Medical clinics are overpowered with the devastating heap of COVID-19 cases and are experiencing deficiencies of individual defensive gear (Personal Protective Equipment) for care suppliers. More than 67,000 Indians have affected with COVID-19 till date, out of which 20,917 have been recovered with more than 2,206 of them are died. 22,171 cases overview from Maharashtra state alone out of which 832 have lost their life and remaining are under treatment and sent for quarantine (Figure 1). Since late-April, either by choice or in response to shelter-in-place orders, most Indians have been staying home and limiting non-essential travel and industrial and business activity has slowed to a crawl. In a thick urban territory, most occupants have no entrance to private open-air space and depend on open parks for work out, the emotional well-being help that originates from an association with nature and outside air. Scrupulous city occupants presently contemplate how to keep up safe social separation while imparting restricted outside space to other people. Official proposals by the WHO have combined on 6 ft of separation as the standard of thumb [1] for maintaining a strategic distance from the trading of possibly infective respiratory beads and vaporizers, however these suggestions were conceived based on perceptions made during the 1930s for medical clinic environments [2].
