On Sunday evening, India positive cases toll surged to 26,917 including 826 deaths and 5,914 have recovered. Today, PM Modi will interact with chief ministers via conferencing to decide on the road ahead on coronavirus lockdown after May 3. The lockdown was earlier extended by 19 more days after the Prime Minister announced on April 14 in a televised address to the nation.
PM Modi had said if India wanted to fight this global crisis then the lockdown would have to be extended in the country so that its spread to a mass level could be contained. His call was supported by almost all the state governments who were of the view that it was necessary to impose a nation-wide lockdown. Therefore, all eyes will be on PM Modi's meeting who is expected to talk with chief ministers from 10 am onwards to decide whether India will further extend the lockdown or some more relaxations will be given to the people.
