India Extends Lockdown as Coronavirus Grips Mumbai

HeadlineMay 18, 2020

In India, the nationwide coronavirus lockdown has been extended for another two weeks. Mumbai is feeling the most devastating impacts of the pandemic as the city of 20 million accounts for 20% of India’s COVID-19 cases and nearly 25% of the deaths. Hospitals are overflowing with patients, and social distancing is practically impossible in the city’s vast slum districts. India now has over 96,000 confirmed cases and over 3,000 deaths.
