During the COVID-19 pandemic, PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) kits are absolutely a necessity. However, it seems like there are some people who can’t figure out the differences between a raincoat and a PPE.

In a strange event, a drunk man took a PPE kit from a hospital, mistaking that it was only a raincoat. According to reports, the man is a vegetable seller. After he fell into a drain, he was admitted to Mayo Hospital in Nagpur to treat his injuries.
