Mumbai: Coronavirus: Indians on self Quarantine – 14 hour long Janta Curfew begins, read details here

Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a televised address to the nation urged citizens to stay indoors from 7am to 9pm- on Sunday, 22nd March, a move that he said would be a crucial test for a country to assess its abilities to fight the pandemic.

“Let us all be a part of this curfew, which will add tremendous strength to the fight against the COVID-19 menace,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted minutes before the ‘Janta Curfew’ commenced. “The steps we take now will help in the times to come,’ he said in the tweet.

Mumbai, the bustling metropolis, the city of dreams that never sleeps woke up on Sunday to an unusual spectacle. Some of the city’s busiest roads looked deserted, devoid of the usual scurrying of Mumbaikars.

With over 60 Covid-19 positive cases in Maharashtra, Mumbai is right in the centre of the coronavirus outbreak being the financial capital of India and also the entertainment hub of the country.
The city has come to a standstill in the wake of the 14-hour Janta Curfew.

The otherwise busy Western Express Highway bore a deserted look on Sunday morning with barely any commuters on the route. Dadar station barely had any takers of the local train. Few of those passengers who were present were checked for their identity before boarding local trains.

Meanwhile, BEST buses will operate normally as per the Sunday schedule..
