The citizens are forced to live at their homes and isolate themselves from gathering and meeting people to keep themselves safe from Coronavirus.

However, World Health Organization says that these lockdowns are not sufficient in fight against Coronavirus.

World Health Organization Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said: “ To slow the spread of #COVID19, many countries introduced "lockdown" measures. But on their own, these measures will not extinguish epidemics. We call on all countries to use this time to attack the #coronavirus. You've created a 2nd window of opportunity,”.

Salman Bin Abdul Aziz also wrote: “ As the world confronts the COVID-19 pandemic and the challenges to healthcare systems and the global economy, we convene this extraordinary G20 summit to unite efforts towards a global response.,”.
