The lockdown in India has been extended for two more weeks, until May 31. Since India’s positive COVID-19 cases are still on the rise, the government has made a decision to have different guidelines for different zones in the country.
This announcement has resulted in a series of desi Tweets about the lockdown that we totally agree with.
So this time NDMA issues the order extending lockdown. Last time, it was MHA and earlier PM himself. May be next time, Ministry of Earth Sciences? #LockdownExtended— Mahesh Langa (@LangaMahesh) May 17, 2020

The lockdown is to make sure we stay safe and flatten the curve. So even though it might seem inconvenient, it is essential.
