Coronavirus India LIVE updates: Lockdown Will Stay In Red Zones, Push Do Gaz Doori, Says PM

New Delhi: Our economy is good, no need to worry, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said today as he indicated at a video meeting with Chief Ministers that the coronavirus lockdown would continue beyond May 3 in the parts of the country worst affected by the infection. "There is no need to worry on the economy front, our economy is good," PM Modi reportedly told nine Chief Ministers, emphasizing that the lockdown had saved thousands of lives in the past one and a half months. The PM asked states to draw up a plan to exit the lockdown by marking districts as red, orange and green to indicate the level and intensity of the COVID-19 infection. Most of the Chief Ministers said the lockdown should end, but they had expressed concern about the shuttered economy.
