There is little news today if at all. Most people seem to finally be getting used to the quarantine. We see many still roaming the streets, still the numbers have reduced. Alas the quarantine period is itself about to end and there are mixed rumours about what will happen next. Schools and Colleges have already been closed up to the end of May—and, in some states, like Orissa, till mid-June. IT firms may be allowed to work and they will seize the opportunity undoubtedly. This could potentially lead to a second phase of COVID-19 cases even as some remain convinced the first phase is itself yet to peak. We will have definitive news two days hence. The atmosphere is normal, quite like a holiday, with nobody visible freaked out. In two days that may change; whether it does so for the better or worse depends entirely on the Prime Minister of our country.
