On the night of March 24th, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a national lockdown that has stunted many households and mainly movement. This move was taken taking into consideration the rapid rate at which the corona virus has been growing across the nation. Coronavirus cases across the country have cross the 690 mark. People are finding it difficult to move out of their houses for basic daily needs and medical facilities if required but today a relieving news came out from the Tamil Nadu government.
There has been a lot of confusion, commotion and anxiety related to the closure of grocery, daily needs shops across the city. Though the Central government made it clear that essential supplies will not be affected, the local police encouraged closure of shops to avoid panic buying and overcrowding.
Madurai has been a silent epicenter of panic due to the recent coronavirus pandemic outbreak. This was attributed to the fact that the first death due to coronavirus in Tamil Nadu struck a man from Madurai.
