The doubling rate is a parameter to show how fast the infection is spreading.

The government had imposed a nationwide lockdown on March 24 (effective from midnight of March 25) till April 14. The lockdown was further increased till May 3 after consultation with the Chief Ministers of all states.

When the lockdown was imposed, the cases were reported at 550 which increased significantly even after the lockdown.

The government claimed that the cases would have been exceeded over 8 lakh if the lockdown would not have been imposed.
