PM Narendra Modi extended lockdown till May 3rd. He said Statewise assessment of corona cases will be made till Apr 20 and gradual relaxation will be implemented if rise in cases is controlled effectively. It means states have to impose lockdown more strictly and bring down the corona cases drastically. Now the ball is in state governments courts. States should see that the curve to flatten. There shouldn’t be any new cases registered and recovery of existing patients by end of second phase of lockdown inorder to lift the lockdown and not to extend it. The hotspots have to be focused and eliminated one after one. Hopefully, Telugu states will check the corona cases by end of April and we would be free of the dreadful pandemic.
