Lockdown may continue in hotspots, Mumbai still glum
Coronavirus cases in India crossed 30,000 with more than 1,000 deaths. The lockdown, which was supposed to end on May 3, may be extended after many state government chief ministers had a virtual meeting with the prime minister Narendra Modi.
Maharashtra registered the highest number of cases which are more than 9,000 and reported more than 400 deaths. Out of these positive cases, more than 6,500 are in Mumbai alone. The city reels under many hot spots and containment zones.
Delhi, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan also show a rising trend of Covid 19 cases. Though few districts have been announced as Coronavirus-free, new cases add to the worry of the governments.
The government did restart work at few manufacturing units and businesses but full fledged work would not be possible in the coming few months.
