New Delhi, Mar 24: Urging the people to be united in the fight against coronavirus, Indian National Congress' former president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday appealed to the public to follow strict social isolation and distancing measures.
"I strongly appeal to each of you to follow strict social isolation and distancing measures. Containing the virus requires us to minimise our contact with people as much as possible," the Congress leader said in an Open letter to the people.
"We must adopt strict social isolation and distancing measures to slow down transmission,'' he said.
"Please remember that social isolation is not a holiday and any non-essential travel or social gathering during this time will only heighten the risk of contracting COVID-19," the Congress leader said.
Mr Gandhi said he would like to commend the doctors, frontline health workers, workers providing essential services, sanitation workers and the district administration for putting up a spirited fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.''The public health personnel have displayed exemplary courage, even at great personal risk to themselves," he said.
