Dad Creates Special Suit To Protect Baby Against Coronavirus
The special suit, created by Cao Junjie, is inspired by the popular video game Death Stranding, an action game set in the United States during the aftermath of the eponymous 'Death Stranding', which saw creatures from a realm between life and death roam the Earth.
The suit features a small pod with a see-through screen, along with a filter and screen showing the air quality.
In the video, filmed on Friday (20 March), Junijie shows off his creation by putting the harness on and popping his baby inside the cabin - amazingly, the kid doesn't look fussed in the slightest as they're bundled into the cabin.
After popping on his own mask, Junijie then heads out for a stroll with the infant, who spends most of the time sleeping soundly, by the looks of things.
At one point Junijie places his hand inside the pod through a special hole with an interconnect glove, and comforts the baby.
Junijie explained: "Because I like scientific movies and games, the structure of the safety cabin is similar to the game Death Stranding, I checked the character in the game."

He also said he developed the pod to carry his baby outside, and claimed the special suit allows him and his whole family to walk in out in the open as the coronavirus outbreak continues to affect countries all over the globe.
Junijie is reportedly attempting to patent the Death Stranding-inspired suit - though it's probably worth noting that it's his word against ours as to whether or not it actually works.
Many others have used the spread of the virus as the impetus to get creative, thinking outside the box as social distancing and social isolation measures continue to impact day-to-day business.
Some people are even creating their own pubs inside the house, so that they can enjoy a nice pint while still following orders to stay at home where possible.
If you don't follow these instructions, you are putting people's lives at risk:
You must stay at home to protect our NHS and save lives. #StayHomeSaveLives

Whatever you're doing, keep at it, as the importance of social distancing and social isolation has been stressed by many leaders throughout the world - with the UK government launching a #StayHomeSaveLives campaign.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in one of his daily coronavirus briefings: "Take this advice seriously. Follow it because it's absolutely crucial."
He added: "We have to slow the spread of the disease."
