Coronavirus Update- 5 Major Reasons Why PM Modi Extended The Lockdown
Even as the 21-day nationwide lockdown in the wake of covid-19 pandemic has pushed the country into a socioeconomic dilemma, multisectoral authorities across states are against lifting the restrictions.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, after holding a discussion with the state chief ministers on Saturday about a plan for the exit from the lockdown, said that there seems to be a consensus amongst the states on its extension by another two weeks.

The World Health Organization had last month called lockdown measures as creation of a “second window of opportunity" to contain the virus and cautioned that early lifting of restriction may cause its resurgence. “We call on all countries who have introduced so-called “lockdown" measures to use this time to attack the virus," said Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the WHO.

* Testimony to this idea is a statistical analysis of the virus spread by Union Health Ministry that claims to curb the growing covid-19 cases in India. If India had not implemented either containment or nationwide lockdown, the cases growth would have been by 41% and we would have recorded 8.2 lakh covid-19 cases by April 15.

* If there were only containment measures but no lockdown – India would have recorded 1.2 lakh cases by Apr 15. Since we have acted there are 7,447 cases on April 11.

* Addressing the nation, PM Modi said that the nation has to ensure that more hotspots aren't formed. "Till 20th April, all districts, localities, states will be closely monitored, as to how strictly they are implementing norms. States which will not let hotspots increase, they could be allowed to let some important activities resume, but with certain conditions," the PM said.

* While speaking on the spread of the virus, PM Modi said that health experts and governments are still trying to figure out how to move ahead. "We need to figure how to beat the virus and move on with our lives," PM said.

* PM Modi also requested the youth of India should take care of the old in India to ensure that they don't contract COVID-19. "They are the most vulnerable and it's our duty to protect them," the PM said, further requstiong people to download the Aroghya Sethu mobile app.
