In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and 21 days of lockdown issued by the authorities, we're all confined to our homes. But the concerned administrators have also kept the basic needs of the citizens in mind and have brought in relevant regulations and directives as per the situation.

Medicines fall under the category of essential commodities and to our relief, there are pharmacies in Lucknow which are providing the residents with door-to-door delivery services. This step is intended towards decreasing the number of people out in the streets and this delivery system will also put a cap on the panic buying situation which has taken over the residents right now.


Operational Medical Stores for home delivery








On the 20th of March, 4 new coronavirus cases were reported in Lucknow which included Bollywood singer Kanika Kapoor but as of 6 PM on 27th March, no fresh cases have come to light.

Knock Knock

During such times of panic and chaos in the world, it is our heartfelt request to all our readers to stay home. This is the only way in which we can flatten the curve of this fatal virus and be assured, that the authorities are doing their best to keep everyone safe. Please practice social distancing, sanitising and self-isolation if required and at the slightest of symptoms, do not panic but calmly get yourself checked by a certified physician. Do not self-medicate, if such a condition arises.

We'd also like to extend our gratitude towards all the personnel who are outdoors right now, just to make sure that we're comfortably home and the least we can do for them, is to follow the edicts as directed.
