Tuesday

There are murmurs (read, loud conjectures on the telly) about the government’s possible decisions regarding the lockdown on 14 April, when the ongoing quarantine period is scheduled to end. Some say it’ll be a ‘staggered end’ where different parts of the country will see different end dates to the lockdown. Others say it will simply be called off. I doubt the value of both, personally. If we are to contain this virus the lockdown must go on for another few weeks. India’s case and death counts are both still on the rise.
