Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi convened chief ministers of the affected states to discuss how to deal with the epidemic. At the meeting, Vinod Paul, member of India's National Transition Council in charge of health, gave a presentation on epidemic prediction. By the end of the month, the states of Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra and New Delhi will have the fastest increase in cases, Paul said. By the time the epidemic peaks in mid-May, India will have as many as 500,000 new confirmed cases a day.

New Delhi will extend a one-week "lockdown" of the Indian capital until 5:00 am on May 3, Chief Minister P. Kejriwal announced Monday.


The worsening of the epidemic has caused great global concern


India has recorded a record number of new cases since April. India's growing number of confirmed cases passed 100,000 for the first time on April 5, 200,000 on April 15 and 300,000 on April 22, according to official data. The continued deterioration of COVID-19 in India has aroused high global concern.

As the epidemic in India continues to worsen, many countries are concerned about it. One after another, restrictions have been introduced on the entry of Indian tourists:

The Canadian government announced on Monday a 30-day ban on passenger flights from India and Pakistan.

The Singapore government announced on Tuesday that it will ban non-Singaporeans with recent travel history to India, whether they are holding long-term or short-term visas.

The British government announced that India will be placed on the "Red List" from July 23, restricting recent visitors to India from entering the UK.

Iran's civil aviation authority announced Monday that it will suspend all flights between Iran and India and Pakistan from Friday.

Port, logistics spread shutdown news



Official data show that in 2020, China-India trade volume was US $87.59 billion, China's exports to India were US $66.73 billion and imports from India were US $20.86 billion. The epidemic is raging in India, which undoubtedly has a serious impact on the foreign trade and freight forwarders engaged in China-India trade -- there has been news about the shutdown of ports and logistics industry! Kandla Port, the container port closest to New Delhi, has announced that due to the sudden surge of cases of COVID-19, all terminal operators at Kandla Port have unilaterally decided to close terminal operations on the weekend from April 24th until further notice in order to stop the chain of infection! It is the first port to announce a partial closure of terminal operations, and it is likely that other Indian ports will be forced to follow, given the outbreak's near-uncontrolled nature. And domestic, the logistics company has issued a notice to suspend the receipt and transport of goods, freight forwarding enterprises to foreign trade customers strong early warning!
