The government has put forth its plan to end the lockdown. Accordingly, the sector that supports the economy will be given more leeway. With this, traders are hopeful that economic activity will soon see a rise and that activities in infection-free and controlled areas will reach pre-epidemic levels. Though concerns are rising with the increasing cases of infection, expectations also remain from the recovery rate.
