The spread of the coronavirus has caused many cities to go on lockdown. However, certain countries and continents have seen wider spreads in the virus because people are defying coronavirus quarantine measures.
India recently went into lockdown, and have reportedly found police taking extreme measurements to try and limit the spread of the virus, particularly in the form of using force against people who are violating the coronavirus lockdown. Footage that surfaced showed police in India wearing surgical masks, and hitting people with batons who they stopped for being out in public.
