This is the viral moment a school student is caught sleeping in his bed during an online class during the coronavirus lockdown.

The hilarious incident reportedly took place last week in the city of La Plata, in the eastern Argentina province of Buenos Aires when student Mateo Peluso was attending a class on Zoom.

Peluso reportedly put his computer next to his bed to attend the class but then dozed off on camera.

In the video, he can be seen sleeping in bed. The teacher, who has not been named, was quoted in local media as saying: “They fall asleep in class, but falling asleep in bed, that has never happened with any student”.

The video has gone viral with more than 2.1 million views and 131,000 likes on social media.

‘camich1998’ said: “I think it is a lack of respect, learn to respect the time of others”.

‘RivelinoFajardo’ said: “I am laughing a lot, that is how you ended up the other day”.

The President of Argentina Alberto Fernandez extended the social distance until 26th April and said that it is not a priority to get students back to school because of the coronavirus crisis.

According to the latest figures from the Johns Hopkins University, Argentina has registered 3,031 cases of COVID-19, with 142 deaths.
