The gesture is borrowed from regular protests which are generally held against a person or a group of persons.

Two days ago, people of Mumbai burnt effigies of coronavirus on the occasion of Holika Dahan. Nobody knows how its effigy should be. So there were various kinds of effigies — one blue, one white, all of which went up to the flames.
We are not sure whether all these symbolic gestures are yielding results. With at least 14 fresh cases coming from Kerala, Maharashtra and Karnataka on Tuesday, the total number of people who have tested positive for the deadly coronavirus has gone up to 60. Stepping up the measures to curtail a further spread, the Union Health Ministry has asked people to avoid any non-essential travels from China, Italy, Republic of Korea, Japan, France, Spain and Germany.
