A video of students shouting slogans against coronavirus in Assam has gone viral on social media. It appears that the group of students were returning after enjoying a game of football and while marching on a field, exclaimed, “Coronavirus, go back.”
The 29-second video has been made available online by a Twitter user Mrinal Talukdar. “The first mass protest against coronavirus,” an excerpt from Mrinal Talukdar’s caption reads while he also added that the “protest march” was held in Assam.
