Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday will address the 63rd edition of his monthly radio programme 'Mann Ki Baat' at 11 am amid nationwide lockdown in the country in the view of the novel coronavirus.
Today's episode will focus on the situation prevailing in the country in the wake of COVID-19.
"Tune in tomorrow at 11. Tomorrow's episode will be focused on the situation prevailing due to COVID-19. #MannKiBaat," the Prime Minister tweeted on Saturday.
During his address to the nation on March 24, the Prime Minister announced a 21-day nationwide to contain the spread of the deadly virus. He said that "social distancing" is the only option to deal with the disease, which spreads rapidly.
Prime Minister had said that the world is going through a serious phase and citizens have fought the novel coronavirus epidemic firmly. He also requested senior citizens to remain indoors for the next few weeks.
However, the declaration has triggered a massive migration of daily wage workers and construction workers, who have decided to walk back home. Thousands of men, women and children are currently stranded in Delhi's Anand Vihar bus terminal, hoping for a ride back home after the Uttar Pradesh government said they will arrange 1,000 buses to ferry these workers back home.
The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) had earlier said there are 918 confirmed cases of coronavirus cases in the country and 19 died due to the virus.
