Medical college walls painted with messages for COVID-19 awareness
JODHPUR [Maha Media]: 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.
