The Allahabad High Court had earlier ordered lockdown in 5 cities of Uttar Pradesh (UP) to control Corona, but then the Yogi government had reached the Supreme Court, arguing that it would not save the livelihood. But now the government has the support of lockdown.
On Saturday in UP, Chief Minister (CM) Yogi Adityanath extended the lockdown till May 24. This has been done for the 5th time. According to government data, the number of new Corona patients decreased sharply due to the lockdown. In the last 25 days, there has been a decrease of about 46 thousand in the active case. Earlier there were 2,23,544 active cases in the state till April 20, while the number reached 1,77,346 by May 15 after the lockdown.
Cases reduced, but death toll increased
When the government decided to impose a complete lockdown from the weekend lockdown, there were 2,422 deaths over the next 10 days (20 to 30 April). There were 3,087 deaths in the next 10 days (1 to 10 May) after the full lockdown was imposed. Apart from this, the truth of the death from Corona is witness to the dead bodies flowing in the districts of Ganga (1140 km) in UP. There is no record of people who are dying in villages.
