A viral video has shown a terrifying experiment in Japan, showing how easily coronavirus can spread in restaurants when just one person is infected.
The Japanese “black light” experiment proved how quickly coronavirus can spread in restaurants and other communal spaces by using fluorescent paint as a mock virus to ‘infect’ diners.
The experiment which was conducted by the public broadcasting organization NHK in conjunction with health experts, used paint to represent a ‘virus’ with one of the ten participants chosen to be “infected” and had the fluorescent paint applied to his palms.
In the video, each participant goes about the restaurant as they normally would, not considering a potential contamination for 30 minutes.
At the end of the video, the participants are cast under black lights revealing where the “infection” had spread.
The “germs”, can be seen on food, serving utensils and platters, and even on the faces of some of the participants.
