Following Prime Minster Narendra Modi’s announcement Tuesday, all of India is under complete lockdown for the next 21 days to prevent the spread of Covid-19. “In the view of the current situation, the nationwide complete lockdown will be in place for 21 days,” Modi said in his second address to the nation in a week.
