To have a laugh, a pair of Arab immigrants in Eskilstuna, Sweden recorded a video of themselves approaching people on the street while coughing, sneezing, and pretending as if they’ve been infected with the coronavirus.
The video, which was published on YouTube on March 25th under duo’s shared account “Alpha & Ali”, shows the two men – Ali Qasem and Hussein Matar – walking up to people, invading their personal space while they cough, sneeze, and pretend as if they’ve been infected with COVID-19. When the passers-by pull retreat, the migrants pursue them and continue coughing and sneezing in their direction.
During the interactions, the migrants ask where hospitals are located and explain that they may have been infected with the coronavirus.
The so-called “joke” begins at 1:30.
