The novel Coronavirus pandemic has resulted in the shutdown of schools, gyms, offices, movie theatres and several public places across India. People have resorted to social distancing as a precautionary measure to curb the spread of the deadly virus.

Recently, a group of people from Nagpur city took to the streets to work out after all the gyms in the state were shut due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

A few women were spotted exercising with dumbbells as men performed pushups.

One of the participants, a local named Hardeep Bhatia told ANI, “We are building our immunity system by exercising”.
