Puri, Feb 21: In view of the number of Covid-19 positive cases surging in Maharashtra and a few other States in the country, internationally-acclaimed sand artist Padma Shri Sudarsan Pattnaik on Monday created an art on the golden beach of Puri to spread messages among people to stay alert against the pandemic and follow all Covid safety norms.
The sand art depicted a man using mark, two people maintaining a distance of 6 feet between them, a Covid figure and a written phrase of “Stay Alert”.
“Covid infection is seen rising in a few States of our country. We need to remain alert. I again and again request all to use mask, maintain social distance of 6 ft and follow all Covid 19 safety norms laid down by Government. We must not neglect,” said Pattnaik.
