Lockdown in India could be extended by 2 weeks, says PM Modi in meeting with CMs on coronavirus

Lockdown in India could be extended by two weeks after April 14, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said at a meeting via video conferencing with the state Chief Ministers today, amid rising cases of the coronavirus. The prime minister is also expected to address the nation tonight at 8 pm. He is likely to make an announcement on extending the lockdown in India. Minutes after the meeting concluded, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted: “PM has taken the correct decision to extend lockdown. Today, India’s position is better than many developed countries because we started lockdown early. If it is stopped now, all gains would be lost. To consolidate, it is important to extend it.”
