Cases of coronavirus are increasing exponentially at a global scale. Despite preventive measures and security guidelines given out by the World Health Organization and government authorities, panic buying and social stigma have taken centre stage.
In India, over 110 cases have tested positive and two have died due to COVID-19. Washing hands at regular intervals and maintaining social distance is key at preventing the virus from spreading. Now, a Twitter user has come up with an innovative analogy to keep the viral infection at bay.
In a Twitter thread uploaded on March 16, user @sagarcasm showed with pictures, ‘How to fight coronavirus: Lessons from Rahul Dravid’.
