At the time of lockdown, there has been a stir across the country after confirmation of coronavirus in tabloids spread in 14 states. The administration is busy in the occupation of Tabligi everywhere but the crowd of people is becoming an obstacle in this work. So far, incidents of stone pelting on the police have come up in many places across the country. Local people also pelted stones at the health department team that arrived at Indore's Tatpatti Bakhal on Wednesday to investigate the corona infections.
