The COVID-19 pandemic has become a major threat to the global health and economy sector. The full impact of this virus on human health is still unknown. Many organisations and universities around the world are trying to find a vaccine for this deadly disease. But yet no one has succeeded in finding a proper working cure against this SARS-CoV-2 virus which causes COVID-19. However face masks combined with other preventive measures, such as social distancing and frequent hand washing can reduce the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus up to a certain extent. But in a developing country like India due to lack of consciousness and knowledge, people mostly ignore these measures. This pandemic can not be controlled by the government alone. Due to lack of clarity people are still unaware of the facts that the spread of this deadly disease can be controlled by taking certain measures and precautions. So we have designed a device which can detect people without mask and people not following Social Distancing rules at public places.
