PM Modi announced a 21-day lockdown of the whole country on 25th March and was to end on 15th April 2020 and news is coming in that after consulting with all Cms of the country, the decision has been taken that the lockdown should be extended to 30th April 2020.

PM Modi held a video conference with all the chief ministers of the states of India and apparently have come to the conclusion that the lockdown must be extended for another 15 days, at least.


The news has not yet been made official by the government but Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal’s tweet pretty much confirms it, more or else. He took to Twitter to express his agreement with the decision of the lockdown extension. He said-

“PM has taken the correct decision to extend lockdown. Today, India’s position is better than in many developed countries because we started lockdown early. If it is stopped now, all gains would be lost. To consolidate, it is imp to extend it.”

According to PTI, the number of reported cases in India totaled to about 7,510 and at least 250 people have died. 700 people have been cured or discharged but the numbers still look quite grim, with not huge progress made with the cure or vaccine.


While addressing the leaders of various parties who have representation in Parliament, PM Modi had made it abundantly clear that the lockdown cannot and will not be lifted in one go and made sure that everyone knew that the clear priority of his government was to “save each and every life”.

Karnataka CM also showed his support to the Central Govt and said that his government will do everything in their power to make sure this virus was contained and eliminated. In a tweet he said,

“My cabinet and I attended the video conference about #covid19 with PM @Narendramodi today. We discussed vital strategies and actions to implement around the state. We are doing and will do everything in our control to tackle this pandemic”.


While India fights back COVID-19, the tolls worldwide are heavily alarming. US is at a staggering 503,177 cases with almost 19000 people dead and Spain is now on number two with 161,852 cases and almost 16,000 dead.
