New Delhi: On May 17 — the date when lockdown 3.0 is supposed to come to an end — India will reach over 50 days under lockdown. Will there be another extension or will it be finally over? This is one question lurking. There is no definite answer, but according to experts, India is supposed to overcome 97% of the threat by May end. So, in all likelihood, this could be the last extension of the lockdown. But it is unlikely, that all states will come out of the lockdown on May 18. It will happen in a staggered manner, the way it has been happening. The country will come out of the lockdown zone-wise.
