There was not really much of a choice for the government. With more than 5000 Coronavirus cases in India in 24 hours on 16th May 2020, the government had to extend the lockdown by another 2 weeks till 31 May. It could still be extended further if the situation warranted. The existing restrictions for red zones will continue till that date and all rail and flight services will remain suspended till that date with only selected Shramik trains running. Air India has already clarified that it will not issue tickets till the time the lockdown is actually lifted by the government. The states of Maharashtra, Delhi and Tamil Nadu have been the worst affected by the pandemic. The loss to the economy is likely to escalate for this very reason. That is the way most nations are tackling the pandemic and there is really no choice right now.
