Prof K Nageshwar: Will lockdown be lifted after 21 days?
Professor K Nageshwar has said it is difficult to say as to whether the Central government will lift the lockdown after 21 days. Scientists and doctors are unable to predict the behaviour of the coronavirus, he stated. Nageshwar mentioned lifting of lockdown will depend on how effectively the people are following the instructions issued by the Central and State governments. He further said the coronavirus incubation period is 14 days according to WHO and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Covid-19 virus will not die with the implementation of lockdown, he added.
