A woman used the Holy Bible as a face mask to protect herself from COVID-19.

The woman is seen wearing a small book as a face cover but cannot confirm if that is a Bible.

The woman is seen wearing a small book as a face cover but cannot confirm if that is a Bible.A video is circulated on social media with a caption that a Nigerian woman used a mini pocket Bible book as a face mask and spotted in Logos stores at Accra, Ghana. The video has been circulating since May 2020.

While many people have been sporting masks that are creatively designed, a woman is seen strapping a book to her face with a string by piercing on the sides. Some reports say that it is a small New Testament bible that she wore to protect herself from contracting the virus amid the pandemic. The video clip is only 10 sec; it is not clearly visible whether she actually wore a bible as a face mask. Hence we currently cannot verify whether the woman's book as a face mask is actually a small Bible.

The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19 including symptoms, prevention and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organisation or your national healthcare authority.
