PM Calls For Resolve And Restraint To Fight Covid-19

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday appealed to citizens to follow “Janta curfew” on March 22 in the view of novel coronavirus outbreak.

“I am seeking one more support from every countrymen today. This is a public curfew. Janta curfew means for the public, curfew imposed by the public on its own. Every citizen must follow Janta curfew on this Sunday, March 22, from 7 am to 9 pm,” Modi said in his address to the nation.

“If possible, please call at least 10 people every day and tell them about the ‘Janta curfew’ as well as the measures to prevent coronavirus,” he said.

The Prime Minister also requested senior citizens to remain indoors for the next few weeks.

“Social distancing is extremely important and effective in reducing the impact of coronavirus. All senior citizens in our family should not get out of houses. I request all people in the country to get out of the house only when it is extremely necessary, try and do all work from home,” he said.

Modi also said that no definite solution has been found and no vaccine has been developed yet to deal with coronavirus.

The Prime Minister said that the world is going through a serious phase and citizens have fought the novel coronavirus epidemic firmly.

“The whole world is going through a very serious phase of crisis at this time. Generally, whenever a natural crisis comes, it is limited to a few countries or states. But this time this crisis is such, which has put the entire human race in crisis all over the world,” Modi said.

“In these two months, 130 crore citizens of India have fought the coronavirus epidemic firmly and took necessary precautions. The belief that we are not prone to the global coronavirus pandemic is not right. Hence, it is important that every Indian should be alert,” he added.

The total number of positive cases of COVID-19 in India stands at 167, including 25 foreigners. Four deaths (one each) have been reported in Delhi, Karnataka, Punjab and Maharashtra,” the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare said in a statement.

In view of coronavirus outbreak, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday appealed to all Indians to take part in thanking healthcare providers by clapping from their homes on March 22 at 5 pm.

“For the last 2 months, millions are working day and night in hospitals and airports and those serving others by not taking care of themselves. On March 22, at 5’o clock, we should stand on our doorways, balconies, in our windows and keep clapping hands and ringing the bells for 5 mins to salute and encourage them,” said Prime Minister Modi in an address to the nation.

“I also request the local administration of the entire country. On 22 March, at 5 o’clock inform people about this with the sound of siren,” he said.
