Man goes to market in Spiderman costume for 'full protection' against COVID-19

A face mask was apparently not enough!

A man was spotted wearing a Spiderman costume as he went to the market in Sampaloc, Manila amid the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) threat.

Instead of just wearing a face mask, Jon Gani decided to go out in "full gear" as a means to protect himself from the virus.

According to his wife, Jean, Jon went out wearing the costume for fun since he also happened to be a cosplayer.

After coming home from the market, Jean assured the public that they properly disinfected the costume.

Just this week, the entire Luzon has been under enhanced community quarantine until April 13, which includes suspension of classes for all levels and strict home quarantine, to curb the spread COVID-19.

The Philippines, under a state of calamity since Monday, has 217 confirmed cases and 17 deaths due to COVID-19 as of Thursday. --Kaela Malig/MGP, GMA News
