In the wake of the growing number of coronavirus cases in the country, PM Modi yesterday announced a complete lockdown of India for 21 days to blunt the spread of the contagion that has so far affected hundreds. With lockdown in place, everyone is expected to stay at their homes and exercise strict social distancing to arrest the ominous spread of the disease. However, this luxury is not extended to police officials who are putting their lives on the line to ensure law and order is maintained in the country and the spread of the contagion is contained.

While most of the people remain homebound abiding by the lockdown restrictions, police officials have to venture out and discharge their duty so as to ensure the lockdown is followed in letter and spirit. This has left the family of police officials in great anxiety and distress owing to the highly contagious nature of the coronavirus.

“Father, there is corona outside. There is corona outside,” the child laments. His father then tries to console him saying, “I am only going to be out for 2 minutes”. The video which is approximately half a minute long shows the child desperately begging his father to not leave the house.

The video poignantly highlights the emotional hardships faced and sacrifices made by police officials for the greater good of the society despite the palpable threat of the novel coronavirus to their lives. Similarly, doctors, nurses, healthcare workers, bankers and all others involved in indispensable services are too fighting on the frontline against the coronavirus to contain its spread and minimise the disruption caused by the pandemic.
