India, hit by the second wave of the pandemic, was seeing a massive rise in daily cases since mid-March. However, there has been a considerable decline in cases after most of the states and union territories (UTs) across the country imposed strict curbs, including lockdowns and night curfews, to break the chain of the virus.
Though the country is witnessing a dip in cases, states and UTs have extended the curbs till May-end, fearing that any 'laxity' would once again lead to a surge in cases.
On Sunday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, while extending the lockdown till May 31, said that the restrictions will be lifted in a "phased manner" after June 1 if cases continue to decline. Similarly, Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope has also hinted at lifting the restrictions after June 1 in a "restricted manner".
