World Cup Still Some Time Away: Rohit Sharma Urges People to Stay Indoors Amid Coronavirus Pandemic
Some Indians celebrated with the firecrackers on Sunday (April 5) night to come out to support the commitments of sanitation warriors, health care professionals and others.

The entire world is battling against the novel COVID-19 or coronavirus. More than 1,200,000 people have been already affected in this virus, including the death reports of more than 69,000. In India, more than 100 people have died amid the coronavirus outbreak. Besides, the coronavirus cases have been reported more than 4,000. All the critical numbers are rising with time progress as many countries are struggling to control the situation.
In this situation, many countries are going through the complete lockdown process to break the chain of this virus. India is also going through the 21-day complete lockdown process, which will end on April 14. While many people in India are inside the home at the present moment, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had appealed to everyone to light up the candles, diyas etc. after blacking out their home lights at 9 PM for nine minutes on Sunday. He came out with this appeal to show up the unity against the coronavirus as well as supporting the commitments of sanitation warriors, health care professionals and others.
The entire country responded to it very well as around 32 gigawatts (GW) electricity demands were fallen in those nine minutes. While many on April 5 came out in their balconies to light up the diyas, candles, some also celebrated with firecrackers.
