Indian PM Modi orders one-day nationwide virus curfew

India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi orders the country’s 1.3 billion population to follow a one-day curfew to combat the coronavirus pandemic.

Modi says in an address to the nation that the curfew will be on Sunday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. to test the giant country’s ability to take tough measures against what he called a growing crisis.

The measure will be “in the interest of the country to follow and prepare us for future challenges.”

India has reported 173 positive virus cases and four deaths.
