As the world panics about the Covid-19 Coronavirus, every country is trying to restrict and resolve the crisis around it. India has also been dealing with the Covid-19 crisis with massive preparedness. Digpu News Network has brought yet another initiative named #ClapCoronaAway to increase participation in Janta Curfew in India.
In a recent address to the nation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi made an appeal to people across India to follow ‘Janta Curfew’ on Sunday, 22nd March, from 7 AM to 9 PM.
Prime Minister Modi has urged everyone to call and inform at least 10 other people every day about the ‘Janta Curfew’ as well as the measures to prevent spreading of Coronavirus.
PM Modi asked all citizens to cheer up for the medical fraternity and every other individual who has been extending their services – airlines’ staff, the cleanliness staff, those who deliver food, those who drive railways, bus or autorickshaws, government officials, policemen and the media.
Terming them as ‘Rashtra Rakshaks’, PM Narendra Modi said that the country was indebted to their services. PM Modi urged citizens to stand in the balconies at 5 PM on 22nd March and clap for five minutes to express gratitude to such people.
We, at Digpu, understand the necessity of self-quarantine and social distancing when the world is fighting the Covid-19 pandemic. While the whole nation will be under ‘Janta Curfew’ on Sunday, the 22nd of March, we urge people to #ClapCoronaAway by clapping their hands and ringing bells to cheer for everyone who is providing their services to us amidst such trying times for 5 minutes at 5 pm IST.
Share your images or videos on social media using the hashtag #ClapCoronaAway and tell us how you supported the Janta Curfew. We would love to know how each one of you cheered for our health workers and other service providers.
