The coronavirus has affected over 5,195 people in India and death toll has risen to 149. The nation is currently under the lockdown till April 14 and the further decision over lockdown being lifted up or getting extended will be likely to announce by end of this week by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
However, during crucial all-party meeting, Prime minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said that it is not possible to withdraw the 21-day nationwide lockdown at one go. “The situation in the country is askin to a ‘social emergency’; it has necessitated tough decisions and we must continue to remain vigilant. States, district administrations and experts have suggested extension of the lockdown to contain spread of the virus,” PM Modi said.
