It is a common picture of the present time that the huge strata of the world’s population are facing confinement that has been implemented by their respective governmental bodies in order to break the chain of the virus spread from the infected ones to the others. Also, this approach has been proven successful in restricting and decimating the overall harm caused by the pandemic to the general public. However, according to the studies conducted by some experts, the implementation of the national lockdown has had a significant impact on the economies of several developed and developing nations.

Yet it should not be forgotten that the extended lockdown in India tends to be a pivotal approach followed by the central government to minimize the total number of infected cases in the country, and to break the contagious spread of the COVID-19. A recent report shared by the national health ministry has revealed the COVID-19 cases have crossed the total figure of 10,000 along with the fatalities in hundreds in contrast to the thousands seen in the other nations such as Italy, United States, Spain and so forth.

Coronavirus hotspots in India

The government of India in collaboration with the health department has identified 170 districts where the volume of COVID-19 cases is higher and is termed as the Coronavirus hotspots. Also, according to the report, there are 207 districts that have been titled as the non-hotspots, whereas all others are recognized as the green zone.

New Delhi is one of the areas having a huge number of Coronavirus cases. A total of over 900 confirmed cases has been reported in the capital city of India so far. Consequently, the government of Delhi has identified and sealed 30 hotspots across the national capital.

Of all the declared red zones in India, six major metro cities are also on the list including New Delhi and Mumbai.  Red zone indicates the area where the infection is higher, the orange zone depicts lesser infection, while the green zone is an area that possesses few or no infection.

To date, the total number of 170 districts has been listed as the red zone in the country. Despite the metro cities Delhi and Mumbai, the cities including Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, and Kolkata have also been listed as the red zone.

The honorable Prime Minister, Narendra Modi on 14th April 2020 after a meeting with the higher ministerial authorities, has confessed that the extension of the ongoing national lockdown is vital because of the rise in the COVID-19 cases across the nation. However, while keeping in mind the situation of the low-income earners, a few more essential services will be commenced after the 20th April 2020 while maintaining the preparatory supplies and the social distancing in the permitted offices.

Services such as commercial services, financial services, restricted movement of people, agricultural activities, essential goods manufacturing units, cargo services and some additional services such as construction work in the rural areas pertaining to the water supply, electricity and sanitation will now be resumed after 20th April 2020.
