WHY APRIL 17-26?

Before we talk about these discoveries in detail, it’s essential to comprehend why we chose the time of April 17-26.

On April 16, India finished 23 days under the across the country lockdown. By at that point, state governments had forced exacting limitations on the development of individuals; the open vehicle was suspended; workplaces were closed; telecommute was forcefully advanced, and testing for Covid-19 was expanded. This period additionally observed many transient specialists in urban focuses walk by walking to their homes in the remote.

The way that these 42 regions announced their first case on or after April 17 shows that the lockdown didn’t totally prevail with regards to forestalling the novel coronavirus from spreading to new regions. This was one of its essential targets.
