Welcoming PM Modi’s 21 days nationwide lockdown to break the chain of coronavirus transmission, Indian skipper Virat Kohli requested fellow Indians to follow the Govt guidelines to stop the spread of coronavirus.
As our Honourable Prime Minister, Shri @NarendraModi ji just announced, the whole country is going into a lockdown starting midnight today for the next 21 days. My request will remain the same, PLEASE STAY AT HOME. 🙏🏼 #SocialDistancing is the only cure for Covid 19.
