Coronavirus shutdown wipes out nearly a quarter of India’s economy, suffering worst contraction ever

Suranjit Chatterjee, a senior consultant at Internal Medicine at Apollo Hospitals in New Delhi, described the move as “positive,” but warned that infected people should stay at home and “show greater responsibility towards the community, by observing all the norms.”

Chatterjee believes the decision also comes as a relief to doctors and other healthcare workers who have been infected.

Ajit Jain of the state-run Rajiv Gandhi Super Specialty Hospital agreed that “there is stigma” attached to Covid-19.

When a poster is pasted outside someone’s house, the neighbors start avoiding the family. Even after they recover, people keep away from them.

Total coronavirus cases in India stood at 7.12 million on Monday, according to the Health Ministry. The figures are behind only the United States, which is approaching 8 million cases.
