Coronavirus crisis: Here’s what citizens say on easing lockdown

Updated : April 28, 2020 09:34 PM IST

Around 47 percent of people want the lockdown to end even in districts where COVID-19 cases have been detected after April 15, but with restrictions on hotspots, according to a survey by Local Circles. Also, 79 percent respondents favour unlocking all districts which haven't reported any COVID-19 case after April 15.

Local Circles has conducted a survey among citizens to check their views on the process of easing the lockdown. The survey received more than 24,000 votes from 254 districts across India.

As far as opening of intercity public transportation systems are concerned, 63 percent people are in favour of keeping them shut in districts where the lockdown is extended post May 3.

Local Circles will submit the findings of this study to central and state governments soon.
