Wishing netizens on the occasion of Harry Potter Day, the Delhi Police department shared a meme featuring characters from J K Rowling's fantasy series in order to urge people to follow Covid-19 protocols.
They took to their Twitter handle and wrote, "There is a surge in #COVID19 cases. Delhi Police urges everyone to mask up, maintain social distancing & avoid crowds. Let's work together to keep Delhi safe and win this battle just like #HarryPotter defeated Voldemort. Happy #HarryPotterDay!"
The objective of this social media post was to spread awareness and urge citizens of the national capital to follow all the Covid-19 protocols and keep Delhi safe, amid increasing cases.
The meme shared by the Delhi Police department featured a conversation between two vital characters of the series, Professor Albus Dumbledore and Professor Severus Snape.
In the meme, Snape looked nervous as he said, "Headmaster, I'm afraid Covid-19 has returned, time to mask up." Professor Dumbledore then asks him, "Are you serious?" In response to this Snape quips, "No' I'm Severus".
