On Wednesday, April 20, Maharashtra Health Minister, Rajesh Tope while interacting with the media stated that he has held a detailed review of the COVID-19 condition in Maharashtra. 

He added that there isn't any need to worry since there hasn't been a considerable surge in cases. According to him, the situation is completely under control. 

In addition to this, he remarked that they are vaccinating those in the 12-15 and 15-18 age group. 

This comment comes in the backdrop of the Centre writing a letter to five states, including Maharashtra, advising it to maintain a strict watch and take pre-emptive action, if needed, in the areas of concern.

In the letter, Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan, urged states to allow the five-fold strategy of test-track-treat-vaccination and adherence to coronavirus-appropriate behaviour, with a particular emphasis on wearing of masks in crowded areas.

On the other hand, data revealed by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), brings to light that only 17 per cent adolescent have taken the first dose in the age group of 12-14 years within a month.

In accordance with the data, of the 3,95,883 beneficiaries in the age group, only 66,345 (16.76 per cent) have taken the first dose, while 275 (0.07 per cent) have taken the second dose of the vaccine in the city.
