The Lancet India Taskforce has also advised the State to extend the lockdown for at least one or two weeks with stricter restrictions in order to check the alarming spread of the virus in the State. The Chairman of the Technical Advisory Committee stated that reports and regular inputs are being submitted to the government and the subject of the lockdown extension is under discussion. However, the situation would be reviewed again by May 20, 2021 and a report would be submitted.

Deputy Chief Minister CN Ashwath Narayan clarified that the government will take a final decision on the extension of the lockdown at an appropriate time. 

The State has reported 35,297 new cases on Thursday with 344 fatalities, taking the total number of infections to 20,88,488 and deaths to 20,712. A recovery of 34,057 patients was recorded as well. The positivity rate for the day was 27.64% and case fatality rate (CFR) was at 0.97%.
