A request to go with the rules set by the Government to save our country

Dear Readers,

You might think staying at home for a continuous phase is a very difficult job. But you know what to see your countrymen, your own people suffering from an unstoppable infection is much more difficult. Just remember at this scenario, to you which is just a simple handshake, a simple cough or a simple sneeze of an individual can actually create thousands of people affected by Coronavirus because of you. Nothing can be a safe place for you than your little home, so keep your house clean and remain there until you require any emergency basic services. This phase of staying at home will save your life, it will save the life of your future generation, it will save the lives of those who are connected to your souls, it will save the life of many individuals and above all it will save the entire nation. Stay at home and keep getting update about new researches. Tell the old aged people and the children of your family the necessity of locking down. While we are locked down, a part of our population is working day and night just to serve us in this crisis, so value their hard-works and gift them the best award by “STAYING AT HOME” for their sacrifices. Keep alerting yourself as well as to your own people by giving the reminder to wash hands with soap.

Stay safe Citizens!
