“From midnight, the whole country will go under a total lockdown to save India and for  every  Indian  family,  there  will  be  a  complete  ban  on  venturing  out  of  your homes. Therefore, I request you to stay wherever you’re in this country.” Modi said.

Modi lockdown in India situation

New Delhi, The capital of India, was under an identical lockdown and lots of other cities, but now this includes the whole 1.3 billion people.

The Home Ministry announced after Mr. Modi’s speech that only essential services will be operational. These include water, electricity, food shops, health services, and fire  services.  While  all  shops,  commercial  establishments,  factories,  workshops, offices, markets and places of worship are going to be closed and metros are going to be suspended.

On the other hand, the ministry warned that anyone who refused to follow the orders will face up to a year in jail.

Also, Mr. Modi says that all steps have been taken to ensure the supply of essential items. At the same time, he didn’t explain clearly how people will get food, water, and other necessities during this ban.

Coronavirus challenge

According to the World Health Organization, Density is the main challenge in the global battle against the Coronavirus. A country like India considered the second- most populous country in the world after China. Because of that, Experts fear and wonder what would happen if the Coronavirus spreads in a city like Mumbai, home to twenty million people, where space is at a premium and many families of six or even eight live inside one room. The consequences would cause a disaster far bigger than anywhere else.

Coronavirus cases

A report from the Ministry of Health mentioned that the country has confirmed 519 Coronavirus cases, including 10 deaths and 39 patients who have been cured

Some bright sides

  • The  first  positive  factor  of  India  is  that  the  population  majority  is  considerably younger than other countries with the same situation, and younger people have a much better chance of coping with the virus. The second factor is that India has warmer weather and this type of weather isn’t the best environment for the Virus to spread. Strong precautions and firm action will also help countries deal with their population’s concerns.
  • Mr. Modi sees that lockdown is the only option that can help the country stop the spread of Coronavirus and save the resident’s lives.Read more World News on WeeklyReviewer!
