Singapore — A member of the public took to media to share an incident of an uncle who allegedly followed them around JEM, telling them they weren’t allowed to pull down their mask to drink while walking.

One Sarguneshwara Subramaniam posted a video of the incident on Facebook on Tuesday (Jul 20).

“At JEM, this fellow going around taking video of people drinking, saying we are not allowed to walk around and drink,” wrote the concerned individual.

According to the post, the man had followed them from the first floor to the third to record their behaviour.

“When I start recording, he starts running,” said Mr Sarguneshwara. “I he posts his part of the video.”

The individual noted that there were safe distancing ambassadors on each floor of the mall who saw them drinking while walking “and said nothing.”

We even confirmed with the officers who approached us after the dramatic scenes, said Mr Sarguneshwara.

The video began with the mallgoer saying, “See this uncle, like to disturb people.”

The woman consuming a beverage asked, “What is your problem if I drink? I don’t understand.”

The man replied, “Put on your mask.”

Mr Sarguneshwara then advises the uncle to mind his business. “You have nothing to do, lah.”

“If you want, follow me to my house; make sure I wear my mask at my house also,” he added.

Towards the end of the video, the uncle raises his phone towards Mr Sarguneshwara to capture the scene.

According to the Ministry of Health (MOH), it is for all persons who are six years old and above to wear a mask when leaving their homes.

“Masks help to reduce the expulsion and transmission of droplets, which is the predominant route of transmission of -19. It is therefore important for you to wear a mask so that you will not spread the infection to others if you are infected. This is important even if you feel well because you may be infected but asymptomatic,” said MOH.

However, masks can be removed while eating, drinking or taking medication.
