Actor Xian Lim was lectured and at the same time criticized for smelling items at the supermarket, with his face mask not properly worn.
Earlier, the 30-year-old actor took to the image-sharing site, Instagram wherein he posted a video of himself while shopping at a supermarket.
But his video gained a bitter-sweet taste from the netizens.
He was lectured for not properly wearing his face mask and for smelling food items with the “risk of inhaling the virus.”
According to the netizen, grocery items stacked on supermarket shelves are “not being sanitized regularly.”
That is, if the virus were exposed to the shelf, the actor could immediately inhale the virus.
Another netizen warned that a family member died of COVID-19 after contracting the virus “from doing groceries.”
Xian has been told by other Instagram followers to make sure the mask covers his nose and mouth.
Xian did not respond to anyone else commenting on his video.
According to PEP.ph, the Department of Health (DOH) has previously said wearing a face mask is one of the most effective ways to protect itself against COVID-19.
Physical distancing and physical fitness are also effective protection against the pandemic.
In fact, everyone is required to wear a face mask when leaving the house.
This is in accordance with the guidelines of the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) on the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases.
As of June 29, 36,438 cases of COVID-19 in the Philippines have been recorded, according to the DOH.
Nearly ten thousand, or 9,956 of this number have recovered, while 1,255 died.
