Amid the fear and cases of the novel coronavirus pandemic that have continued to climb at a rapid pace, people all around the globe have resorted to isolate themselves at their homes. Following strict lockdown conditions, people have time and again come around with innovative and entertaining ideas to keep their spirits high, during this tough phase. A man, however, came around with a big sacrifice on social media. In a video that has been doing rounds on the internet, a man sacrificed his beard in order to be able to wear a mask.

Amazing transformation

In the 1 minute and 57 seconds long video, that was posted on Reddit, a man is being seen chopping off his entire beard for the sake of the precautions that have been made mandatory for everyone worldwide. Since the man was unable to wear a mask because of his beard, he got entirely rid of it, following the mandatory precautions of wearing a mask or respiratory item. Recording the entire transformation on his own, the man begins with entering his washroom and looking at his razor and then the mirror.
