TikTok video of masked goats goes viral

In a viral video on TikTok, a number of goats can be seen wearing makeshift net-masks while a song on coronavirus in Hindi plays in the background and prancing around.

While mask-wearing humans have become a common sight across the world today, this is probably the first time goats were seen wearing face masks to prevent coronavirus.

The TikTok video has been going viral.

The goats, however, are not the first animals that have been seen wearing masks around the world since the coronavirus epidemic first started to spread from Wuhan, China earlier in the year.

As more and more people became infected by the droplet-borne disease, many put masks on the pets such as cats and dogs to prevent them from catching the virus amid uncertainty about whether the virus affected animals or could be transmitted through them to other animals or humans.
