Chinese pet owners are rushing to buy face masks for their dogs amid the coronavirus outbreak to prevent their loved ones from catching the deadly disease.
The news comes after China's top expert for infectious diseases warned that pets might also be infected by the coronavirus, which has so far spread to 21 countries and regions and sickened more than 7,900 people.
The World Health Organization, however, claims that it has not seen any evidence of the virus being passed onto cats or dogs.
The coronavirus pandemic has already had an impact on fashion, and will probably not be released any time soon. People, in the absence of some basic accessories for protection, go to certain tricks. Sometimes, when there is an opportunity to buy the same mask, there remains the desire “not to be like everyone else” or simply to diversify the gray silence. And someone acts out of despair or in the style of "very good, skillful masks ”.
Among the examples there are “excesses on the ground”, but one can also find quite viable ones, ready for implementation at the lowest cost. The internet is full of funny masks invented by people. Bemorepanda collected the funniest 50 masks.

Women wearing face masks have been noticed sunbathing at the Malvarrosa beach, as some Spanish provinces are allowed to ease lockdown restrictions during phase one, in Valencia, Spain, Reuters reports.

Disposable masks have invaded the beaches of Hong Kong where, for several months, residents have been covering their faces to protect themselves from the new coronavirus.
According to environmental associations, these masks add to the already worrying amounts of plastic waste floating in Hong Kong's waters, writes Agerpres.
"The disposable mask is just another weight we leave to future generations," said Gary Stokes, co-founder of OceansAsia.
Shortly before the pandemic broke out, the Hong Kong environmental organization launched a one-year study on waste and microplastics found on one of the country's most remote and uninhabited islands.
The five most commonly found items were bottles, polystyrene packaging, lighters, disposable cutlery and plastic straw.
Currently, disposable masks float on the surface of the sea, along the beaches and the coast.
Recently, environmentalists identified and collected 70 masks within a radius of 100 meters. A week later, another 30 masks were found.
"Since people started wearing masks, the consequences of this phenomenon are now visible on the beaches," Stokes said.
Hong Kong's nearly 7.5 million people produce six million tons of waste each year, of which only about 30% is recycled.
