Courts are such places which can't be shut. Hundreds of people visit the court daily related to their cases.

On a daily basis, we meet a number of clients so whether to shake hands or when the person is breathless, the chances of spreading this disease are very high. We can't stop them but we can defeinitely take precautions. Being the president of the association it is my responsibility take proper care of my lawyers, More added.

Due to coronavirus the courts cannot be closed as it is one of the important place of the system. The disease can be stopped by taking proper care on time. The Government has to take lot of action for the relief of the people rather than spending time on CAA, NRC and NPR, said Advocate Odette Mendocnca.

While Advocate Ranjita Jain said, "Precaution is the greatest medicine. If we keep ourselves healthy and take precautions; we will not only save ourselves from this disease but can prevent it from spreading to others. In today's Pooja, we prayed to god to save us and the people of our country from this disease.

Advocate Abhaya Sonavne stated, "We prayed to god and asked him to save us and save our people from the disease and also raised slogan "Go Corona Go".

"We should avoid public place. We Indian's shall be united in such situation where we are unaware about our enemy; precaution is better than cure. We interact with dozens of people every day, who are infected and who is not we cannot judge. Therefore, the bar association has decided to distribute face mask to every advocate who is working in the court," said Advocate Firoz A Khan.
