Towards a People Focused Covid-19 Response

Update: Update: March 28, 2020

Stopping spread of infection, ensuring protection and reducing impact of lockdown

The outbreak of COVID-19 has brought the entire country to a halt and in strong lockdown for the next few weeks. These and other swift measures taken by the Government of India to close national borders and enforce social isolation in order to contain the spread of the coronavirus are appreciable and in the best interests of all Indians. While we must ensure that these measures are implemented with due respect for civil rights and liberties, thus guarding against the use of indiscriminate force, we must also turn our full attention to protecting and sustaining people of our country.
