Prime Minister Narendra Modi had directed to people last week to observe the Janata Curfew on Sunday where people had to voluntarily stay at home to contain the spread of Coronavirus. Modi had also directed people to express gratitude to the emergency workers by clapping, clanging plates from their windows for five minutes at 5 pm on Sunday.
