The sudden rise of Covid-19 associated with Omicron BF.7 mutation, has induced people to take as many precautionary measures in order to avoid waiting in the queues at overcrowded hospitals. In light of it, a recent video has gone viral in the social media showing that Chinese people have turned to their own solutions in dealing with the Covid-19 outbreak.
The video displays a couple protecting themselves in a creative way from getting infected to Covid while purchasing vegetables at the market. It can be seen that the couple had wrapped themselves with a plastic wrap from top to bottom, which is supported by the man’s umbrella. The couple interacted with people while staying inside the improvised “shield” without initiating a direct contact.
The clip was shared on the official site of Twitter by People’s Daily China with the caption, “A Chinese couple takes self-protection to another level…”

A whole nother level…they should have had some sort of sleeve/arm attachment so that they don’t even have to lift it up to conduct transactions

it is being shown in the media as if an atmosphere of fear has been created and after watching this video of China, it does seem that everyone is marketing comfortably by wearing masks.
