Governments around the world have put regulations in place to slow the spread of COVID-19, but lots of people are still refusing to follow the guidelines and laws. Now, one cop in India has gone the extra mile to scare people into staying home.
Rajesh Babu — a police officer in India’s state of Tamil Nadu — is on the job while the country lives through a 21-day lockdown. As people in the country continue to take unnecessary trips out of their home, Babu has been stopping people in their vehicles to remind them of the importance of staying home right now… and he’s doing it while wearing this:
An artist named Gowtham created the helmet for Babu — it’s a one-of-a-kind piece of equipment.
The helmet, which represents the shape of the rapidly spreading virus, is certainly a bit creepy and ominous. Hopefully, seeing a police officer with a giant virus for a head will be enough to convince people to stay home instead of meeting up for get-togethers or visiting crowded places.
