Prime Minister Narendra Modi will talk to the countrymen tomorrow at 9 AM. This will be a video message from Prime Minister Modi. Earlier, the prime minister had addressed the people of the country in the evening of 24 March, announcing a 21-day lockdown across the country.
“At 9 AM tomorrow morning, shared a small video message with my fellow Indians: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said.
There is a lockdown in the entire country to prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID), which threatened to spiral out of control of the authorities in a super-active economy. There were even some mischievous elements like the man who died in Patna or the 37 people who returned from Mecca to Pilibhit via Mumbai and Lucknow or Bollywood actress-singer Kanika Kapoor who either skipped the thermal screening at the airport or manage to escape it employing crooked means.
So far 1,965 cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) have surfaced in India out of which 151 people have recovered.
In the past 24 hours, the number of new COVID patients has increased by 328 and 50 people have died so far.
The meeting of thousands of Muslims affiliated to the Tablighi Jamaat at the Nizamuddin Markaz of Delhi, from where they wantonly spread out to the country, infecting other people, has aggravated the crisis.
Prime minister speaks to chief ministers of states
Amid the ongoing lockdown in the country, Prime Minister Modi is constantly monitoring the current situation in the country through video conferencing. Today, Modi spoke to the chief ministers of the states through video conferencing about the coronavirus threat amid lockdown.
The prime minister told the chief ministers that separate and specialised hospitals were needed for COVID patients.
Home Minister Amit Shah, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and other policymakers attended the meeting via video conferencing along with Prime Minister Modi.
Coronavirus spread can be checked in India
Two months after India reported the first victim of coronavirus, the number of infected people is approaching 2,000. India, which crossed 1,000 coronavirus victims in the last week, shares the plight with 20 countries of the world that the biological agent from China has badly affected.
The situation in India can still be controlled with regard to the number of infected people and the rate of infection. The government is calling it a controlled community transition.
It is expected that the prime minister will make a special mention of certain communal behaviours dangerous for Indian society without naming the religion they follow.
