As the COVID-19 cases in Mumbai continued to rise, the authorities announced fresh restrictions earlier this week.

As per the new guidelines, Maharashtra will have a weekend lockdown from 8 pm Friday to 7 am Monday - with no movement except essential services.

As the weekend lockdown sets in the state, the hustle and bustle of Mumbai disappeared. Several roads and railway stations looked deserted in the city.
