Mr. Modi in his special national address on 19 March evening has called upon the nation to be ready for voluntary and mandatory curfews to stem the spread of the virus.

India’s response to the Coronavirus is getting tougher as the number of people affected crossed the 200 mark. Globally, Italy crossed China in terms of the number of deaths, making Europe the epicentre of the pandemic. Indian government has already barred travellers from many nations but now will entirely ban international flights between 22nd March and 29th March.

In addition, the Sunday 22 March will also be observed as internal curfew day and streets will be voluntarily kept deserted. Over 2500 flights will be cancelled during these seven days and that is likely to lead to huge losses to these aviation companies.

This shutdown is likely to lead to huge disruption on international travel and business as well as to small and medium enterprises. But the government may not really have another option.

PM Modi announced janta curfew so that coronavirus can not spread all over India being world's 2nd largest populated country can get easily effected by the virus it can lead to more deaths because we dont have that much mechanical healthcare systems in India which can lead to m*** destruction and will be difficult to handle it. Yes curfew can lead to losses but can save lives of many people because if there will be no person in an economy.
