Health advisor asks people to not touch face, then she licks her finger

One of the most common habits that people have is probably licking their fingers before flipping a page. But that is exactly what the health officials are advising against at the moment due to coronavirus.

An ironic video of Dr Sara Cody, the director of the Santa Clara County Public Health Department, licking her finger right after telling people to not touch their face, eyes and nose, has gone viral.

In the video, the director of California county health department can be heard saying, “Today, start working on not touching your face, because one main way viruses spread, is when you touch your own mouth, nose or eyes.”

And right after that, she licked her finger before flipping the page, giving the internet an incredibly hilarious moment.

After the video was shared online, it went viral and people couldn’t stop laughing. One user wrote, “Was it intentional?” it was later taken down on Instagram.
