What to Expect:
Recently, the Prime Minister held a meeting with the chief ministers of various states to discuss the extension of the lockdown and the future course of action to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic. Since states such as Odisha, Maharashtra, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Punjab and Arunachal Pradesh have already extended the lockdown, the Prime Minister is most likely to announce the extension of a nationwide lockdown.
Another likelihood is that the Prime Minister might announce a staggered lifting of the lockdown in his address on April 14 so the economy can slowly revive. The Centre is also compiling suggestions and inputs from several ministries and states on graded relaxations in the second phase of the lockdown slated to begin from April 15.
