It’s been over three weeks since Prime Minister Narendra Modi had imposed a 21 day lockdown in India. The lockdown was imposed in order to curtail the widespread outbreak of coronavirus in the country which has infected 9200 along with claiming over three hundred lives. And while the 21 day lockdown is coming to an end tomorrow, PM Modi is all set to address the nation once again tomorrow at 10 am over the coronavirus lockdown and is likely to extend it further as a precautionary measure.

According to media reports, the lockdown extension will be a key aspect of PM Modi’s speech tomorrow. To note, PM Modi has been holding a meeting with the state Chief Ministers for some days as they have been mulling over the idea of extending the ongoing lockdown across the country as it is the only effective way to curtail the effect of COVID 19. However, PM Modi is expected to announce the measures to restart the economy. The announcement was made by PMO on micro-blogging site Twitter, which tweeted, “Prime Minister @narendramodi will address the nation at 10 AM on 14th April 2020.”

Take a look at PMO’s tweet on PM Modi’s address to the nation:

Earlier, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had announced the extension of lockdown till April 30 as the state has recorded the highest number of positive coronavirus cases. On the other hand, Punjab Chief Minister, Captain Amrinder Singh had imposed a statewide curfew in the state till the end of this month to battle the highly transmissible virus.
