This man from Hyderabad has found a novel way to spread the message about this dangerous and life threatening virus
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has taken the world by storm. There is a complete lockdown in India till 14th April and likely to be extended in some states, considering its ever increasing numbers of affected persons. However, not everyone has realized the dangers of contacting this virus. The stern warning to stay indoors has been looked upon lightly.
Sudhakar Yadav of Hyderabad and the owner of Sudha Cars Museum in the city, has devised a novel way to make people aware of this dreaded virus. He has created a new coronavirus shaped car and the purpose is to spread awareness about this pandemic. This single seater vehicle is shaped like the corona virus.
The car is in a round shape and is painted in a green in colour with black dots with ‘Sudha car’ printed at the rear. This four wheeler, single seater car was made in 10 days and is made out of flexible fibre plastic. Sudhakar has fitted it with a 1000cc motorcycle engine which allows the car to travel upto 40 kms.

The coronavirus car has obviously attracted some attention as it has been doing the rounds in a bid to spread awareness and make people understand the importance of the lockdown and the urgent need to stay indoors.
Once Sudhakar has reached out to the public and done his bit to spread awareness, he plans on donating the vehicle to the Hyderabad Police to carry on with this awareness program. He has also promised to build one or two more such cars if the authorities ask him to do so.
This is not the first time that Sudhakar has devised something unique. He is a Guinness World Record holder for building the World’s largest tricycle which was 37 feet long. He has also built a cage shaped car to spread awareness about keeping animals in captivity, a condom-shaped bike for World AIDS Day.
He also has a helmet shaped vehicle to highlight the importance of road safety and vehicle shaped like a cigarette butt to spread awareness to quit smoking. All these vehicles are parked at the Sudha Cars Museum near Nehru Zoological Park in Hyderabad. This museum was started in the year 2000 and has over 200 cars shaped like burgers, handbags, stilettos, tea cups, helmets and basketballs.
