Chennai: Even after the country has been locked down due to COVID-19, people are still getting out of their houses despite several appeals. People are not aware of the importance of social distancing.
Police in Chennai took a step to another extent for creating awareness among the people about the importance of them staying at home amid lockdown. What they have done is, a police personnel is made to wear a helmet that is designed like coronavirus.
The helmet has been designed by a local artist Gowtham.
Speaking to ANI, Inspector Rajesh Babu says, “We had been talking to public. But awareness among them is very less. So we thought of doing something different. We designed a helmet that looks like coronavirus. We thought of doing something which will scare the people and make them stay at home.”
