Bhubaneswar/ New Delhi:
A 14-day lockdown has been announced in Odisha between May 5-May 19 to break the chain of transmission as the state sees a spike in Covid cases like the rest of the country, hit by a devastating second wave.
Yesterday, the Arvind Kejriwal government in Delhi extended the lockdown for a third straight week as the national capital continues to see a rise in Covid caseload. The struggle of patients in finding a hospital bed or basic resources such as medical oxygen made global headlines.
On Saturday, India reported over 4 lakh cases in 24 hours in a new grim global record. This morning, the caseload surged to 1.95 crore with 3.92 lakh fresh cases.
