From the video, it seems that the sudden pandemic outbreak has not only created havoc in humans but even animals also. This beautiful creature showing off its skills of washing hands is sure to teach everyone a lesson.

In the 49-second long video, the teacher can be seen explaining the advantage of washing hands by using a dish of black pepper flakes floating in the water as a demo. The teacher in the video can be heard asking one of her students to dip her finger inside the black pepper water, which is representing a virus. The student then puts her finger in the water and observe that the black pepper has no effect by her unwashed hand and it sticks to her finger as well.
