New Delhi/IBNS: Amid the ongoing 21-day nationwide lockdown to combat COVID-19, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced he will be sharing a "small video message" with his countrymen on Friday morning.

He will share the message at 9 am.

The Prime Minister tweeted, "At 9 AM tomorrow morning, I’ll share a small video message with my fellow Indians."

Almost confirming that the nationwide lockdown won't be extended post Apr 14 midnight, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday asked the states to make a strategy to ensure the "staggered" movement of people once the shutdown period ends.

Modi, during a video conference with the Chief Ministers and administrators of various states on Novel Coronavirus , said as quoted by NDTV, "It is important to formulate a common exit strategy to ensure staggered re-emergence of the population once the lockdown ends."

Being accompanied by Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and Union Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan, who were sitting in a room maintaining the social distancing norm, Prime Minister Modi said certain restrictions must be in place even after the 21-day lockdown ends.

The Prime Minister has also asked the Chief Ministers to identify the "hotspots" and "encircle" them to contain infection.

The massive unprecedented 21-day lockdown called by Modi on Mar 24 to stem the spread of COVID-19.

As per the government figures, the country of 1.3 billion people witnessed the biggest single-day jump in positive cases on Wednesday as the tally now stands at 1965 though the figure is much comforting than the ones which came out of the developed western world.
