The world is fighting with the terrifying coronavirus outbreak since January. New coronavirus cases are popping out every day making more people infected with the COVID-19. To keep themselves safe in this outbreak, people are putting masks and applying sanitizers.

Seems like God is also scared of this rapidly spreading virus. Yes! in Varanasi the priests are putting masks on the idols.

Anand Pandey, a priest from Varanasi Temple Said:

“Coronavirus has spread across the country. We have put a mask on Lord Vishwanath to raise awareness about coronavirus. Just like we put clothes on the idols when it is cold and put ACs or fans when it’s hot, we have put masks on the deities,” 

The priests are also creating awareness regarding the virus and asking the devotees not to touch the idols to avoid the virus spread.

“We are urging people not to touch the idols to prevent the spread of the virus. If people touch the idol, the virus will spread and more people will get infected” 

The devotees coming to worship are also wearing a mask as a preventive measure.
