Doctor makes face mask for car

A doctor in Canada has been giving people a reason to smile during the coronavirus pandemic after fitting out his car with a giant face mask.

Dr Brian Stonehocker, who works at the University of Alberta Hospital in Edmonton, created the mask for his 2019 Volkswagen Passat out of painting drop cloths and duct tape.

“We’re all going to work anxious every day and you could feel the tension build,” he told CTV News. “I wanted to do something funny that would make my colleagues laugh and so we came up with the idea of putting the mask on the car.”
