Amid the rising number of COVID-19 cases, social media users can't stop laughing their hearts out at the circles that have been drawn at a railway station in West Bengal to maintain social distance.

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.

In the pictures that have gone viral on social media, the circles appear to be placed around poles, while others were drawn underneath staircases or for that matter even right next to railway booths.

Twitter user Anamika, while sharing pics of the oddly-placed circles, wrote, "So these guys made circles in some station in West Bengal at awkward places to maintain Social distancing."

In one of the pictures, one can see a man standing awkwardly in one of the marked circles. Since being shared, the pictures have left netizens amused and has collected over 8,000 likes and nearly 2,100 retweets.
