Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma took to Twitter to request their fans to stay at home during the nationwide 21 days lockdown, announced by PM Narendra Modi on Tuesday. “These are testing times and we need to wake up to the seriousness of this situation. Please let us all follow what’s been told to us and stand united, please. It’s a plea to everyone,” Kohli captioned the 51-second-long video on Twitter. Earlier, the Indian captain made a humble appeal to the fellow Indian citizens to follow the fresh guidelines issued by PM Modi to stop the coronavirus from spreading.
Welcoming the move, Indian skipper Kohli requested the fellow countrymen to “stay at home” for the next 21 days as “social distancing is the only cure” available with us which can stop Covid 19 from spreading.
“As our Honourable PM 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.
