Coronavirus is continuing its spread across the world. Many organisations have been using various platforms to spread awareness among the people. Earlier, the Mumbai Police had used Sarabhai vs Sarabhai’s Rosesh Sarabhai’s poem and urged people to stay at home. Now, Nagpur police has shared Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah‘s Jethalal’s meme and urged people to wear masks.
In the picture, Jethalal is seen wearing a mask. The advisory in the meme reads, “Mask Pehen Ne Mein Kya Tapleek Hai Aapko (What issue do you have in wearing a mask)?”
Nagpur City Police shared the meme and captioned it, “Whether you are going to gokuldham society or gada electronics, please wear a Mask wherever you go.#NagpurPolice.”
