The entire world is on high alert due to the coronavirus pandemic, which has so far claimed over forty thousand lives to date while leaving millions affected. With social distancing and self-isolation being advocated by governments and medical officials across the globe, people have been asked to follow standard procedures and remain inside their homes. Likewise, with the ongoing lockdown proposed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi well in its second now in India, effective measures by state and local administrative officers are being adopted owing to the intensity of the COVID-19 outbreak. That said, Tiruppur District Collector, Vijayakarthikeyan K, released a video showing how a disinfection tunnel has been put up with plans to upscale it to other places across Tamil Nadu. Check out the video below:

With many praising this latest effort, actor and producer Sivakarthikeyan too appreciated Vijayakarthikeyan for this much-needed and timely effort, which was met with a response by the Tiruppur Collector who referred to a dialogue from the hit film, Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam. The dialogue being, "You be whoever you are and be what you want to be, but just stay at a distance away from me," left Sivakarthikeyan surprised, who in turn extended his gratitude to director Ponram of Seema Raja fame for the lines. Check out their conversation in the tweets below:
