Andhra Pradesh

As India is under lockdown to curb the further spread of coronavirus disease until May 3, the local police in Andhra Pradesh incorporated students from scouts and guides to dress up as the God of death, Yamraj and his assistants and walk around and create awareness. People across the world are taking in unique methods to urge people to remain indoors and practice social distancing to flatten the curve of coronavirus. The administration in Rajam town ramped up its efforts and on April 28, one student personified as Yamraj walked on the streets and cautioned people against the deadly disease of COVID-19. 

According to reports, these students even raised slogans to create awareness about the precautionary measures that people must take in the wake of the pandemic. The reason behind carrying out this campaign was that just two days ago before Srikakulam district was considered a green zone, at least four people in the region tested positive of coronavirus. As of April 28, India has recorded 29,451 confirmed cases of COVID-19 infection and 939 fatalities.
