Five new coronavirus positive cases have been reported in Madhya Pradesh. Of the five new COVID-19 cases, four are residents of Indore and one is from Ujjain, informed Health Officer Dr. Praveen Jadia. With five new cases, there are now 14 COVID-19 infected patients in the state. Total number of coronavirus positive cases in India have surged to 562 including 40 cured/discharged and 9 deaths, the Health Ministry informed on Wednesday. Earlier, six positive coronavirus cases were reported from Jabalpur and one each from Bhopal, Gwalior and Shivpuri. Curfew has also been imposed in Ujjain city of Madhya Pradesh in view of the coronavirus crisis.

Meanwhile, in order to contain the virus from spreading and avoiding a crisis situation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his second address to the nation on coronavirus on Tuesday night announced a pan-India 21 days lockdown. Modi said it was essential for everyone to remain indoors so that the virus can be stopped from spreading further, if not done that the country will be pushed into a very big crisis whose impact would be devastated. Modi said if people did not obey lockdown seriously for 21 days then it will push the country for 21 years, a situation that will take a long time to recover.

Consequences if you don't obey lockdown rules

Falsifying an emergency to get relief or raising false alarms can get you in trouble during the 21-day nationwide lockdown announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to combat the coronavirus pandemic. 

As per government orders, making a false claim to get any relief during lockdown may result in imprisonment for up to two years. Furthermore, not abiding by the government directive or making false alarm may result in imprisonment for up to one year.
