The respected Times of India journalist reveals the truths and consequences of the country’s unprecedented COVID-19 lockdown.
On March 24, 2020, with approximately five hundred reported COVID-19 cases reported and only hours notice, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi ordered the most stringent national lockdown the world has ever seen. Two months later, Modi announced the fourth phase of national lockdown with some relaxations. 
Now in phase five of lockdown—and as restrictions are loosened even more—all everyone knows for sure is what is unknown: What happens to the virus as India reopens? What happens to the Indian economy? And what happens to Modi? 
Lockdown brings you inside an event that will affect the world around us perhaps for decades to come.
