NASHIK: In a bid to check a steady rise in new Covid-19 cases, 17 villages in Parner taluka of Maharashtra’s Ahmednagar district opted for a 10-day voluntary lockdown from Friday evening.
Sakur — a market and business hub — and 16 other villages around it collectively decided to impose the lockdown as a precautionary measure against another wave of the pandemic.
The 16 villages put together have registered at least 30-35 cases daily for some time now. On July 29, the number shot up to 63 new cases, prompting the administration and elected representatives to discuss the gravity of the situation.
