The third phase of the phase-wise upliftment of the coronavirus-induced lockdown or 'Unlock 3.0' will begin in India from today. In Unlock 3.0, the Centre has provided more relaxations by allowing yoga institutes and gyms to open across the country. The government, however, has not allowed schools, colleges, metro rail service, cinema halls along with bars to reopen.

Unlock 3.0 comes at a time when the number of cases of coronavirus is increasing at an alarming rate. So far, the deadly pathogen has affected over 16 lakh and claimed the lives of more than 35,000 in India. The government, however, has asserted that India is in a much better position than other countries because of its low mortality rate.
