21 days lockdown India PM Modi said. Complete lockdown in India for 21 days, From 12 pm tonight there will be complete lockdown in the entire country. This lockdown is in a way curfew and would be more stringent than Janata Curfew.
“You all deserve to be admired for the success of Janata Curfew on March 22. Experts are saying that ‘social distancing’ is the only way to tackle coronavirus. Social distancing not only for infected but for every citizen including the prime minister. Coronavirus has made many powerful countries helpless; challenges are increasing despite all efforts. If we will be negligent towards observing social distance India will have to pay a heavy price,” the PM said.
The novel coronavirus, or COVID-19, the pandemic has spread across at least 190 countries. The outbreak is having a major impact on the global economy and the stock market.
There have been at least 519 reported cases of a novel coronavirus in India. While 37 have recovered so far in India, 10 have died. As many as 560 districts in India are now under complete lockdown.
Many countries across the world, including France, Italy, Germany, Iran, etc. have not been able to curtail the spread of the disease despite having state-of-the-art health infrastructure.
It took 66 days for the number of infected cases to rise to 1 lakh. But, it took only 11 days for the next one lakh cases to emerge. And, it took just four days for the third 1 lakh cases to appear. This indicates the speed at which coronavirus is spreading.
As per WHO, if one person is infected with coronavirus, it can infect hundreds of others. Coronavirus is spreading like wildfire.
I appeal to people to not venture out on roads at all.
You must remember that initially, people who have been infected will not show symptoms in the first few days. Please maintain social distancing.
These 21 days are crucial. If we are not able to curtail this in 21 days, then the country will go back 21 days. Hence, forget moving out of your house for 21 days. The only thing that people have to do no onwards, is to stay at home.
I appeal to the people of India to stay where they are. Considering these circumstances, there will be a lockdown for 21 days.
