The novel coronavirus lockdown has brought life to a standstill. Amid this, a shocking incident of blatant ignorance has come to light.
As per one ABP report, a Tik Tok user named Samir Khan, who earlier made a video mocking the coronavirus masks, has now tested positive for the coronavirus.
Samir, who hails from Madhya Pradesh’s Sagar district, had earlier uploaded a video in which he can be heard saying that he does not trust a piece of cloth, rather he trusts the lord almighty - Allah to his group of friends.
The ABP report further shows him lying on the bed due to the infection. In a new video, he seems to have changed his tone. He says, “Please support me friends. I won’t be able to make more videos because the doctors aren’t letting me. Please pray for me.”
As per a Dainik Bhaskar report, this man also distributed vegetables to the poor during the lockdown. Additionally, he has uploaded multiple videos on Tik Tok from different parts of the city.
The administration is trying to map his movement in the past 10 days. They have also directed sanitising all the places visited by him, and asked his relatives and family members to self-quarantine themselves.
