State minister Aaditya Thackeray says the priority of the government is to tackle the pandemic situation and other things are secondary.

Asked about the opposition’s criticism that the government was unable to properly tackle the COVID-19 crisis, Thackeray said, “Let them do their work, we will keep on doing our work. Our priority at present is to deal with the COVID-19 situation and break the virus chain, other things are secondary.” The Shiv Sena MLA also launched an app developed by the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) for online hospital bed allocation and ambulance booking. Addressing a COVID-19 review meeting at the TMC headquarters here, Thackeray stressed on the need for increased contact-tracing and maintenance of good facilities at the quarantine centres.

He asked the civic officials to periodically inspect the quarantine centres and check various facilities, including the food supplied there. He also suggested for increasing the testing capacity.
