Some of them replied with their very own memes relevant to the COVID-19 crisis.

One of them posted a clip of Salman Khan’s fight scene with Shakti Kapoor in Andaz Apna Apna to promote social distancing.

Two users posted different clips of SRK to spread the message of avoiding handshakes.

Meanwhile, several other users appreciated the team handling the Mumbai Police Twitter account.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) and the US’ Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), wearing a mask can help contain the spread of the coronavirus-induced COVID-19. Hence, in Mumbai, wearing masks or covering the face whenever someone is outside their house has been made compulsory in Mumbai and the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation has said that people violating this rule will be arrested under Section 188 of Indian Penal Code (IPC), according to an IE report.
