SELF RELIANCE IS THE ONLY KEY
The cases of coronavirus is increasing at a fast rate day by day. Although the country was in a lockdown for many days, but now only some States with containment zone are under lockdown. Rest all the states are free to work. As this is an infectious disease, self-reliance is the only key to avoid this disease. Social distancing should be followed by everybody. There are some norms and protocols of social distancing that need to be followed. People should wear a mask and gloves and always use a sanitizer.
