Right to ‘right information’ on COVID-19
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is now a pandemic.
Only vaccine and medicine which works against the virus is ‘information’.
The most important factor in preventing the spread of the Virus is to empower the citizens with the right information and taking precautions as per the advisories being issued by Government of India and State Governments. (www.mygov.in)
Nations are taking unprecedented steps to contain the virus. Some of them are drastic and appear to be violating even fundamental rights. It must be difficult time for decision makers to weigh the anticipated benefits versus sacrifices to be made by the society.
People should be well-informed of these measures and their intention for successful implementation.
This website is an initiative in that direction, which ensures all documents are from Government sources and a few guides from eminent media organisations.
