With Coronavirus lockdown in place and people confined inside their homes, cities and towns around the globe are wearing a completely deserted look. Many videos featuring empty streets and lanes in India have been doing the rounds on social media since the nationwide restrictions began. One such video was shared by the Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, who posted a mesmerising clip of Amritsar city, supposedly made by the district administration, with a message for citizens asking them to abide by rules and regulations of lockdown to help Corona warriors win the battle against the deadly disease.
The video featured all the iconic landmarks of the city which once used to be bustling with tourists but are now empty. The video shows the famous Golden Temple, Harmandir Sahib, and Town Hall Building with a voiceover in the background talking about the frontline workers who are risking their lives for others and recounts ways the Coronavirus outbreak has changed the city. The motivational video also urges people to fight the disease together with hope and solidarity. The video went viral in no time and has since garnered more than 13,000 views with over 1,200 likes. Netizens took to the comments section to appreciate the commending the efforts made by the government.
