Key points said by PM Narendra Modi:
- Lockdown of 21 days is a long time, but this is important for you and your family’s safety. I believe that every Indian will not only successfully tackle this challenge but also emerge victorious in this time of crisis
- If we are not able to manage the upcoming 21 days, we will be pushed back 21 years
- Only way to battle from coronavirus is social distancing
- Maintain precautions and stay at home also. You have to remember that a coronavirus infected person initially appears to be normal and doesn’t show symptoms.
