He he! Some hilarious distancing markers on an Indian Railway station. An Eastern Railway EMU local train can be seen in the background in one of the photographs! #COVIDIDIOTS #Covid_19 #COVID19India pic.twitter.com/lfq5X6c9b0— Rajendra B. Aklekar (@rajtoday) September 10, 2020
While maintaining social distance and wearing face masks has become mandatory, these circles marked to maintain social distance at a railway station appear to be quite oddly placed, thus making it the 'talking point' among netizens.
