In an attempt to avoid coronavirus then it would appear that some people are putting large Tupperware boxes over their heads before getting on public transport.
In a way, I admire their ability not to care what other people think; regardless of how ‘silly’ they might look.
The image below was uploaded to social media by Phil Rubery and showed a passenger on the London Underground with a massive plastic box over her head.
We have seen images before from other parts of the world with people walking around with big boxes on their heads, but this trend now seems to be picking up popularity in the UK.
In our ‘DailyDits’ nerve centre, we have several news channels playing in the background 24/7, and we also have been listening to and reading all of the advice being given by the various health authorities.
As yet, we have not heard anyone say that Tupperware boxes can prevent you from getting coronavirus if you put one on your head.
Of course, that is not to say that they won’t protect you…
The advice being given is to wash your hands regularly and, if you are not near a sink, then to keep some hand sanitiser with you.
If you have used public transport or have been in high-density public areas, then do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth with your hands until you have had a chance to wash your hands.
If you cough or sneeze, then ‘catch it’ in a tissue and then throw the tissue into a bin.
If you don’t have a tissue, then ‘catch it’ by covering your nose and mouth with your arm (assuming you are wearing a long sleeve top).
