New Delhi: “The world is passing through a huge crisis, more countries are affected than World War 1 and 2,” said Prime Minister Narendra Modi as he began his scheduled address on the Novel Coronavirus outbreak in the country. He further urged the 130 crore Indians who are facing the corona scare to ‘be responsible citizens’ and stay inside their homes for the coming weeks. He called for avoiding all non-essential outings. He said,

Every Indian has tried to adopt precautionary measures. But in the past few days, it seems we have evaded the crisis. The thought that we are safe from the pandemic is not correct, we need to be alert. Please stay indoors over the next few weeks unless absolutely necessary.

The Prime minister in his live address, went on to introduce a ‘Janta Curfew’ on this Sunday, March 22, which he explained is a curfew imposed by the people on themselves in order to prevent the community transmission of the disease. As part of the Janta Curfew, PM requested everyone to stay inside their homes from 7 am to 9 pm.

On that day, at 5 pm, we will stand at our balconies, windows or doors for 5 minutes, we will show our gratitude to those maintaining essential services by ringing bells, sounding sirens, clapping or clanging utensils, he said.

PM Modi also urged people to follow social distancing and said that caution must be practiced to ensure that India wins the battle from Coronavirus.

There’s no cure for corona globally, there are no vaccines available. In countries where corona has had a massive impact, it seems the virus exploded after the initial days. ​India is tracking everything that is happening in the world. Some countries have detected and isolated their citizens to curb the spread. The role of their citizens was massive in those countries.
