Why lockdown until 3 May instead of 30 April?
Several states had extended the lockdown by April 30. The Prime Minister has extended the total lockdown across the country to May 3 instead of April 30. It is believed that he did this because May 1 is the public holiday of Labor Day. Maharashtra, where the highest number of corona cases have been reported, falls on Maharashtra Day on 1 May. It is Saturday on May 2 and Sunday on May 3. If the lockdown opened on weekends, people would go out in large numbers. Hence the lockdown has been kept till May 3 instead of April 30.
