Here is a look at some of the reactions:
Varanasi Police have also been using their Twitter handle to debunk fake news that is being spread online. The police department more than often calls out individuals who share wrong information on the internet. A personnel in an interview with news agency ANI said that cases are being registered against such anti-social elements and adequate action will be taken against them, after a thorough investigation is carried out.
Police Commissioner of Varanasi, Satish Ganesh has also shared a graphic, through which he has urged people to wear a double mask. In the graphic, one can see a man sporting a surgical mask.
Earlier in the day, Mumbai Police had taken to Twitter to urge people to stay indoors till the time the pandemic does not subside. The team had used cards of iconic singers and bands to covey the important message.
