Abstract : On the 11th of March 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) affirmed COVID-19, a pandemic, in response to more than 1,00,000 confirmed cases globally in more than 100 nations and the persistent danger of spreading further. Presently, there's no remedy or vaccine for COVID-19. The only way to curb its menace is taking precautionary measures, as advised by the health experts. Social distancing, that is maintaining a minimum distance of 1 to 1.5 meter between two individuals, is one of the foremost proactive measures advised by WHO. This paper presents a smart wearable device, Suraksha, that can be worn while travelling outside and will help maintain social distancing. The user will be able to rely on this device's alerting mechanism without having to constantly worry about their surroundings. It is a simple device which is easy to use and is built using basic electronic components. The device is also capable of integrating with the health applications over Bluetooth and support contact tracing.
