New Delhi:

Amitabh Bachchan, who has been actively spreading word on social media to contain the spread of Coronavirus, posted a picture on Twitter on Tuesday. Sharing a picture of a hand with the stamp of "Home Quarantined" on it, Big B urged people to "Keep safe, be cautious, remain isolated if detected." Maharashtra, which has the highest number of Coronavirus-positive cases in the country, is stamping the hands of those asked at hotels and airports to home quarantine - the stamp, which includes the dates of isolation, will last for 14 days. "Stamping started on hands with voter ink, in Mumbai . Keep safe, be cautious, remain isolated if detected," read Big B's post.
