modiNEW DELHI : In an address to the nation, Mr Modi extended the nationwide lockdown till May 3 but also announced that some relaxations could be allowed in places where there are no coronavirus hotspots. The 21-day lockdown, which began from March 25, was scheduled to end today.
The number of coronavirus cases in India has climbed to 16,116, which includes 519 deaths, the Health Ministry said today, adding that 1,324 cases and 31 deaths were reported in the last 24 hours.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said the COVID-19 pandemic affects everyone equally. “COVID-19 does not see race, religion, colour, caste, creed, language or border before striking. Our response and conduct thereafter should attach primacy to unity and brotherhood. We are in this together,” PM Modi said in a post on LinkedIn.
“Unlike previous moments in history, when countries or societies faced off against each other, today we are together facing a common challenge. The future will be about togetherness and resilience,” Modi said.
“Logistics was previously only seen through the prism of physical infrastructure – roads, warehouses, ports. But logistical experts these days can control global supply chains through the comfort of their own homes,” he said.
I am well aware of the problems you have faced -some for food, some for movement from place to place, and others for staying away from homes and families. However, for the sake of your country, you are fulfilling your duties like a disciplined soldier. This is the power of ‘We, the People of India’ that our constitution talks about.

The Prime Minister’s post comes on a day when a police case has been filed against a hospital in Uttar Pradesh after it placed an ad in local papers that it would admit Muslim patients only after COVID-19 screening.
An event hosted by the Muslim sect Tablighi Jamaat in Delhi’s Nizamuddin had become a hotspot after thousands of its members were found infected with COVID-19. On Saturday, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh chaired a meeting of a Group of Ministers (GoM) at his residence to and discussed re-starting economic activity in non-containment zones after April 20, in line with announcements made by PM Modi earlier this week.
