According to WHO, 6 out of 100 patients of coronavirus become seriously ill. Elderly people and people who have medical issues like heart problems from before have more risk. Death rate is 1% to 4% depending on the location. All over the world the number of people who have died due to coronavirus has recently crossed 10,000. There is no vaccine or treatment still available. There is only supportive care.

In this situation, India too is trying to control the spread of the coronavirus. There are more than 400 cases in India and the number is increasing. The Central Government has ordered a lockdown in various states and all private companies and offices have been told to stop working. But people are ignoring these orders because they do not want to miss work and lose money.People who get paid per day are worst affected as now they are not getting paid and it is becoming difficult to survive

The situation is difficult because if people do not stay at home the infection will spread.On 21st March. in a press conference, UP CM Yogi Adityanath said that there are 15 lakh of daily wage labourers and about 20 lakh construction workers in the state of UP.In order to meet their daily needs, the state government will give Rs. 1000/- per month to each of them.Hopefully similar measures are carried out across the country and people stay at home.
