A young man has been spotted in town using a black polythene bag in place of a nose mask with the notion it would protect him from the novel coronavirus.
The gentleman was sighted by the YEN.com.gh video team who decided to enquire what his reasons were for choosing to go against the norm.
According to him, the normal nose mask usually gets attached to his face, making it difficult for him to feel comfortable and breathe freely.
Watch the full video below:
"As for the polythene bag, it has a lot of space around it for air to get access to my nostrils and it gives me enough comfort unlike the ordinary face mask", he said.
It should be stated, however, that using polythene bags does not have any medical or scientific backing of being able to protect anyone against COVID-19.
Currently, Ghana has a total of 3,613 active cases of the novel coronavirus with 372 people having succumbed to it thus far, according to the Ghana Health Service.
