On Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation and asked the citizens to be vigilant and not go out unnecessarily. He called for a Janta Curfew on Sunday, March 22 from 7 am to 9 pm in an attempt to break the contact chain amongst people. The move is also being widely touted as a testing measure for a possible curfew in the future.
PM Modi also urged senior citizens to not step out of their house for the next few weeks. He also announced the formation of a COVID-19 Economic Task Force under the Ministry of Finance.
