Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that no central government minister will travel abroad in the coming days, as the government pulled out all stops to tackle the spread of coronavirus.
“Say No to Panic, Say Yes to Precautions. No Minister of the Central Government will travel abroad in the upcoming days. I urge our countrymen to also avoid non-essential travel. We can break the chain of spread and ensure safety of all by avoiding large gatherings,” PM Modi tweeted on Thursday.
This comes after the government issued fresh advisory for Indian nationals and asked them to avoid all non-essential travels.
“The Government is fully vigilant about the situation due to COVID-19 Novel Coronavirus. Across ministries & states, multiple steps have been proactively taken to ensure safety of all. These steps are wide-ranging, from suspension of Visas to augmenting healthcare capacities,” PM Modi said in another tweet.
