Guleria said that earlier it was analysed that the peak will be in May but due to extended lockdown the peak has also been extended. “It is a dynamic process that depends upon various factors. It is a long lasting battle. Cases will come even after the peak is passed. People”s lifestyle in terms of travelling and socialising will change” he said.

The AIIMS Director also said that only with time the quantum of effect of the lockdown in the country will be known.
