COVID-19 Update: India with or without Lockdown
by Sumit Arora @eSumit
It is more than 3 weeks since a lockdown was imposed by the Indian government and again extended to 3rd May . We try to understand how India would have fared without a lockdown and has it been able to control the spread of Coronavirus?
Estimate: On 24th March when lockdown was imposed, India had a total 571 cases.
Without social distancing India would have had 36,794 cases by 13th April. Due to lockdown and social distancing, on 13th April India reported a total of 10,455 cases.
If India had ended social distancing on 14th April, we will end up with 1.21 lakhs cases by 3rd May
But with 50% Social distancing, we would end with 0.43 lakhs cases
