Coronavirus: India and the United States


Venkat Vellanki

India’s prime minister announced that there will be a 21-day lockdown (3 weeks) all over the nation. This means that everyone should stay safe at home. No one cannot step out unless there is an emergency or necessity of groceries, medicines, etc. Every corner of the country is under control that includes small towns, villages, etc. Even travelling is temporarily suspended as there are no planes flying in and out of the country. This step was taken by the Indian Government in order to prevent the spread of COVD-19. It is very critical to manage a nation with a large density of population. This is a tough measure that is absolutely needed to win the battle against the coronavirus pandemic. 


This lockdown has affected many people in different ways. Especially, poor people who got affected with the extreme control of their living. There are certain measures that were taken by the Central and State Governments of India. For example, providing food in certain parts of the place. Also, supporting them in every need. 


Currently, India has been recorded for having more than 1000+ positive cases in the nation. Alternatively, the lockdown is more likely to benefit in containing the spread of COVID-19 in India. 




We are battling with loads of effort in order to prevent the spread of this pandemic. The U.S. Government is working hard towards it by regulating the systems, announcing lockdowns, etc. This all sums up to each and everyone sincerely following it. Definitely, we will win this battle. The disease is spreading very fast to many places. There are numerous positive cases being added up to the list on a daily basis. Our medical officers and health organizations are efficiently working towards it. We all together are figuring for the best solutions in order to contain the disease. We are managing very well. Plus, we are the third-largest country in terms of population. This is not an easy situation for everyone. But, it is not impossible as well. We all are united and will definitely accomplish in making our future safe for everyone. 


Both India and the United States are densely populated. Both governments are helping us in every possible way. Now, we need to help them in saving us. We can do our part. EVERYONE PLEASE STAY AT HOME. This is for your own good. I know it is not easy. But, it is not impossible as well. We can do it. Do it for yourself and your loved ones. We will win together.
