In a move that will surely help, the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting set up a dedicated Twitter handle to help share news, updates and announcements about the Coronavirus in India. Called #IndiaFightsCorona, the account goes by the handle @CovidnewsbyMIB. This is a great move to keep people abreast of the situation. With a clever and more transparent approach of keeping the public informed, this handle has also shared the helpline numbers for any sort of information on the pandemic as its first tweet. 

The handle also shares live feeds from Press Briefings regarding the Coronavirus. As of writing this article, the handle already has about 12.k followers and should see more in the coming weeks. You can head on to Twitter to follow the handle. 

The situation has grown rather serious in India with companies like Airtel, Reliance and even Facebook, pitching in to help out with the Coronavirus pandemic. You can even recharge your Reliance Jio number at an ATM. As India heads into the second week of lockdown, more and more companies are reaching out and trying to help.
