The meeting is discussing various issues related to corona virus in the country. Notably, the third phase of lockdown in the country is till May 17. In this meeting, Prime Minister Modi said that if the distance is reduced by 2 meters, the risk may increase.

In a video conferencing meeting organized by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Chief Ministers of all the states of the country spoke about the status of the Corona virus in their states. In which Vijay Rupani of Gujarat also informed the Prime Minister about the situation in Gujarat.
Sources said that during the meeting, the West Bengal Chief Minister had protested against the central government’s decision to start trains. The government has decided to start 15 trains from New Delhi on different routes from May 12.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has already sought relief in the lockdown. Kejriwal says the lockdown has worsened the economic situation. In such a situation, it is necessary to open Delhi. He says that even if the lockdown opens up Corona’s cases, Delhi is ready to deal with it. At the same time, Kejriwal has made it clear that now we have to live with Corona.
The lockdown has been extended twice across the country due to increased coronavirus infection. The number of corona positive patients in India is still increasing. In this situation, the concern before the common people of the country is whether the lockdown will continue even after May 17.
Union Health Minister Dr Harshvardhan said the decision would be taken after considering several factors on whether the lockdown would proceed due to the corona virus. He said the Prime Minister was talking to the chief ministers of all the states on the issue of lockdown and coronavirus cases. They are often doing video conferencing. When the Chief Ministers’ analysis of the states reaches the Prime Minister, he will take a decision after consulting experts.
The Ministry of Health as well as two government agencies AIIMS and ICMR have indicated that the situation of corona infection in the country could become catastrophic if the lockdown ends after May 17. These organizations say that now the relaxation in the lockdown will be like suicide.
The director of AIIMS has even said that most corona cases are yet to come out in India. He said the biggest crisis would come in June-July. The lockdown will be decided only after consulting an expert. The health minister also said that PM Modi would take a decision in the interest of 135 crore people of the country. The final decision on whether the lockdown will increase will only come on May 15-16.
A big sign that the lockdown will not be completed is the return of migrant workers. According to an estimate, only 2.5 lakh laborers have reached their homes in the country. While 14 million people in the country work as migrant laborers.
