India ready for 14-hour Janata Curfew to stop spread of coronavirus COVID-19

In line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's call for Janata Curfew from 7 am to 9 pm on March 22 (Sunday) to contain the spread of coronavirus, the nation on Saturday readied itself for the 14-hour unprecedented shutdown. People have been urged to voluntarily stay indoors to check the spread of coronavirus while public transport will be suspended or curtailed and all markets and shops except those dealing in essential items will be closed on the day.

PM Modi had on Thursday called for the 'Janata curfew' from on March 22, saying no citizen, barring those in essential services, should get out of their houses, and asserted that it will be a litmus test to show India's readiness to take on the coronavirus challenge.

Cutting across party lines, chief ministers and others leaders urged the people to follow the self-imposed curfew from 7 am to 9 pm, noting that "social distancing" was key to breaking the chain of infection, as the number of coronavirus cases rose to 283 after 60 new cases were detected on Saturday, the highest so far in a day, and states like Maharashtra, Odisha and Bihar imposed partial lockdown till March-end.
