People are hungry, thirsty, crying & dying, walking home to meet their families. Government Police are beating them. Not allowing them into states – turning them away.

The government sent special jet planes to China and Italy to bring back hundreds of Indians home. It was also good PR. Are these poor, not Indians? Do they deserve this? How can the world tolerate this? We must unite to stop this.

PEOPLE
Follow @PMOIndia 's national guidelines on social distancing, hand washing, and lockdown to avoid spreading #coronavirus and crowding existing limited health infrastructure-difficult due to population density, slums, and joint families.

PPP
Produce more test kits, test more people, and install more hospital beds through PPP. Respect our health workers and follow the needed discipline to flatten the curve & get through this crisis as quickly as possible.
