The Maharashtra government plans to make the state mask-free soon. It is consulting top experts for advice on the pros and cons of this move. This process was started after Mumbai showed a massive fall in COVID-19 cases. The positivity rate dropped to 1% after 56 days of rising cases and at present, Mumbai has zero containment zones. The Maharashtra government is also taking a cue from other countries like the UK on the issue of compulsory masks.
