The Coronavirus afflictions in India are rising much faster than before. That has raised apprehensions that key state governments may revoke Unlock 1.0 and instead extend the lockdown for some more time till normalcy returns. Tamil Nadu has already taken the lead and declared complete lockdown in Chennai and 3 the neighbouring districts of Chengalpet, Kancheepuram and Tiruvallur till 30 June. In India, states like Maharashtra, Gujarat, Delhi and Tamil Nadu have been the worst impacted by COVID-19 and incidentally they are also the most industrialized states. Therefore, any extension of lockdown in these states would mean further pressure on economic growth, and we could only get a clear picture by the end of this week. If the daily count of over 11,000 afflictions continue, we could see an extended lockdown.
