You would be surprised to know that in hard times of Coronavirus pandemic people have devise means of covering their faces, but in this case what is use is bizzare.
Report convened has it that, a man boarded a bus using a snake as a face covering. The commuter and his reptilian mask, which was wrapped around his neck and mouth, were seen on a bus from Swinton to Manchester on Monday.
One passenger said she thought the passenger was wearing a “funky mask” until she spotted it slithering over handrails.
Transport bosses in Greater Manchester confirmed a snake was not a valid face covering.
The witness, who asked to remain anonymous, said she found the incident “really funny”, adding the animal did not seem to be bothering any of her fellow passengers.
A Transport for Greater Manchester spokesperson said: “Government guidance clearly states that this needn’t be a surgical mask and that passengers can make their own or wear something suitable, such as a scarf or bandana.
“While there is a small degree of interpretation that can be applied to this, we do not believe it extends to the use of snakeskin – especially when still attached to the snake.”
