The video is not too long it was just for 51 seconds but it expressed the meaning that they wanted to convey not just as a celebrity but as a citizen they conveyed this message keeping in Mind of the impact that this pandemic has created all across the world.
There are several problems that we might face if this pandemic appears in large numbers i.e population of our country is too much if the cases increase it will be difficult to operate the patients.
Also as there is no vaccination available so if repercussions like Italy will happen in our country if we don’t follow the rules now. We need to wait and watch how this lockdown shapes up for the next 21 days.
