It should be noted that coronavirus has killed over 400 people and spread across more than 20 countries, including UK, US and Australia.

CEO Rick tried using one of the pods called StadiumPod on a plane, his brother David said.

StadiumPod is designed to fit over the torso and be worn while sitting down as the plastic tarpaulin stops the wearer from being rained on.

David wrote: "My brother thought to see how his StadiumPod, meant for seated spectators at sports games, would work on an airplane.

"He tells me the flight attendant happily took his photo and that the man who sat next to him didn't even bat an eye. Stay safe out there!"
