Man's 'genius' way of protecting himself during coronavirus pandemic

A man has been applauded online for his “genius” method of protecting himself from coronavirus while shopping at a supermarket.

The man, who has not been named, was filmed encased in a full-length plastic bag as he browses the aisles inside a store in Kharkiv, eastern Ukraine.

In the video he can be seen pushing a trolley and looking at products but does not appear to have holes in the bag to pick items up.

The plastic bag is tied up above his head with what appears to be a rope.

Viewers loved the clip, with some questioning how he was going to try to protect himself from the virus as he had to open the bag each time he wanted to pick up goods.

“I have one single question: where the hell did he get such a big condom to put on,” one commenter said online.

“This guy is pure genius!” another person said.
