Man calls Toll Free Corona Number, asks police to deliver 4 hot Samosas

Everyone is well aware of the fact that India, at the moment, is under complete lockdown to contain the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak. It is to be noticed that the Coronavirus is bent upon killing human beings, eliminating them. It has put the entire world in a lockdown.

Amid the nationwide lockdown to check the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, every state has issued an emergency helpline to aid in the supply of medicine and the other essentials.

In a surprising incident, a youth from Uttar Pradesh reportedly called the COVID-19 helpline asking for the samosas, UP police decided to deliver the snack along with the harsh lesson. He was given a punishment for troubling officials during the lockdown

A District Magistrate of Rampur Aunjaneya Kumar Singh took to his Twitter handle to share what had happened when the man asked samosas, and he was then made to clean the drains as a part of his punishment.

The tweet, which is doing the rounds on social media, shows that “After warnings, we had to deliver samosas to him,” in addition to this it was also stated that “For troubling the control room with non-essential needs, the man was also made to clean drains,” 

In his next tweet, he requested all the citizens to be responsible and stay at home during the lockdown.

However, India is making all the necessary efforts to bring the fast-spreading disease under control. But the speed with which COVID-19 is spreading across the globe seems unstoppable.

In India alone, the confirmed positive cases of coronavirus have surpassed 1,000 so far, while at least 29 people have died in the country from the infection.

The Central government is taking significant steps to control the coronavirus. Recently, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a complete lockdown for 21 days across the nation in order to curb the spread of the coronavirus epidemic.

Scientists are trying their best to find a complete cure to combat the fast-spreading disease. Unfortunately, for now, there is no vaccination or cure available to help patients recover the deadly disease. So it is advised to take all possible precautions. Maintain social distancing to avoid coronavirus infection. Make sure that you keep yourself away from those who have coronavirus symptoms.
