16 People Who Really Don’t Want to Catch the #Coronavirus With Their DIY Masks

Scaremongering brings out the crazies!

Unless you’ve been in a coma for the last few months then you will have certainly heard of the Coronavirus. 

It doesn’t help that the media is scaring up a pandemic frenzy and making us think we’ll soon be living in a post-apocalyptic world like something out of the ‘The Walking Dead‘. People end up panic buying which has lead to a huge shortage of face masks (or hand sanitizers, dried pasta or toilet roll!)

It was only a matter of time before the ‘crazy people‘ took it upon themselves to protect themselves with their own DIY masks. From plastic bottles and shopping bags to fruit and sanitary towels, people are thinking of all kinds of ways to keep that virus at bay!

German-Namibian artist  Siedentopf, who is based in London, has created a series of DIY masks using everyday objects titled ‘”How to Survive A Deadly Global Virus”. You can see some of the images below mixed in with actual real home-made masks that people have been sporting around the world.
