This video seen over 10 million times and liked three million times online shows an adorable little girl trying to eat a biscuit but forgetting about the fact her mouth is covered by a face mask.
The clip filmed inside a gated community in the city of Bozhou in China’s eastern province of Anhui shows the tot in thick winter clothes and pigtails holding the snacks in either hand.
The footage, taken by one of her neighbours, shows her appearing to forget that she is wearing a surgical mask when she tries to eat the biscuit.
She shoves the biscuit towards her mouth, and it crumbles against the fabric as she begins to chew.
But the adorable toddler appears perplexed as to why she is not tasting anything despite looking down to see a piece of her favourite snack missing.
The lighthearted video ends with the mystery still unsolved as the girl moves her mouth still trying to eat the biscuit.
Social media user ‘Nibuyao Zheme Youcai’ wrote: “Little girl, you must have so many questions.”
‘Meiri Tianfen’ added: “Mum, I’ve had so many biscuits – why am I still hungry?”
‘Boxun He’er’ said: “Mum, I think my mouth has disappeared.”
The girl and her family are among hundreds of millions who have been encouraged to quarantine themselves inside their homes and gated communities to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus – now officially COVID-19.
The deadly disease, for which there is currently no vaccine, has claimed 2,801 lives worldwide, mostly in mainland China.
