Indias health minister valdan said on March 18 that since March 25, the government of India has extended the nationwide blockade three times to cope with the new crown epidemic, and now it has entered the fourth stage of the blockade. So far, 7.1 cases per 100000 people in India have been infected, which is lower than the global level. Next, valdan said, the Indian government will focus on revitalizing the affected economy.
However, some experts believe that India may have a peak outbreak in the next month or two. Gurelia, director of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi, has said that according to research model data and the growth of confirmed cases, Indias epidemic peak is expected to occur from June to July.
Dr David Nabarro, whos special envoy, said in an interview with Indian media that the Indian epidemic is expected to peak at the end of July, and then the growth curve will flatten. He believes that India may have more confirmed cases after lifting the national blockade, but it will remain stable in general.
