- Two flight passengers were captured on video wearing full protective gear amid coronavirus fears.
- In addition to face masks, the unidentified germaphobes were decked in plastic outfits, which contained holes for their arms and faces.
- The virus, officially known as COVID-19, has infected more than 75,000 people around the world and killed more than 2,000.
As the coronavirus outbreak continues to spread to more and more travelers, two passengers wore full protective gear in a Jetstar flight in Australia.
In addition to face masks, the unidentified germaphobes were decked in plastic outfits, which contained holes for their arms and faces.
A fellow passenger on the Hamilton Island-bound flight, Alyssa, captured footage of the couple and shared in on Twitter, where it has since been viewed more than 95,000 times.
“Currently behind me on the plane. When you super scared of #coronavirus #COVID2019,” the Twitter post read.
The deadly epidemic first broke out in December in the city of Wuhan, located in the Hubei province of China.
The virus, officially known as COVID-19, is believed to have originated from animals sold in a market in Wuhan. In January, it was confirmed that the virus could be spread through human-to-human contact.
The virus quickly started spreading to several countries after travelers returned home from a trip to China.
The virus has since infected more than 75,000 people around the world and killed more than 2,000. Outside China, cases have been reported across Asia, Australia, the United States, Canada, Europe, Russia, and even Egypt in Africa.
So far, 15 cases of coronavirus have been reported in Australia since the outbreak.
While the World Health Organization (WHO) “does not recommend any specific health measures for travelers,” these two passengers went above and beyond to protect themselves from contracting the disease.
