PM Modi Locks Down India for 21 Day Due to Coronavirus Outbreak

The Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced a complete lockdown of the nation for 3 weeks in the fight againt rapidly increasing casses of COVID-19. Novel Coronavirus has hit hard not only India, but the world at large and there are repotedly 332,930 confirmed cases globaly and 13510 deaths (as on 10:00 CET 23 March 2020) as per the data given by World Health Organisation. India so far has recorded 519 confirm cases of COVID-19 as on 24 March, 8PM and strenuous measures are required to reduce the rate of rapidly increasing coronavirus cases in the nation.

Experts have suggessted that social distancing is the only way to stay safe and save others from the risk of getting infected, thus in the wake of event and to bring the situation under control the Prime Minister has announced a complete lockdown of India for 21 days, “If we don’t handle these 21 days well, then our country, your family will go backwards by 21 years,” he said.

The government is taking all necessary measure to curb the outbreak and the central government has allocated Rs 15000 crore for health infrastructure like beds, ventilators, paramedical training etc. But nothing can be achieved unless we as citizens understand out moral reponsibility and act responsibily by avoiding social gathering, meeting friends and going out. This nation-wide lockdown of 3 weeks is a big step towards the fight againt coronavirus, and lets hope that we emerge as winners.

India is hitting a period of exponential growth of COVID-19 Cases

As per a report in The Print- “It took India forty days to reach the first 50 cases, five more days to reach 100 cases, three more days to reach 150 cases and then just two more days to reach 200 cases. The number of confirmed cases in India is now doubling in five days or less, down from six days earlier this month. This puts India in line with trajectories of countries across the world — in the United States, cases are now doubling every two days.”

The Janta Curfew on 22nd March was a small step towards practicing complete social distancing, but it is very important that extreme measures were to be taken to control coronavirus spread and this nation-wide lockdown is step towards ensuring safety and better health of the country.
