No plan to extend 21-day coronavirus lockdown, says government

The 21-day lockdown came into effect on March 25 after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s address to the nation where he stressed on the need to break the chain of infection. The government has said that reports claiming that government will extend the 21-day lockdown are “baseless”. The lockdown was imposed to check the spread of coronavirus disease Covid-19.

The Press Information Bureau (PIB) of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting tweeted, saying Cabinet Secretary Rajiv Gauba has denied media reports claiming that the government will extend the lockdown.

“There are rumours & media reports, claiming that the Government will extend the #Lockdown21 when it expires. The Cabinet Secretary has denied these reports, and stated that they are baseless,” it said. The 21-day lockdown is aimed at checking the spread of the coronavirus.

“I am surprised to see such reports, there is no such plan of extending the lockdown,” Cabinet Secretary Rajiv Gauba told a news agency.
