Walls of medical college in Jodhpur painted with COVID-19 slogans to spread awareness
Slogans like 'It isn't just tobacco, spitting can also be injurious to health' and 'precaution is the ultimate treatment' were seen painted on the walls
Walls of a medical college in Jodhpur were painted on Saturday, under an initiative by the district administration, with slogans and precautionary measures to spread awareness regarding COVID-19.
"Besides spreading awareness, we also wish to pay homage to the frontline COVID-19 warriors. We hope to educate people about the safety measures they must undertake to live during this pandemic," said Manoj Kalla, in-charge of the paintwork for Jodhpur administration.
The work began with painting walls outside Jodhpur's Sampurnanand Medical College, he added, because thousands of people visit the area.
Slogans like 'It isn't just tobacco, spitting can also be injurious to health' and 'precaution is the ultimate treatment' were seen painted on the walls of the college along with caricatures depicting the same.
"Precaution is ultimately the best treatment against coronavirus, that's the message we want to spread among masses. We hope to educate people through these slogans and messages," said Dr Prakash Rajpurohit, District Collector.
