The country observed ‘Janta Curfew’ in order to contain the spread of the corona virus. People voluntarily stayed indoors to practice social distancing and all the markets and shops were shut. Due to the outbreak of corona virus, all the streets and roads are deserted. The implementation of travel restrictions and quarantine measures to contain the virus has led to the emptying of public spaces.
Citizens are barred to go out of their homes and can only go out to buy essential groceries or in case of a medical emergency. Fear is growing amid the country regarding the spread of the virus. It is a surreal crisis situation for the whole world. While these tough measures will have a short-term economic impact, it will ensure safety and welfare of everyone.
