Lockdown May Get Extension for Two-weeks to Fight Coronavirus

In this war against COVID-19 India is under a lockdown that started on 23rd March, and initially was announced for 21 days by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, hoping that things would get in control by 14 April. But ever increasing cases of people tested positive for COVID-19 each day has raised red flags of concern and urgency towards the containment of this pandemic. Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a video conference on 11 April with the Chief Ministers of all states to discuss the scenario and it is expected that the PM might have taken a call to extend the nationwide lockdown for atleast 2 weeks from 14 April.
