There is no denying the fact that the coronavirus pandemic has changed our lives to a great extent and this change will slowly become a way of living at least till the vaccine for the virus doesn’t get developed. While staying indoors is the best way possible to keep ourselves safe, maintaining social distancing and wearing masks outdoor are also highly necessary.
Wearing masks has also led to emergence of a new market in which not only simple but designer masks are also available for sale. Even the bride and groom who are getting married now are seen wearing masks matching with their traditional attires. How important wearing mask is can be understood by the fact that governments of various countries have made it a punishable offence if someone doesn’t wear a mask in a public place.
At the same time, it is also needed that a person wears a proper mask and wears it in a right manner. But you will be surprised to know that a person from Pimpri-Chinchwad has taken stupidity to a new level.
The name of the person is Shankar Kurade and to your utter amazement, he has spent a huge amount of Rs 2.89 lakhs on his mask which is made of gold. He states that the mask has small holes which will help in breathing but he is also unsure of the fact whether his mask will be effective against coronavirus or not.
Maharashtra: Shankar Kurade, a resident of Pimpri-Chinchwad of Pune district, has got himself a mask made of gold worth Rs 2.89 Lakhs. Says, "It's a thin mask with minute holes so that there's no difficulty in breathing. I'm not sure whether this mask will be effective." #COVID19 pic.twitter.com/JrbfI7iwS4

Shankar Kurade is not just wearing a gold mask but is also seen flashing a lot of gold jewelry such a necklace, rings, bracelet, etc. and the man seems to be obsessed with gold.
Twitterati was not quite happy with the person’s approach as he wasted such a huge amount which he could have used in helping the needy people amidst the COVID-19 outbreak.
This is how Twitter users reacted:
