With coronavirus cases escalating all across the globe, people are getting back to basics in order to avoid contraction. For example, people all over are washing their hands in regular intervals, wearing face masks and maintaining social distancing to avoid the coronavirus spread. And as human beings, we expect this sudden change in behaviour, however, what we don't expect is for an animal to show a similar kind of behaviour.
Recently, a video went viral on social media, where a raccoon was seen demonstrating how to wash hands to avoid virus contraction. The video was shared by a Twitter user who goes by the name Daryl Dust. The video has garnered more than 2,87,000 views in just 8 hours and has received over 10,000 likes. The 38-second long clip has used a raccoon to underline the importance of washing hands in these hard times.
