In an effort to take poignant steps to fight COVID-19, Leafberry, the only outdoor media owner of Ludhiana, decided to take it on themselves to spread public awareness. As a result, the company is using all its media formats of different sizes and nature for public messaging. The company has halted all its active branding campaigns. Currently, it is an active participant in rendering the state government its full support with all its available resources.
The OOH screens distinctly display the precautions and the dos and don’ts regarding the disease. Furthermore, the screens broadcast the messages of the importance of social distancing and proper hygiene in the regional language. This will help win the attention of maximum local audiences. Close to 95000 NRIs have returned to the state recently and among them, nearly 30000 are in quarantine. Leafberry, therefore, is leaving no stones unturned to reach out to each citizen of the city and the state to prevent the further spread of the disease.
Other than social messages and precautions, the media screens are also displaying helpline numbers to handle emergencies better. Shavinder Singh Sandhu, the director of Leafberry, is hopeful that their contribution towards this noble cause will bear fruit. He further said that the placement of display screens throughout Ludhiana in the Punjabi language will be more effective in connecting with people.
The state is experiencing a jump in COVID-19 cases every day. Hence, all kinds of preventive measures against the pandemic will help to collectively fight the infectious disease.
