On Tuesday, PM Modi took to media to announce that the nation will be locked down for 21 days in order to kill the coronavirus that has been spreading throughout the world. However, this did create a panic among the people who rushed to the shops to load the essentials.
Modi then took to Social media to announce that there is no need for panic buying as the essentials will be available throughout.
Here is the list announced by the Government.
By converging around shops, you are risking the spread of COVID-19.
No panic buying please.
Please stay indoors.
I repeat- Centre and State Governments will ensure all essentials are available. https://t.co/bX00az1h7l
