While a few state governments like Punjab expressed exasperation that people are not taking lockdown seriously, others are worried about spreading it to districts which have been untouched as yet. A few others are taking precautionary measures as India is hell bent on keeping a community wide infection that is known for phase III at bay.

Maharashtra and Punjab also governments announced a curfew today, after lockdowns saw only partial success in keeping crowds away.
