Kolkata: Now the dreaded coronavirus has a sweet avatar. A famous Bengali sweet shop chain in Kolkata has come up with its new offerings — Corona Sweets- Corona Sandesh and Corona Cake — to spread awareness about the deadly Covid-19 disease declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation.
The sandesh and cake, both shaped like the novel coronavirus, are prominently displayed alongside other sweets in the retail chain’s outlets. But there is one important difference.
“Corona sandesh is not for sale. We are handing it and COVID Sweets out to all our customers for free as part of our social duty to make people aware about the dangerous virail infection,” said an official of Hindustan Sweets at its headquarters in south Kolkata’s Jadavpur.
