Infected Chinese citizens are spitting on doctors and some are spitting on lift buttons. The idea is to spread the virus to those not infected.
This could be one reason why the virus is spreading so fast and China is finding it difficult to contain.
Whether it is an anti-communist party act, or as The Sun UK is saying, a ‘Zombie’ act by the infected? We could not find more explanation for this at the time of publishing this incredible story!
But the acts seem deliberate and an attempt to spread the deadly bug.
As bizarre as it seems, a teacher trapped in Wuhan says she saw video footage of a man spitting on lift buttons.
The South African then chillingly added: “I’ve heard shocking stories about infected people going out of their way to contaminate others by taking off their masks and spitting in doctors’ faces.
“I saw one video of a man spitting on all of the buttons in an apartment elevator.”
Some are now calling Wuhan the zombieland because of these spitting actions by infected people.
The story was shared by Jessika Bailing, 23, who says she left her flat only twice since the outbreak.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk she says: “We are all so scared to go outside, I avoided it for as long as I could.
“I went to do a supplies run, it was so terrifying. I covered myself from head-to-toe with gloves on my hands, glasses to cover my eyes and of course, my mask.”
The Sun says there have been no official reports of people deliberately spreading the disease from the Chinese authorities.
However, desperate air passengers have been spotted wearing everything from plastic bottles to motorbike helmets in a bid to protect themselves from the deadly coronavirus.
Though this may not be related to the people spitting on others to spread the virus, it shows the intensity of the situation.
People are desperate in China. Photos of terrified travellers are shared on social media showing people covering themselves with plastic sheets.
Some have plastic bottles on their head. The idea is to prevent contraction of the virus.
Plastic bags are also used to protect oneself at an airport as reported by The Sun UK
A mother and child are also seen on the Hong Kong Metro system wearing makeshift “shields” fashioned from cut plastic bottles.
