The collective strength that the country has showed is a tribute to Dr. Baba Saheb Ambedkar on his birth anniversary.
We took action before even a single case occurred in India. Primitive steps kept India safe because strict measures is need of the hour:
1. Special financial package for poor.
2. Allowing agricultural activity was imperative as this is a harvest seasons and 50 per cent of food grains come from the Rabi seasons.
3. Calls of opening up selected economic activities have been doing the rounds.
4. Some areas that have shown promise in containment may be given relaxations.
Emphasizing the importance of the next one week in the fight against Coronavirus, he appealed to all the countrymen to stop the spread of the Covid-19 disease to newer areas. An assessment will be done for the next one week of all the towns, districts and states based on which the relaxations can be given. Most of the Chief Ministers favored the extension of the lockdown. On their own, a number of states have already announced the extension. States like Maharashtra, Odisha, Delhi, Telangana, Punjab and Tamil Nadu have announced the extension till April.
Modi 7-point appeal to India:
1. Take extra care of elderly and shield elders from Coronavirus.
2. Maintain Social Distancing.
3. Take step to boost immunity.
4. Download ‘Aarogya Setu’ Mobile App.
