India COVID-19 cases at 8,356; 273 deaths so far. Maharashtra, Delhi hotspots. Check state-wise list

India coronavirus confirmed positive cases have crossed 8000-mark taking the toll to 8,356 including 273 deaths while 716 patients have recovered after getting infected with the deadly virus. In the last 24 hours, the nation witnessed 909 new cases, 34 more deaths. Out of the 8,356 confirmed cases mark, there are 7,367 active cases, 716 cured/discharged/migrated, according to the latest data by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. To deal coronavirus and contain the spread of cases, India entered a 21-day lockdown on March 24 after it was announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi telling citizens to remain in their homes as it is the only way which can restrict the spread of the deadly virus.

PM Modi on Saturday held a video conference with the chief ministers of all the states to decide the road further to deal coronavirus outbreak in the country. During the meeting, almost all the chief ministers suggested the Prime Minister to extend the lockdown for at least two more weeks. Speaking on the ongoing lockdown, the government said that if India had not imposed the lockdown, then there could have been lakhs of cases in the country. In a 4-hour meeting with the chief ministers, Modi said that the further strategy to fight coronavirus should be planned keeping in mind 'Jaan Bhi, Jahan Bhi' -- health, life and wellbeing.

Following yesterday's meeting, it is very likely now that the country may see Lockdown 2.0 with a time period of at least 2 weeks, however, a confirmation or announcement by the government is yet to be made. If happens, then as per some reports, the extended lockdown will be divided into zones namely -- red, orange and green zones depending on the number of COVID-19 cases and might allow limited services to function in the safe zones.
