Panaji, Dec 23 (IANS) Santa Claus has popped up in North Goa's Pernem village with a mission to stop the spread of Covid-19 this year.
Dressed as Santa Claus, police personnel attached to the Pernem police station distributed masks to the people in a bid to create awareness about Covid-19 and spread the message of social distancing.
"Pernem police station staff conducted an awareness drive among the local public regarding the do's and dont's of Covid-19 ahead of Christmas. The police staff dressed as Santa Claus gifted chocolates, informative pamphlets and masks to the public who were found not wearing masks," inspector in-charge of the Pernem police station, Jivba Dalvi, told IANS.
