A on a makeshift is making its rounds on social media, garnering praise from netizens.

The Covid-19 outbreak has caused a massive shortage of face mask supply in many countries such as Japan, China, Korea and Singapore. It is challenging to purchase face masks at drugstores or other shops at reasonable prices.

Others have taken matters into their own hands and introduced creative ways to protect oneself and others from contamination when stepping out to public places. One example was shared on March 5, by ’s Facebook page. It posted the following video with the caption, “Those who don’t have face mask can maybe consider this. Looks like a 3-ply mask.”

Contributed by a certain Yuan, the tutorial transformed men’s into a face mask. The man doing the demo held the briefs by the garter and with a few twists and folds, made it into a fancy face mask.
