The approximately 1.3 billion inhabitants of India will have to stay inside for at least two more weeks after May 4 because of the corona crisis. However, the measures are being relaxed here and there.
The Indian Interior Ministry announced on Friday that the lockdown would be extended by two weeks.
Travelling between the states will, therefore, remain prohibited for the time being.
Restrictions are eased in areas where no new infections are reported. This is mainly intended to get the economy going again.
The country was locked on March 25 when just over 600 infections had been diagnosed, and 10 patients had succumbed.
There are now officially 35,000 infections with more than 1,000 deaths.
