India recorded 40,953 new coronavirus cases in the last 24 hours, the highest single-day rise reported in 111 days, total cases reach 1, 15,55,284 as of now. 

The worst impact again comes on Maharashtra, and they have issued the guidelines to follow as the state reported 25,833 covid cases; the highest recorded cases were on 11 September 2019. Punjab also issued some rules to follow like night curfew in 11 districts, shut down educational institute, put section 144 that means a gathering of 4 or more is not allowed. Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, Indore also imposed the night curfew lockdown. 

India wants to re-instate its position as Pharmacy of the world by meeting the demand of covid -19 vaccines to many countries. People already have mixed feelings about India's ongoing vaccination drive, shining as one of the largest in the world.  

Are we ready for lockdown 2021? If government imposes another lockdown this year then what impact it will have on farmers and agriculture sector.  It is important to mention that lockdown 2020 had badly affected farmers and labourers.

During last year's lockdown, many crops got damage because exports were not allowed.  Hence to avoid such situation everyone including farmers must follow government guidelines, use masks, sanitizer, and social distancing rules.  If possible, farmers should also prioritize the covid vaccine as they feed the whole world.
