The streets looked deserted and a small number of vehicles were on the roads on Sunday in an unprecedented shutdown due to Prime Minister Modi’s call for a ‘Janta Curfew’ to help control the spread of the coronavirus.
When the 14-hour ‘Janta Curfew’ started at 7 a.m., people stayed indoors as part of the social distancing exercise to help stop the spread of the virus.
All markets and establishments, except those dealing with essential goods and services, are closed for the day. The ‘Janta curfew’ will end at 9 p.m.
Before the curfew began, Prime Minister Modi said: “In a few minutes, #JantaCurfew begins. Let us all be part of this curfew, which will add tremendous force to the fight against the COVID-19 threat” .
He said the steps to take now will help in the times to come.
