India has also been put under 21-day lockdown after Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday requested citizens to maintain social distancing and seriously follow lockdown. The Prime Minister said it is very important for every citizen to obey the lockdown because if we fail to do so and virus spreads further then India will be in big trouble whose impact would be devastating for all. PM Modi also addressed the nation on Wednesday evening and once again appealed everyone to follow the lockdown. Modi shared a WhatsApp number for people who are looking for information regarding coronavirus, asking citizens to remain vigilant and not to fall for any information without cross-checking it.
