The central government has announced a nationwide lockdown till May 31.

 Lockdown-4 will now be for 14 days which is till 31st May. The rules and regulations will be announced shortly. Lockdown-3 is set to expire today. When Prime Minister Narendra Modi first announced the lockdown on March 24, there were about 300 patients with corona virus in the country.

Today, about 53 days later, the total number of people infected with the corona virus in the country has reached over 90,000. While the number of active cases of corona virus in the country is 53946. 34108 people have been treated and 2872 people have died during the treatment.

Several state governments want complete shutdowns only in containment zones allowing space for the resumption of almost all activities, except large social gatherings and educational institutions, during lockdown 4.0.

The third phase of the lockdown in the country due to the Coronavirus epidemic is coming to an end on May 17, i.e. today. So far, it is clear from the signal received from the central government that Lockdown 4.0 will start, which may last till May 31.

The Home Ministry may issue new guidelines at any time today regarding this Lockdown 4.0. Even Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself has hinted at increasing the lockdown in his national address. But the PM also said that Lockdown 4 would be completely new, with a number of changes to be made.

Officials in several states said the guidelines defining containment zones, a key guidance document for enforcing lockdown 4.0, would come by Saturday and it was likely to divide a district into red, orange and green zones, unlike the existing methodology of categorizing an entire district as red, orange or green.
