Coronavirus one of the biggest threats we have faced globally in a very long time. The pandemic is claiming more lives every day and the only way to battle it is if we stay indoors. Last night, PM Modi addressed the nation and announced a 21-days-long lockdown all across the country as a preventive measure. The lockdown was supposed to be lifted on March 31 but has been extended till April 15 considering the gravity of this pandemic.
Celebs have been taking to their social media to appreciate this move and have been lauding the PM regarding the same. While they have praised this lockdown, they have also been urging everyone to stay safe and abide by the instructions and directives provided by the government. Even though it is not going to be easy to get through this, celebrities have encouraged people to stay strong.
Take a look at some of their tweets.

I shot this an hour back. This was inevitable to stop the spread & it is literally what the absolute stupidity of a few has done. The country is shut till 14th April now. Maybe not completely but a part of this lockdown & curfew is because of the lack of discipline of a certain few who dared to wander & not take the situation seriously... 21 days begin now !!!
21 days !
Not a lot for us in return of our lives.
Let’s do this everyone ! ????????
And hopefully by the end of THIS lockdown we surely will have a reason n time to celebrate. Until then let’s get through one day at a time.

We are now at a collective turning point, where we must stop, listen & help the government implement the 21 days all India lockdown. The time of great fear requires solidarity,humanity, sacrifice & hope.Not hysteria & rumour mongering. #21daysLockdown
