As per the updates from the MHA, almost all activities have been allowed outside the containment zones except a few like that of functioning of schools and colleges and international travel, among others.

Apart from a number of private channels, National broadcaster Doordarshan is also telecasting the Prime Minister’s address live.

Interestingly, PM Modi’s address to the nation comes at a crucial time of growing India-China border tensions.

Amid the bitter standoff between the armies of the two countries, the centre on Monday night banned 59 Chinese apps under national security considerations. This move from the Centre is seen as India’s response to China’s recent misadventures in Eastern Ladakh that killed 20 soldiers of Indian Army.
