Janata curfew was requested by PM Modi as the Government of India intended to spray medicines by aeroplanes from the sky to control the spreading of COVID-19.

The Press Information Bureau has refuted the claim that medicines were to be sprayed from the sky to control COVID-19 from spreading.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a 14-hour Janta Curfew on 19 March 2020 to contain coronavirus outbreak.

The Press Information Bureau had issued a clarification on 17 March 2020 that misinformation regarding spraying medicines to control COVID-19 through aeroplanes had been circulated on social media. It added that there was no such action planned by the Indian Government.

The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19 including symptoms, prevention and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organisation or your national healthcare authority.
