Hyderabad: Sudha Cars Museum has added one more gem to its collection, the ‘Corona virus car'. Created by the museum owner, K. Sudhakar, the car will be inaugurated by Telangana chief secretary Somesh Kumar.
Mr Sudhakar, who has made many wacky cars, came up with this idea after the Corona virus outbreak in the state. The single-seater car, with a 100cc engine, can touch a maximum speed of 40 kmph, has six wheels, and a fiber body.
This is not the first time Mr Sudhakar has come up with a unique idea. Earlier, he has designed Not to cage birds - Cage car, Aids awareness - Condom bike, Stop smoking cigarette bike, and Safety helmet car.
Speaking to NewsMeter, he said, “Our museum has always made cars to give back to the society in our own way, for various occasions, and causes. Similarly, to bring awareness about Corona virus and to encourage people to stay at home, I made the Corona virus car. It's a clear message to not come out of our homes."
Once Mr Somesh Kumar inaugurates the care car on Wednesday, Mr Sudhakar said he might donate it to the police to create awareness.
Andhra’s COVID-19 model
Meanwhile, a youth from Kakinada has made a model of Corona virus at Amalapuram’s Clock Tower. A message states that it is a deadly disease and lists out precautions to be taken. He made the model in collaboration with the Amalapuram police. The cops, through the model, appealed to the public to stay indoors and adopt best practices to fight against Corona virus.
The display and the notice attracted passersby who were buying groceries near the Clock Tower. The police personnel’s unique idea to create awareness about COVID-19 was appreciated by many.
