“The people a lockdown hurts most are the poor, migrant workers & small businesses. The original lockdowns were essentially to buy time to build up hospital/health infrastructure. Lets focus on resurrecting that & on avoiding mortality,” industrialist Anand Mahindra, who heads Mahindra, India’s autos-to-technology conglomerate, said on Twitter on Monday.
