Almost half of the world population is now under lockdown to contain the virus from further spreading as according to experts it is the most effective way to stop the virus from spreading. India has announced a 21-day lockdown after PM Modi during his address to the nation asked citizens to remain indoors and not to venture out of their homes except refiling bare essential requirements like food, water etc. The Prime Minister also shared a WhatsApp number asking citizens who want information on coronavirus can send a 'Namaste' following which they will start receiving updates.
