Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation about the Coronavirus outbreak, which has been increasing rapidly in the country. In his address, PM Modi declared a 21 days lockdown all across the country in order to contain the increasing rate of the disease. PM Modi urged everyone to forget what stepping out of the home feels like or warned them for the consequences. He had said:
“If we are not able to manage the upcoming 21 days (of nationwide complete lockdown), we will be pushed back 21 years,”
“Today India is at the stage where our actions today, will decide that to what extent we can bring down the impact of this disaster. This is the time to strengthen our resolve again and again,”
Soon after PM Modi’s announcement, social media was flooded with reactions. Many prominent people took to their social media and urged their fans to adhere to what PM Modi said. The gravity of the situation is such that even overseas players are taking to their social media and are urging everyone to adhere to preventive measures.
Former South African cricketer, Kevin Pietersen took to his social media and shared a note. In the note, KP urged everyone to take the pandemic seriously and not be casual about it. He said it is absolutely important that everyone follows the words of PM Modi and stay home for 21 days. He also wrote about how this problem will be reduced only if we come together. The twist is that this note is written using Hindi language.

This is a crucial time for us, together we have to fight this battle. At this point of time, the least we can do is stay at home and help all those working in essential services. It is truly important that everyone sticks to their home and stay safe to curb the Coronavirus. It is really important for each and every citizens to follow all the preventive measures provided by the government and health advisories or the tables will turn, just the way they have in Italy. So stay safe, stay indoors!
