A heated row broke out on a packed train in Australia over the continued spread of coronavirus across the world. A Sydney man and woman clashed as he accused her of being “disgusting” for not covering her mouth when she coughed. At the time of writing there are 85 confirmed cases of coronavirus Covid-19 in Australia.
The footage was captured by an ABC journalist called Andy Park in a quiet carriage on Sydney’s intercity V-set train.
It shows a man and woman arguing after he asked her to cover her mouth when she coughed.
She angrily told him: “I did not open my mouth when I coughed. I coughed inside my mouth.”
The man told her: “That’s disgusting.”
The woman shot back: “Yes well you’re disgusting too.”
She then deliberately coughs in his direction.
The man appears shocked and immediately takes off his headphones.
He furiously says: “Are you serious? Did you just cough at me?”
The woman quickly replied: “Yes. I don’t have a pandemic.”
There have been a total of four deaths from the virus so far in Australia.
Three of these were in New South Wales and one in Western Australia.
