From today, 1.3 billion Indians will be placed under self-isolation mode against COVID-19. With the only mission: “Save the lives of Indians and not lose a single Indian to Coronavirus in the next few weeks.”
India will be put under 21-days lockdown, starting today. India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the lockdown as a step to completely break the virulent cycle through enforced Social Distancing. For the next 21 days, India will focus entirely on Healthcare services and quarantine for reported cases and endangered population groups with low immunity, especially those who are below 15 years of age and 60 years or above (senior citizens).
The PM announced additional impetus of USD 1,96,40,32,500 to Healthcare-related infrastructure to fight COVID-19 transmission.
Speaking to the citizens through online media, PM Modi compared the situation in India as uncontrollable in the future, if the 21-days lockdown were to be declared any later.
