“Coronavirus has spread across the country. We have put a mask on Lord Vishwanath to raise awareness about coronavirus. Just like we put clothes on the idols when it is cold and put ACs or fans when it’s hot, we have put masks on the deities,” temple priest Krishna Anand Pandey said on Monday.

The priest also urged people to not touch the idols to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

“We are urging people not to touch the idols to prevent the spread of the virus. If people touch the idol, the virus will spread and more people will get infected,” he added.

The priest and devotees at the temple were seen offering prayers wearing face masks.
