As the nation enters into the eleventh day of a total lockdown to control spread of coronavirus COVID-19 and millions of people are staying indoors, there are many 'coronavirus warriors' who are working tirelessly to keep millions of India safe from the deadly virus. The 'coronavirus wrriors' including policemen, doctors, nurses, medical staff and other essential services providers are risking their lives only to protect the citizens of the country from coronavirus.
One such 'coronavirus warrior' is TI in Indore Police Nirmal Sriniwas. A photo of Sriniwas has gone viral on the Internet in which the policeman can be seen eating his food outside his home so that his kids remain safe from coronavirus. In the photo, Sriniwas' little daughter can be seen standing a few metres away from him longing to sit near his father but she cannot do this because she is following social distancing in order to curb the spread of coronavirus.
