Monkeys Go bananas for Social Distancing As they Line Up For A Snack In India


Jun. 03, 2020

A troop of monkeys have displayed exemplary social distancing amid the pandemic in India, despite their notorious acts of destruction and even snatching coronavirus samples.
'A perfect #SocialDistancing seen near Bhalukpong in Arunachal Pradesh along Assam-Arunachal boundary. If we observe carefully, animals can teach us many vital lessons that we may have missed in the haste of our normal daily lives.' local MP Mr Rijiu wrote.

Last week an Indian health worker was mobbed by monkeys who stole coronavirus blood samples, igniting fears that the stealing simians could spread the pandemic in the local area.  
After making off with the three samples earlier this week in Meerut, near the capital New Delhi, the monkeys scampered up nearby trees and one then tried to chew its plunder.
The sample boxes were later recovered and had not been damaged, Meerut Medical college superintendent Dheeraj Raj told AFP on Friday, after footage of the encounter went viral on social media. 
'They were still intact and we don't think there is any risk of contamination or spread,' Raj said.
He added that the three people whose samples were stolen were retested for the virus.
