Gomani V applauded steps which the government has taken on the preparedness.

“The pandemic is a global concern and spreading fake news as is the case on social media platforms cannot help the situation. Let us all refrain from sharing such false information. It would be great if we would be sharing the information without causing panic,” he said.
