Coronavirus: Social media tested positive or negative? You decide…
Modi government along with every Indian are facing one of the toughest times in history due to the coronavirus outbreak. Nobody knows when this COVID 19 pandemic will stop spreading its infection among people and when it will allow us to move freely wherever we want.
However, the death and positive cases tally have been increased since the virus spread across the globe. In India, 642 positive cases for coronavirus have come to light while death cases reached 16, with Tamil Nadu and Madhya Pradesh recording their first deaths due to COVID 19. While Gujarat has reported its second death.
While in China, the epicenter of the deadly virus has registered over 81,000 confirmed cases so far, according to the WHO.
To combat the deadly, Indian government is planning all the possible steps and considering all the sections of society i.e. from poor people to daily wage workers, as their priority.
Today, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman also announced a Garib Kalyan package and other announcements to deal with the crisis that the poor section of Indian society is facing.
Besides, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has earlier announced the 21-days nationwide lockdown in a bid to fight against coronavirus outbreak. PM Modi also asked citizens to take the lockdown seriously otherwise legal action will be taken against the violators.
Because of the curfew-like lockdown, several people are taking the self-quarantine very seriously and also warning others to follow the rules properly. But, there is one section of the society who are not taking lockdown seriously and violating the lockdown orders by not staying indoors and also misbehaving with Police officers who are doing their duty to stop the unwanted movement of people.
People who are staying indoors are also active on social media and keeping themselves busy by sharing their experiences on their social media handles. On the other hand, some people are busy in creating panic either by sharing fake news or by giving misinformation about the virus.
Amid coronavirus scare, several Internet users are still not taking the virus perilous and are busy making fun of the virus by sharing jokes, memes, and even videos.
Let’s have a look at how social media discerned coronavirus:

In times of crisis, some human beings devolve into the worst versions of themselves. Or may be that was them all along? . Thank you @mumbaigirl14 @timesofindia for taking this message far & wide, in light of the online & public #racism & discrimination against North-East Indians & the Indian-Chinese🙏🏼 And thank you everyone for your unstinting humanism & love since this article broke yesterday (or today, depending on which city you are in). I'm reading your messages and I'm so, so touched by your kind words. Let's stay united; in spirit & in philosophy. Now and always 🤗 . And to those stray trolls who are still spewing venom on my timeline; I say to you, as we would back in Bihar-Jharkhand: "भक साला, तुम तो हमारे प्यार के क़ाबिल भी नहीं हो बे! लेकिन, तुमको भी दीर्घायु भवः।" . Stay safe, stay healthy everyone ❤️
