Brits seen wearing boxes and gas masks on public transport due to Coronavirus

Commuters have been seen wearing plastic bags, boxes and gas masks to protect themselves against Coronavirus.

Posted on social media, one commuter was pictured in a gas mask at Milton Keynes station, while Tube passengers have also followed suit.

A woman was snapped today with a plastic storage container over her head as she rode a busy bus.

But others have taken a creative approach to protecting themselves against the disease – including wearing Tesco bags on their heads.

Other commuters were pictured flicking through the morning newspaper while wearing rubber gloves.

In the rush to protect themselves when the Coronavirus first hit the country, shoppers stripped supermarket shelves of face masks.

But experts have previously said that face masks do little in the way of protection, especially if they’re not worn properly.
