Ecuador Police Has Unique Approach In Promoting Health Protocols
ECUADOR POLICE UNIQUE APPROACH – Instead of being aggressive and strict, authorities from Ecuador have a new way of approaching people without masks.
Millions of people around the world are affected by the deadly coronavirus. As such, some countries have strict policies when it comes to proper health protocols as a countermeasure against COVID-19. For example, countries like the Philippines have one of the strictest policies in Asia. Those without masks in public are most likely going to be arrested.

After they carried the man without a mask, a police officer came around, not to give him a ticket for violating public protocols, but to give him his own mask. The video quickly went viral over the internet gaining thousands of views on various social media platforms.
Here are some of the comments from Reddit:
