India observes 14-hour curfew to curb COVID-19 spread

In an effort to curb the spread of the COVID-19, India launched a 14-hour long curfew on Sunday. So far, the country has reported 332 cases of infections with five deaths. In an address to the nation last week, PM Modi urged citizens to stay indoors from 0130 GMT to 1530 GMT, calling the move a crucial test for a country to assess its abilities to fight the pandemic.
