As the world continues to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic, multiple measures have been taken to contain the spread of the virus, including lockdowns and sanitary practices like wearing masks.

Alongside hand sanitizers, it is widely known that the practice of wearing a face mask is to prevent a healthy person from inhaling the pathogens that may cause them to become infected.

“A first-class anatomy graduate making face masks with beads to help people breathe better is innovative. It’s not easy for someone to come up with an amazing idea like that,” a user wrote.

“Her school deserves to be fined for giving an unintelligent anatomy student like her a final clearance, though.”

Here is what some Nigerians had to say:
