A Coronavirus Themed Auto Rickshaw Hits The Streets To Spread Awareness About COVID-19

New Delhi: Amid the ongoing crisis of coronavirus around the country that as per the government data has infected more than 27,000 people and killed around 872 people, a Chennai-based local artist B.

The founder of the Chennai-based organization the Art Kingdom talking about the COVID-19 modified auto says,

The idea is to make the public aware of these not-so-right times. Via this COVID-19 auto, we want to stop all those people who are breaking some rules like not wearing a mask or not following the guidelines of the lockdown or social distancing. The Chennai Municipal Corporation has also come up with an initiative wherein they will find people who are seen without a mask. The fine is of Rs 100. Along with this, the corporation has decided to give some masks to people if they are seen without one and are less fortunate to buy this essential item. For all this communication and awareness purpose, this auto will be used.

The another positive aspect of the COVID-19 modified auto is that it has been made using 163 plastic bottles. Highlighting the use of plastic bottles for the cause, artist Gowtham added,

People use plastic-bottles and throw them on the road carelessly. The idea to use these plastic bottles is to make people aware that they should not do this. Moreover, during this crucial time of coronavirus, people should take extra precautions and not dump the used plastic bottles carelessly.

Earlier, the artist had come-up with a COVID-19 helmet that was given to a police officer in the city to stop people at the checkpoint who were caught breaking coronavirus rules.

B.Gowtham adds,

We have government orders not to come out, but still, we were seeing people roaming here and there without proper safety equipment, without masks. I decided to help the frontline workers and came up with the COVID-19 helmet. The idea was to alarm people and tell them about the seriousness of the pandemic.
