PM Narendra Modi to address the nation tomorrow

Amid requests from states to extend the nationwide lockdown, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the nation at 10 am tomorrow, the last day of the 21-day lockdown. At least six states–Maharashtra, Odisha, Punjab, West Bengal, Karnataka and Telangana — have already announced an extension. The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in India crossed the 9,000-mark on Monday, while the death toll is 308. As the country gears up to extend the lockdown after the 21-day period end tomorrow, the spread of COVID-19 cases to almost half the total districts in the country is likely to weigh on the mind of the Central government in crafting a graded approach.
