  • A drunk guy in Belgium has been filmed by a fellow train passenger.
  • The said man licked his fingers and wiped it on a handrail.
  • He has since been arrested by the authorities.

Amid the growing number of confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) cases across the world, a strange report from Belgium tells us about a man who deliberately licked his fingers and then rubbed it on a handrail, as if attempting to spread the virus to others.

The incident happened on a subway in Brussels, reports said. The unnamed passenger has since gotten in trouble with the authorities because of the stunt.

One of the commuters caught everything on film and shared the footage on social media. On the said video, the man can be seen pulling down his face mask and then placing his hand in his mouth before holding the pole.

The uploaded wrote on the caption:

“Watch what this son of a b**** does to the handrails on public transport. Don’t touch the handrails.”

In a Twitter post, the Brussels Intercommunal Transport Company eventually confirmed the incident and said that the man has since been “arrested by the police and our security service.” They also mentioned that the man was actually “intoxicated.”

Meanwhile, the train had to be withdrawn to undergo thorough sanitation.

As of this writing, Belgium already has 689 confirmed cases of coronavirus. They have also reported 4 deaths from the disease.

In March 12, 2020, the Belgian National Security Council has placed the entire country under a state of emergency. This means “all recreational and sporting events will be cancelled or postponed,” reported Euractiv. Bars, cafes, discos, and restaurants have been ordered to close until April 3. On the other hand, stores offering necessary commodities such as medicine and food will remain operational.

The World Health Organization has already declared the coronavirus as a pandemic after it has reached all continents, except Antarctica, around the world.
