Amidst the coronavirus pandemic, tensions are at an all-time high. The general public is on edge and hygiene standards have surely risen worldwide. The very sound of a cough could draw panic in a public place.
The UK has been officially put on lockdown, with other countries like the United States and Canada slowly following suit. It could be a long few weeks, even months before we're able to continue on with our pre-COVID-19 lives.
Despite the quarantine, essential businesses like grocery stores will stay open to supply the public with the necessities to stay isolated at home for the foreseeable future. While most are respecting the guidelines put in place by their local government, some seem to not really care for the measures put in place to reduce the risk of spreading the disease.
And then there are people who have absolutely no regard for public health and safety - the woman in this video, for example.
In the now-viral video taking place in a Walmart in California, a woman can be seen coughing and spitting on an employee after being asked to leave the store.
Reportedly, the woman in question became 'aggressive' after she was told she had not paid the entirety of her bill. Rather than paying, putting some of the groceries away or leaving the store, she decided to verbally harass the employees and threatened to call 911. When the employee had had enough and started moving her groceries, she proceeded to cough and spit at him.
The employee then called the police, who reportedly escorted the woman out of the store.
Please don't be like this woman.
