About the Social distancing
- The game is a new online game launched for children to learn about how crucial social distancing is to deal with coronavirus infection.

Aim of the game
- The main objective of the game is to rescue around 7 billion people which the global population score.
- According to the researched conducted, the reports say that the game encourages positive behaviour in society, which can be helpful for people in real-world too.
- It is believed that the game teaches kids and adults to follow steps in a certain way in the game that automatically shifts to their real-life too.
- The creators of the game believe that if health authorities and schools use this game, they can easily encourage students to follow social distancing in real life.
- This needs players to control a particular avatar through a super busy street and then save lives by dodging cyclists, pedestrians, and people who are sneezing and all those surrounded by red zones.
- The players can gather masks and then drop those masks for medical staff to save more lives.
- The idea is to rescue as many lives as you can. When you continue to progress with the game, the score will shoot up to send a message that you are protecting yourself to protect many others.
Features of the game
- This game comprises playful touches and players can purchase groceries along with toilet rolls as they faced a shortage in supply during the lockdown.
