Not scared about COVID-19, a woman getting interviewed about using masks (she’s not using any) gets kissed by a stranger – and she actually liked it! The guy was also quite excited about the moment, saying that whether any of them had the virus does not matter because the kiss was “worth it!”
Wearing Masks Against COVID-19
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic raging across the world, claiming nearly 340k lives and affecting over 5.21 million who tested positive, there are still many who think that the whole thing is a conspiracy. Others think that a mask is not important because they also want to get the virus for ‘herd immunity’.
Because a vaccine and cure are still not available, many think that it would be a good idea to simply get the virus so they no longer have to worry about it in the future. But COVID-19 is unlike other virus conditions and it is quite severe! Thus, governments around the world still advocate, even order, wearing masks.
Many people defy the order, saying that they have the right to choose whether they should wear a mask or not. Others say that because it is their body, wearing a mask or not should also be their choice.
One woman who wasn’t wearing a mask gets interviewed by a news channel about her beliefs regarding masks and COVID-19 at Trinity Bellwoods Park in Toronto, Canada. Out of the blue, a guy interrupted the interview to give her a passionate kiss that lasted for a few seconds.
Everyone was shocked, including the field reporter and the cameraman; yet the woman was simply excited about the whole thing and would keep signaling the guy to call/text her later. Sigh.
The news team later approached the guy, asking why he did that and if he was concerned at all that either of them had the virus, yet he was just so happy about it and said the kiss was “worth it”.
The news channel angered netizens for airing the clip, saying that they appeared to be condoning the reckless behavior of these two young people. Watch it here:

Why Wearing Masks is Important?
Wearing a mask is not a guarantee that you won’t get infected by a virus such as the one that causes COVID-19. However, wearing a mask is still a good way to stop the spread of infection, particularly from an infected person to another.
While masks don’t always protect the wearer, particularly cloth masks, you can improve safety by washing your hands frequently with soap and water or using alcohol.
