Modi on Tuesday announced that the lockdown across the country will be extended till May 3 to fight the pandemic, saying the measure has produced a significant outcome in containing the infection

The first step was to take special care of the elderly, especially those who have chronic disease. “We have to take extra care of them, and keep them safe from coronavirus,” he said.
