The Apex court representative made it clear that a lockdown can not be the actual controlling factor and can impact the overall economy of the state and the country.
The Other Approach
Though the lockdown will not be imposed in the cities however the corona spread is quite concerning and needs to be controlled. The everyday increase in the number of patients ranging to thousands and the highly declining rate of the ventilator and hospital beds have made the situation worst.

The Uttar Pradesh government has already restricted the gathering of 5 or more people at a religious place and also had weekend lockdowns.
