Tasked with implementing a nationwide 21-day lockdown, police forces across the nation have come up with some unique ways to inform people about the dangers of the COVID-19 virus. The Bangalore Traffic Police may just have come up with the most hilarious skit to spread awareness about the virus and to urge people not to venture out unless necessary.
The video, which was tweeted from their official account, shows a police officer making an announcement before a biker arrives on the scene. A police officer wearing a helmet resembling the coronavirus sits pillion while another dressed similarly runs up and begins troubling the man riding the motorcycle.
The rider is then made to wear a coronavirus-shaped helmet, which is meant to signify that he is travelling away with the virus.

Many who came across the video lauded the officials for their creativity but also had a good laugh:
😂😂Once all this is over & evil (Darona virus) leaves 🌍 Earth, we all will look back, smile & tell it to generations to come, “it was hell of a time, but those were the days”
