Have you ever thought of building a statue to ward off dangerous diseases?

As we all know, Japan is very famous for its technological advancement. In fact, before this, the country even managed to control the first wave of Covid-19 despite not having a movement control order, forcing their businesses to close down and limited testing.

Unfortunately, the country is currently facing a sudden resurgence of Covid-19 cases that are getting higher day by day. Prime Minister, Yoshihide Suga had to even declare a state of emergency in Tokyo, Saitama, Chiba, and Kanagawa provinces.

Due to concern, villagers in Chikuzen, Fukuoka, Japan have decided to build a giant gorilla statue to repel and ward away the Covid-19 virus, as reported by the Daily Star.

The statue, which stands at an impressive 23 feet, is made of steel and straw.

To make it look even more life-like, the gorilla statue has a pair of eyes that glow red in the night. It is known as the ‘Giant Straw Scarecrow Gorilla: Proud Gorilla 2020’.

The gorilla statue was completed in December last year and is set to remain in the village until the end of this month. It has become a tourist attraction that brings in many visitors to the village.

The locals decided to build the statue to curb this virus from spreading in the community.

The villagers chose the Gorilla as “the likeness of a gorilla was chosen as a symbol of power and strength in the face of the prolonged coronavirus pandemic.”
