    To stop this virus sprrad serious awareness among citizens, making available basic precaution safety things like mask, sanitisers to less fortunate and making them understand the importance to use this should be the topmost priority of the government. Just announcing restrictions, lockdown will not help to control virus as even during lockdown or restrictions even if are not coming on roads they still come out of their homes and talk to their neighbours or friends without mask and even if they are wearing mask it is hanging on their neck. AWARENESS AND FREE DISTRIBUTION OF SAFETY ITEMS WILL CONTROL THIS VIRUS IF NOT ERADICATE IT.
