Hello and welcome to The Moving Curve. I’m Rukmini, a data journalist based in Chennai. Every night on this mini-cast, I consider one question around the novel coronavirus epidemic in India. Tonight I’m asking this question — what’s going to govern how we ease restrictions?

Thank you for listening. This episode was edited by Anand Krishnamoorthi. Tomorrow — a new question.
