A video of two passengers taking extreme steps to avoid coronavirus infection has taken social media by storm.
Passengers aboard a flight in Australia wrapped in plastic wrap only show how scared people have been since the December outbreak of the virus, which has so far killed over 2,300 people.
The frightened passengers also used hoods and armholes, as well as face masks that have split many on social media.
A Twitter user Alyssa shared the video on Twitter with the title: "Currently behind me on the plane. If you are very afraid of #coronavirus # COVID2019."

In the shared video, the passenger appeared to be sleeping, wearing a pink plastic outfit and a printed face mask, and her male companion had clear white, gloves, and a face mask.
Her condition, though pitiful, has triggered reactions that are funny.
One user wrote: "Better to be on the safe side … if I have a choice, I don't want to die of suffocation …"
Another wrote: "He still breathes the same air as everyone else on the plane."
In one post it said: "Unfortunately the virus sticks to the plastic, if you take it off you come into contact. I just think that will happen."
One user remarked, "Maybe they know something the rest of the world doesn't know. I hope he's okay with all the plastic. I don't want him to die of suffocation."
Australia has confirmed 15 cases of the virus, all with a "direct or indirect link" to Wuhan City in the center of the outbreak.
