Maha: Doctor in soup for asking people to stay indoors
Juhu: A Juhu doctor recently fell in soup over a social media post where he asked Mumbai residents to stay indoors for the next few days due to the increase in the number of COVID cases in the state.
The post did not go down well with the authorities, who instructed him to take down his post and not to spread such messages as the people may actually consider staying indoors than going out to take the Covid-19 vaccination centres.
The number of COVID cases has increased and many are fearing it to be a second surge of COVID. The authorities are trying to ensure that people do not panic as the country has already started its vaccination drive to fight against coronavirus and to contain the pandemic. Under such circumstances, the municipal commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal has also stated that there is no need to panic for Mumbaikars and they should take the vaccine.
