Hi. As of yesterday we are done with Lockdown 4.0 and by now surely lost track of how long it’s been that we’ve been locked down and what privileges still exist in the new normal. In today’s newsletter, we take a look at that.
Tomorrow btw is going to be a holiday for this newsletter. Personal reasons. Well I think I should say what it is - my wife and I have been away since the lockdown and tomorrow that changes. I am going to pick her up from Kerala Karnataka border and bring her home to resume life as normal. New rules on inter-state travel are getting lenient. Previously you had to get an e-pass with approval online to travel inter-state which could take days. Now you just need an acknowledgement. But there’s still going to be home quarantine for the traveller.
Basically, no newsletter tomorrow.
Today’s topics: Daily tracker - Unlock 1 / Lockdown 5.0 - Recovery rate improves in India - Politics of COVID-19 - India China rivalry - Medical updates - Other recommendations.
