This is the disgusting moment a man ignored coronavirus fears, licking his fingers and scratching his genitals before smearing his hands around the inside of a lift.
CCTV footage from last Friday morning shows the young man committing the bizarre act at a metro station in Bangkok, Thailand.
He was spotted glimpsing at the CCTV while using his mobile phone before the doors opened, walking out then returning into the lift.
The footage, taken just after 5.20am, goes on to show how after the doors had closed again he licked his finger and pressed several buttons.
He scratched his genitals and wiped his fingers round the lift and licked his hand again before pressing more buttons.
The questionable behaviour comes at a time when people are being told to use hand santiser and stand at least 1.5 metres away from others to stop the Covid-19 spread.
A Bangkok Mass Transit System spokesman said they immediately began hunting the man – seen wearing a black tank top vest and red sports shorts – after being made aware of the incident.
They also disinfected the lift.
They said: “Our staff began following him as soon as he walked out of the lift but when he saw them, he ran away.
“We also ordered the team of cleaners to disinfectant the lift. They are cleaned every one hour, too.”
Later in the evening, police arrested a 32-year-old Thai man and sent him to the hospital to be tested for coronavirus after he admitted being the person in the video.
Police Colonel Patikorn Sornchai said the suspect was found wandering around the area close to the station.
He said: “We do not know whether he was infected with a coronavirus so we had to be careful while arresting him.
“He was then immediately taken for checks at the hospital.”
