These decisions were taken as a precautionary measure, the chief minister said, adding that the epidemic was successfully contained in China’s Wuhan city after it was virtually shut down.


Event organisers have been asked not to organise social, political, and religious gatherings, the chief minister said, adding that permissions granted earlier stand cancelled.


“People have been advised not to visit malls, hotels, and restaurants,” he said.


Bus and train services fall under essential services and cannot be stopped, the CM said, while urging people to avoid unnecessary travelling.


He also mentioned that the symptoms of those who have tested positive in the state are mild and some of them have no symptoms of the disease at all.


At present four confirmed coronavirus patients are admitted to isolation wards at Kasturba Hospital in Mumbai, ten at Naidu Hospital in Pune, and three at the Government Medical College and Hospital in Nagpur.

Of the 17 patients, 15 had returned from places such as Dubai, France, and the United States.

Isolation wards have been kept ready at district hospitals, government hospitals in urban areas, and some private hospitals as well, the chief minister said.

As per the government’s advisory, passengers arriving from China, South Korea, Italy, France, Germany, Spain, and Iran are quarantined whether they show any symptoms of the disease or not.

“We will ask the centre to include the US and Dubai in the list since patients diagnosed as positive in the state have arrived from these two countries,” Thackeray said.
