Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra took to her social media account to request her fans and followers to stay home as India battles the second coronavirus wave.
As the situation in India goes out of control, the beautiful actress expresses her concern by posting on her personal account, asking people to get vaccinated and stay safe for their loved ones.
"The Covid-19 situation across India is grave. I'm seeing images and stories coming in from different parts of the country that are so scary. The situation is out of control and our medical fraternity is at a breaking point," wrote Priyanka, in a post she shared on Twitter and Instagram.
"Please stay home, I beg you to stay home. Do it for yourself, your family, friends, neighbours, community and also our frontline workers. Every doctor and frontline worker is saying the exact same thing.
--Ensure everyone you know stays home
--If you have to step out, wear a mask
--Talk to those around you and help them understand this situation... we cannot take this lightly.
--Get the vaccine when it's your turn
Doing this will help us ease the immense pressure on our medical system," she added.
Priyanka's tweet comes at a time when, according to the Union Health Ministry data, 2,59,170 cases have been reported over the past 24 hours.
