For God’s sake, continue to stay indoors! Janata curfew is only the first step to contain virus

Bengaluru: With millions of Indians taking part in Janata Curfew on March 22 from 7 am to 9 pm with a view to breaking the chain of transmission, it was indeed a great movement in curbing the spread of the dreaded coronavirus.
But it is rather sad, shocking and even surprising to note that many are under the impression that there will no transmission of the virus after Sunday. This is rank ignorance!
The movement was only an endeavour to alert and awake the common man and infuse a sense of discipline in stopping the virus spread. But that is only one step towards the might goal!
We still need to stay indoors, step out only and only if it is necessary and maintain social-distancing religiously. Let’s reiterate that social-distancing means maintaining at least an arm’s length on all sides so that droplets from sneeze or cough do not spread to the next immediate person.
