India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi has imposed a nationwide lockdown in an attempt to slow the spread of the coronavirus. The restrictions came into force at midnight local time and will be enforced for 21 days. “There will be a total ban on venturing out of your homes,” Mr Modi said in a televised address. India – which has a population of 1.3 billion – joins a growing list of countries that have imposed similar measures. Nearly 400,000 people have tested positive for the virus worldwide, and around 17,000 have died.
