Indian man wears $3,870 gold mask in pandemic
Different kinds of colourful facemasks have become a part of fashion across the globe amid the coronavirus pandemic, but a man in India has
taken the measures to prevent infection to the next level by wearing a mask made of gold.
Shankar Kurhade, 48, of Pune, claims his gold mask weighs 50 grams and costs around $3,870, according to Reuters.
A resident of Pimpri-Chinchwad, Kurhade said the mask is thin with minute holes for breathing.
His action obviously reminds all of the fact that life is precious. Kurhade, however, is not sure whether the mask will be effective, according to local media reports.
Videos and photos of Kurhade that went viral on social media showed the man's affection to gold as he wears a load of golden ornaments, including a thick chain around his neck, a huge bracelet, and big rings. -REUTERS
