While the nation is looking towards lockdown 3.0 Punjab has again made the first move. The state on Wednesday extended the lockdown and Curfew by another 2 weeks. This would take the lockdown beyond the national lockdown that is to end on 3rd May.
Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh said that curfew will be relaxed between 7 am and 11 am. This would facilitate industries to start their work. Punjab, however, is not the first state to extend the lockdown. Telangana earlier extended the same till 7th May.
So, far around 342 cases and 19 deaths due to the COVID-19. 101 people have been recovered in the state. 71 have been discharged from hospitals after recovery.
