While health organizations are trying their best to explain anti-Coronavirus measures as thoroughly as possible, some people continue to miss the point.
A video, initially uploaded to TikTok, has gone viral from the U.S. state of Kentucky. It was discreetly filmed by Joe Samaan, a young male clerk at an SJ Food Mart in Lexington.
“You all need to see this,” he says into the camera, before turning his phone to the approaching customer. It is a woman wearing a face mask, with a hole neatly cut out right in the middle, leaving her nostrils and mouth exposed.
She quickly pays for gas, and the clerk asks where did she get her mask.
“Well (…) this makes it a lot easier to breathe,” the woman responds.
On TikTok, the original video got almost 900 thousand likes so far and was shared almost 160 thousand times. The woman’s identity is unknown.
