Watch Chinese SWAT team practice taking down a coronavirus-infected man (VIDEO)
A Chinese SWAT team was filmed tackling people while practicing how to deal with an uncooperative coronavirus-infected patient.
In video footage of the event staged in the Henan province, a man wearing a mask drives up to a COVID-19 checkpoint.
"Please get out of the vehicle to cooperate with our examination," an official says, according to a Storyful translation of the dialogue.
As the man steps out from his car, officers holding firearms and wearing hazmat suits approach him. Some, who don’t get close to the potential coronavirus patient, are simply wearing police officer uniforms.
From behind, one of the SWAT team members throws what appears to be a fishing net over the man’s head in an effort to restrain him. An official holding a riot shield approaches as they drag the restrained man away, who now has a black bag covering his head.
Immediately after, the officials are sprayed down by what appears to be an antiseptic.
