Asks every citizen to guide and motivate others in facing the challenge posed by Coronavirus
Shri Naidu urges political parties and all others to fight Coronavirus together

The Vice-President of India and Chairman of Rajya Sabha, Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu today made a fervent appeal to the people of the country to confine themselves to homes tomorrow (on 22nd March, 2020) so as to effectively contain the spread of Coronavirus. He said that since the virus spreads through physical contact, social distancing is an effective measure to contain its spread by avoiding contact during the incubation period of the virus.

Shri Naidu elaborated that the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s call for observing ‘Janata Curfew’ this Sunday in effect means ‘caring for yourself and others’ through social distancing which is being principally advocated by the medical experts and WHO.

Shri Naidu urged the political parties, civil society organizations and all other concerned to rise to the occasion to collectively combat the challenge posed to the nation by Coronavirus. He further said that it is the responsibility of every citizen to educate and motivate others towards meeting the challenge.
