Patients at a COVID-19 care centre in Shegaon of Maharashtra's Buldhana district on Friday staged a protest allegedly for the delay in getting their lunch.
According to Additional District Collector Dinesh Gite, the delay took place due to an issue with the contractor's gas cylinder.
"I have been told that the contractor's gas cylinder was not working, hence there was the delay. But we are doing a thorough enquiry," Gite said.
As many as 15,817 new COVID-19 cases were reported in Maharashtra in the last 24 hours, taking the total number of active cases to 1,10,485.
