The Indian government has announced a total lockdown of their country for 21 days because of the coronavirus.
India will begin the world’s largest lockdown on Wednesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced in a TV address, warning citizens to stay inside or risk inviting the pandemic into their homes, and pledging $2 billion to bolster the country’s beleaguered health care system.
“To save India and every Indian, there will be a total ban on venturing out,” Modi said Tuesday night, acknowledging that the 21-day lockdown would be a major blow to the economy, but insisting that the alternative could set the country back 21 years.
The move puts nearly one-fifth of the world’s population under lockdown.
These extreme measures were totally unnecessary. All they had to do was let Indians drink cow urine and eat cow dung. These substances are widely believed by their people to have many benefits including the ability to kill the coronavirus.
