This is the homemade hazmat suit created from rubbish bags and ski goggles that a father-of-three is using in a bid to keep himself safe in the coronavirus pandemic.
Engineer Zamakhyari Khairiri, 41, created the suit to allow him to feel safe when he goes to the supermarket in the town of Jerteh in western Malaysia Terengganu state.
The images show how the enterprising dad made the protective suit from rubbish bags, a face mask with a grin printed onto it and ski goggles.
Khairiri’s body and hands are covered in plastic bags and he was wellington boots on for extra protection as he does the shopping.
He said it takes around 10 minutes to put the outfit on and added: “I don’t care what other people think, I actually feel proud that I can remind others to take steps to curb the spread of this virus.
“In places like this (the supermarket), there is a high risk of infection, and this is my small way of taking care of the safety of my family and the people around me.”
He said his trip to the shop on 25th March was his first time out of the house in eight days as he follows Malaysia’ strict lockdown, named the Movement Control Order (MCO), which was imposed on 18th March.
