The country will be observing an unprecedented shutdown on Sunday following Prime Minister Narendra Modi's appeal for a janatha curfew, where people have been asked to voluntarily stay indoors to check the spread of coronavirus while public transport will be suspended or curtailed and all markets and shops except those dealing with essential items and services will be closed on the day.

Cutting across party lines, chief ministers and others leaders urged the people to follow the self-imposed curfew from 7 am to 9 pm, noting that "social distancing" was key to breaking the chain of infection.
