Bengali Hunt Desk: The coronavirus from Wuhan, China, has become a global headache. Everybody in the world has witnessed the horrible form of corona virus. All the developing countries of the world are also struggling to protect themselves from the Karna virus. Corona virus has already killed millions of people around the world.

The deadly virus has entered India as well as other countries. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has decided to launch a nationwide lockdown from March 24 to curb the spread of the disease. Every state government is by his side in this decision.

The first phase of the lockdown was scheduled for April 4, but due to the current situation, the lockdown was extended to April 31. But the situation is still so complicated that there have been indications from the Prime Minister and the Chief Minister that the lockdown will increase again. It is learned that the lockdown may continue till May 21.

The corona virus has infected people in professions associated with various emergency services such as doctors, police, nurses, hospital staff and journalists. People involved in other professions have been repeatedly mentioned, but journalists are a bit backfoot. But journalists are the pillars of democracy.

This time Orissa Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik stood by the journalists because every person is getting all the news of the country sitting at home for them.

Recently, he said, journalists and cameramen were being caught trying to cover the Corona virus in this situation. Corona positive of 30 journalists has already been detected in Mumbai. Ranjoy Roy, a renowned Bengali photojournalist, has fallen into the lap of corona. That is why Orissa Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik announced, “If a journalist dies of corona, his family will be given a lump sum of Rs 15 lakh. Because journalists are the pillars of democracy. In such a situation, their words cannot be forgotten. ”
