Know why Bengaluru was under lockdown in 1928
In 1918, the Spanish flu hit the entire world and killed over 50 million people. Even after 10 years, in 1928, the same type of infection again appeared in the city of Bangalore. But Bangalore has overcome the disease by measures like social distancing and lockdown. The then municipal authorities have banned group gatherings in open places, people suffering from cough and fever must stay indoors, people were asked not to visit movie halls and drama theatres and banned spitting in public places.
