The current pandemic situation has persuaded people to maintain sanitation and hygiene both indoors and outdoors. To prevent the spread of the deadly COVID-19 virus, the world health organization recommended that people not leave the house without wearing a mask and to always carry hand sanitizer. It is advised to also maintain social distancing by standing six feet apart from another person. Even the government had issued strict laws and fines against citizens who refused to wear masks and maintain social distancing. With death rates rising and businesses incurring substantial financial losses due to nationwide lock downs, it should not come as a surprise that hygiene regulations are being strictly implemented. Around twenty percent of the total Covid-19 cases have been proven asymptomatic. These asymptomatic cases have produced greater fear and panic in human minds, and they have accordingly forced them to abide by sanitation laws.
