PM Modi To Address The Nation Today At 8pm
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the nation today at 8 pm on the coronavirus outbreak. He will discuss key aspects of the Covid-19 disease and ways to contain the virus.
This is the second time in a week when he will address the nation since Thursday when he called for a “Janata Curfew” on Sunday.
PM Modi took to his twitter handle announcing about the same and wrote, “Will address the nation at 8 PM today, 24th March 2020, on vital aspects relating to the menace of Covid-19,”
He will have a video conferencing from Varanasi as per the source's report. Over the past few days, Modi has been regularly urging citizens to follow lockdown instructions seriously and prepare themselves but not panic.
“Even World War I and II did not affect as many countries as coronavirus has done,” Modi said. He also appealed state governments to take precautionary measures and follow some restriction policies to prevent the spread of the virus in the states.
He asked industrial leaders to continue following the work-from-home order as much as possible. Coronavirus has affected over 500 people in India with a total of 9 deaths in the country.
