Will Share Video Message With Fellow Indians At 9 am Tomorrow: PM Narendra Modi

At 9 am tomorrow morning, I’ll share a small video message with my fellow Indians,’ Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted.

New Delhi| Amid the ongoing 21-day lockdown in India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that he would be sharing a video message with the citizens tomorrow, Friday at 9 am.

“At 9 am tomorrow morning, I’ll share a small video message with my fellow Indians,” PM Modi tweeted in English and Hindi.

Many believe his message could be related to the coronavirus crisis.

The PM has addressed the nation twice since the pandemic became a cause for serious concern in India.

India is currently on a 21-day lockdown since 25 March 2020 due to the novel coronavirus outbreak in the country.

During this time, PM Modi has been sharing a number of creative ideas to make the best use of the quarantine period. The prime minister has also been advocating a series of yoga exercises to the citizens to stay fit while at home.

Recently, he shared a video on ‘Yoga Nidra’ — a yoga asana which he practices at least twice a week.

India recorded a spike in COVID-19 positive cases by over 400 in the past 24 hours as the contagion continues to spread across the country. The sudden jump in cases is linked to the Tablighi Jamaat event in Delhi’s Nizamuddin which was attended by around 3,400 people in early March.

The authorities are also working to trace more of these people who attended the event in order to prevent the jump in confirmed cases.

The total number of active novel coronavirus cases in the country stands at 1,965 in the country while the death tally is at 50, according to the latest information on the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare’s website.

Globally, too the picture remains grim as the US reported its largest single-day death toll on Wednesday. The UK also reported around 550 deaths.
