UP CM Yogi Adityanath has urged his people to follow Coronavirus guidelines seriously as lockdowns in 16 districts see the light of day
Bengaluru: After the success of Janata curfew in which millions of Indians took part to isolate themselves to stop the break of transmission, there is a feeling that we have won the battle against it. But in simple terms, it if far from it.
Our fight against it should continue continuously. Keeping this in mind, UP CM has urged his people to follow the guidelines and isolate oneself completely.
Isolation and social-distancing are the best ways to keep the society healthy at this point in time.
आप सब से पुनः अपील है कि लॉकडाउन को गंभीरता से लें। घर के अंदर रहें, अपने आप को बचाएं, अपने परिवार को बचाएं।— Yogi Adityanath (@myogiadityanath) March 23, 2020
सभी से अनुरोध है कि निर्देशों, नियमों और कानूनों का पालन करें और इस महामारी के विरुद्ध लड़ाई में सरकार के साथ मिल कर काम करें।
सतर्क रहें, जागरूक रहें।
He has also announced lockdowns in 16 districts of the state.
They are Lucknow, Agra, Gautam Buddha Nagar, Ghaziabad, Varanasi, Allahabad, Kanpur, Aligarh, Moradabad, Lakhimpur Kheiri, Bareilly, Azamgarh, Meerut, Gorakhpur, Pilibhit and Saharanpur.
Despite the lockdown, services for supplies of food grains, milk, vegetables and medicine will remain open during the lockdown in these districts.
Sadly, many are roaming on the streets of the country and congregating, thereby increasing the chances of spreading the virus.
Therefore, the UP CM has urged: "Unnecessary crowding should be avoided, and people should avoid gathering in public places. This is because as we are standing at a juncture, where even a slight laxity can prove to be harmful."
Yogi Adityanath has been extremely proactive in dealing with the crisis. He has banned the public celebration of Ram Navami. It is a sane move considering that lakhs congregate during this period.
He has also decided to give a pension of Rs 1000 per person per day to construction workers and daily wagers, thereby taking care of their daily needs.
At the time of writing this article, the number of detected cases in India is in excess of 400 while the number of deaths stands at 8.
Globally, the numbers continue to be in lakhs while the deaths stand at 14, 717.
