India is in the 77th day of the lockdown with the economy slowly limping back to normalcy. Concerns are being raised due to an increase in the number of coronavirus infected people across the country, which stands at more than 2,65,000 with 7,466 deaths. Some are even accusing the governments of not listening to expert advice and allowing the resumption of economic activities without making a complete assessment. Questions are also being raised about the rationality and efficacy of the decision to impose complete lockdown from 25 March, when India had reported only 500-odd coronavirus cases and opening the economy when the number of corona infected people started rising , the government has decided to allow opening up of the economy in all respects with fewer restrictions. Apparently the argument seems logical until we compare the Indian scenario with what is happening in other major countries around the world.
