This year nation is celebrating Holi, the color festival of India, on March 09 and March 10, 2020. But due to novel coronavirus outbreak from China, which has spreaded at a faster rate to more than 70 countries, is impacting the celebration this year.

In India, most of the Holi colors and accesories like water gun, balloons, etc. are imported from China. Recent coronavirus outbreak has imposed restrictions on importing goods and services from China due to which Indian market is low this year in Holi. As more than 30 cases of coronavirus has been reported in India, people are fearing and not purchasing the colors this time to stay prevented from this novel virus. 

The Prime Minister of India, Mr. Narendra Modi has said that they will not play Holi this year and will not hold the 'Holi Milan' event to prevent the people from getting infected from COVID-19 virus. They have also requested the citizens to avoid unnecessary mass gathering in order to stay safe. People are dropping their Holi plans and pool party events to prevent themselves from the outbreak.

According to the World Health Organization, the death count has increased to more than 3000 all over the world. Although the number of cases reported in China has been decreased over last few days but in India the count has reached to 39 cases. Recently, 5 positive cases of coronavirus has been detected in Kerala, India. 

We can use eco-friendly organic colors made in India to celebrate colorful Holi. As a preventive measure avoid handshakes and greet people with Namaste. Avoid going to mass events and keep your environment and surrounding clean. Clean your hands frequently in order to reduce the chances of getting infected.

Wising you a very Happy and Safe Holi..!!
