With an intention to instill the seriousness of Coronavirus pandemic among citizens, a cop in Chennai has come up with a unique solution. Chennai Police Inspector Rajesh Babu has started wearing a ‘Coronavirus helmet,’ created by a local artist, while at work.
The helmet is designed similar to the microscopic view of coronavirus, which has spikes on its surface. PI Rajesh Babu, from the southern part of Chennai, wears the helmet as he stops commuters or pedestrians at check points.
Needless to say, the move takes citizens by surprise and make them more aware about the virus. Rajesh Babu, who wears the helmet has said that the helmet so far has created a positive effect on the public, who despite the lockdown, still come out on streets.
B Gowtham, the artist behind the helmet, spoke about the reason behind creating the helmet as he said, “The public is not taking COVID-19 outbreak seriously, whereas, the police personnel are working round the clock to ensure that people stay at home so that the spread of this disease can be curbed.
Gowtham added, “I came up with the idea and used a broken helmet and papers to prepare this. I have also prepared many placards displaying slogans and handed them over to police.
