COVID-19: PM Narendra Modi to address the nation at 8:45 pm

Prime Minister Narendra Modi to address the nation on the COVID-19 situation at 8:45 Tuesday evening

Coronavirus News Live Updates: Maharashtra tightened Covid-19 curbs on Tuesday even as the Supreme Court stayed an Allahabad High Court’s order directing the Uttar Pradesh government to impose a lockdown in five cities. On the administrative front, the highlight of the day is Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s meeting with vaccine manufacturers in the evening. It comes a day after India made everyone above 18 eligible for the jab.

In Delhi, amid reports of migrant workers leaving the national capital in view of strict curbs, lieutenant governor Anil Baijal issued an appeal asking settlers not to leave the city. “I assured you that the government will help you in all possible ways during this coronavirus crisis. Arrangements are being made for you,” his office tweeted.

A year down since the announcement was made, one of the highest searched terms on the internet is will Prime Minister Narendra Modi address the nation tonight.

This news has been circulated on chat groups several times. However this is fake news and the PM is not addressing the nation tonight.

While there is no information about the PM addressing the nation tonight, he is however addressing three public meetings at Kathi, West Bengal. Bihpur and Sipajhar, Assam. Both states along with Tamil Nadu, Kerala and the Union Territory of Puducherry are going to polls and the counting of votes will be held on May 2.

The news of the Prime Minister addressing the nation tonight is not right. On Tuesday, the Ministry of Home Affairs had issued fresh guidelines. In the guidelines the MHA said States and UTs, based on their assessment of the situation, may impose local restrictions, at district/ sub-district and city/ ward level, with a view to contain the spread of COVID-19
