A 25-year-old is facing up to seven years in prison on a subway in Moscow, the capital of Russia, acting as if he was having a crisis due to the corona virus and causing minor scale chaos at the station.
Covid-19, or corona virus, as it is known, spreads to the world from Wuhan, China. According to the data shared by the Chinese authorities, the number of people who died from the infection rose to 2,130. The number of people infected with the virus has placed a ladder to 76,000.
A person acting as if he was having a crisis in the Moscow subway due to the corona virus caused a great panic at the station. In a video shared on the subject, a 25-year-old teenager named Karomatullo Dzhaborov is wearing a mask. Dzhaborov screams a friend as a corona virus after he suddenly fell to the ground. The passengers, seeing the young people having a crisis, experience a great panic and quickly unload the train at the next station.
After the images about the incident went viral on social media, the Russian police detained Dzhaborov and his friends on charges of “pre-designed hooliganism”. The 25-year-old teenager, whose purpose is to only joke, now faces up to seven years in prison.
Dzhaborov is not the only one trying to have a reputation in social media using the Corona virus. Previously, a 28-year-old person named James Potok, who was traveling on a plane with a Toronto-Jamaica flight, suddenly stood up and told everyone on the plane that he had recently traveled to Wuhan, the zero point of the corona virus, and felt unwell. The man, who caused the change of the route of the plane, later stated on the social media account that the incident was just a joke.
