200 for Mumbaikars.
The Centre has already asked all states and union territories to adopt a district-centric approach to fight the upward swing in cases.
Each district, irrespective of whether it is seeing a surge or is with low burden, should formulate an action plan with clear timelines and responsibilities, it said.
Health secretary Rajesh Bhushan on Tuesday said eight of the top 10 Covid-19 high-burden districts of the country are from Maharashtra and that Delhi, taken as one district, is also on the list.
He said the 10 districts with maximum active Covid cases are Pune (59,475), Mumbai (46,248), Nagpur (45,322), Thane (35,264), Nashik (26,553), Aurangabad (21,282), Bengaluru Urban (16,259), Nanded (15,171), Delhi (8,032) and Ahmednagar (7,952).
