    New Delhi (Sputnik): India has been under a national lockdown since 25 March and all public and private vehicles, except for emergency services, are off the roads. While the lockdown norms have been strictly imposed in cities and towns, people in rural areas have taken to traditional modes of transport like bullock/buffalo carts for local travel.

    In a video that has gone viral, some youngsters took a buffalo cart for a joyride and in a bid to make the animal run faster, they kept beating it. While the buffalo obeyed their prodding for a long while, it suddenly steered to its right, throwing the youngsters off the road, as if in a fit of anger.  

    ​The lockdown has been partially lifted since 19 May, but there is still no abatement of the spiralling cases of COVID-19 in the country. As of Monday, the cumulative caseload of COVID-19 was 138,845, including 57,721 cured cases and 4,021 deaths, according to data released by the federal Health Ministry.
