Amid Starvation Fears ‘World’s Biggest Lockdown’ Enters Critical Phase Says Gospel for Asia

WILLS POINT, TX — The world’s biggest coronavirus lockdown has been extended — leaving more than a billion people in India on the edge of survival amid fears of mass starvation, mission agency Gospel for Asia (GFA World, and its affiliates like Gospel for Asia Canada) reported today.

COVID-19: INDIA ‘IN HANDS OF GOD:’ The world’s biggest coronavirus lockdown has been extended — leaving more than a billion people in India on the edge of survival amid fears of mass starvation, Gospel for Asia (GFA World) reports today, as the mission agency distributes food packages.

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi extended the strict nationwide lockdown until May 3, essentially placing India’s 1.3 billion people — one out of every six people in the world — under stay-at-home orders. The latest order means the entire nation — soon to overtake China as the world’s most populous — faces a six-week shutdown in total.

In a televised address to the nation, Modi said the next few days would be decisive, as India braces itself for a spike in COVID-19 cases. So far, the nation has officially reported nearly 13,000 confirmed cases and more than 400 deaths, but numbers could be much higher, and the country is now entering a critical phase.

Gospel for Asia (GFA World) staff are actively praying for the honorable prime minister and his commendable efforts to protect the Indian people from this virus,” said Gospel for Asia (GFA World) founder Dr. K.P. Yohannan.

The lockdown, which began March 24, bans all non-essential activities and has brought the economies of several southeast Asia nations to a grinding halt, instantly plunging hundreds of millions of families into fear and chaos.

At the grassroots level, millions of furloughed day laborers and agricultural workers — the backbone of the workforce — face the grim threat of starvation.
