PM Narendra Modi on Tuesday announced a complete nationwide lockdown for the next 21 days to prevent the further spread of COVID-19.
This lockdown will be in effect from midnight.
PM Modi: It will have a tremendous economic cost but this is important for protecting human lives in India.
According to a report published by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, the total number of positive coronavirus cases has grown to 519 and a total of 9 deaths.
“If you don’t follow the curfew these 21 days, we will pay the cost for the next 21 years. The country and your family will go behind by 21 years if this 21-day period doesn’t pass. Many families will be destroyed forever if we don’t follow this curfew: PM.
As per health experts, a minimum of 21 days is very crucial for breaking the cycle of coronavirus infection: PM Modi
This is the second time PM Modi addressed the nation in a week. Last week, PM Modi requested the people of India to observe a day-long ‘Janata Curfew’ on March 22. PM Modi’s appeal experienced a great response from the people of India.
