On Tuesday (3rd March 2020), A Snapchat video showed the Democratic hopeful "Mike Bloomberg". Touching his mouth before he pulled apart a pizza put out for staffers at a Virginia campaign office. Recently he declared as the best presidential candidate to combat the coronavirus outbreak. But his own personal hygiene practices have caused some to question the claim.
Mike was ripping the crust from one slice of pizza while he touched other pieces of the communal pie. After sampling the lunchtime treat. Mike licked several of his fingers and placed the incriminating hand on a box of instant coffee. This clip quickly went viral, with Twitter users noticing. That his unhygienic behavior appears to defy doctor warnings. To avoid hand-to-mouth contact in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak.
