Staying at home and maintaining social distancing are probably the best precautions one can follow during these difficult times as a vaccine to fight coronavirus pandemic is yet to be developed. Many countries, including India have imposed strict lockdown measures banning public gatherings, shutting down educational institutes among other things. Over 80 cities in India are under lockdown since March 22 and authorities have urged people to stay indoors.
Now, people on social media are flocking in large numbers to urge others to stay at home and save lives. On March 24, hashtag #StayAtHomeSaveLives started trending on the micro-blogging platform, Twitter, where hundreds of people started sharing posts related to coronavirus outbreak. Netizens were sharing posts of all sorts, from the importance of staying at home in these times to video of police spreading awareness.
