Over the fears of coronavirus outbreak, a video of a man using 'leg shake' to greet friends instead of a handshake has surfaced online. In the video, one can see a masked man come out of a vehicle and one of his friends step forward to greet him with a handshake, however, he turns him down, and instead greets him with a 'leg shake'. The man even goes on to greet all his other friends in the same manner, by tapping his foot against his friend's.
The video shared on Twitter has already garnered approximately 1.8 million views. It has also received 36,000 likes with several comments. While some netizens appreciated the man for his creativity, several also pitched alternative ways to greet each other without the risk of contracting the deadly virus.

You put your right foot in.— DaphneDoGood (@DaphneDoGood1) February 28, 2020
You put your right foot out.
You put your right foot in and you shake it all about.
This is what we do in our part of the world... namaste! pic.twitter.com/TCJTJpW23k— rupa joshi (@rupajoshi) February 29, 2020
Indian Namaste 🙏 is easier and better— Saurabh Jain (@skjsaurabh) March 1, 2020
That's a good idea. Or bowing. I'd prefer either to shaking hands. Shaking hands spreads germs anyway, never mind the #coronavirus— 💖 Little Ms Lesbian ⚢ 💖 (@NorthForBritain) February 29, 2020
