The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared pandemic by the planet Health Organisation (WHO).
Originating in Wuhan, China, late last year, it’s spread round the globe, putting many vulnerable people in danger . With no known cure, many countries have taken increasingly extreme measures to halt its spread, including Italy, which is currently under a lockdown that would reportedly see those defying the measures charged with murder.
People are only allowed to go and get food,for family emergencies or for special jobs, and people who go outside are told to stay a distance of a minimum of three feet between themselves and the others.
One man has come up with a completely unique solution of maintaining the space – an enormous disk:
He is seen wearing the disk which ensures that he doesn’t inherit close contact with anyone else while grocery shopping at Testaccio market. The shopping was only possible, because he used a claw for picking up litter, this way he managed to grab whatever he wanted to buy.
The man filming the video asks him in Italian: “And would this be the security distance for?”
He replies: “For coronavirus!”
The man filming then bursts into laughing: “Wonderful. i can not cope!”
