Face masks are in severe shortage especially in China, which has been hit the hardest by the new coronavirus. Demand simply cannot keep up with supply as companies scramble to produce masks but still, panic-buying has resulted in many people not being able to get the necessary protection.
People have started getting creative with their protective gear and not long ago, a Chinese woman surnamed He went viral after she showed up at the hospital with very unique protection. According to SCMP, she showed up at the hospital to collect medicine for her family members in a full-body giraffe costume to avoid catching Covid-19.
She said that she had no choice but to buy two full-body costumes online after she couldn’t get any face masks. She was spotted while visiting a hospital in Luzhou, a city of Sichuan Province in south-western China. The costume, which covers her from head to toe is puffed-up and has a small window of clear plastic film for her to see through.
He had also bought another alien costume along with the giraffe outfit to try and protect herself. Her old masks had expired and she couldn’t buy any new ones. He said she was the healthiest person in her family so she agreed to run errands such as grocery shopping as she didn’t want her parents to catch the virus.
On that day, she had visited the hospital as her father was a regular patient at the hospital’s department of respiration and needed his medicine. She also asked his doctor to conduct a virtual consultation with him through a webcam.
However, authorities said that costumes such as the one He wore are unable to protect people from infection and need to be disinfected after use. Chinese medics have also advised people to change masks regularly as bacteria can grow if masks are reused. Medical staff are asked to use a new one every six hours.
