The world is currently fighting with deadly pandemic. To curb the spread of COVID-19 in India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken the step to extend the nationwide lockdown till May 3. Some of the restrictions might be lifted in the coming days, depending upon the graph of COVID-19.
The lockdown emphasizes on maintaining social distancing by restricting the movement of people in public places.
