The Government has instructed the British people to secure a sturdy face mask during the consumption of any Chinese food.
The rule does not just apply to food from take-aways, but also to stir fry veg made in the home, and any food cooked with Chinese five spice.
Local food eater, Peter Thape has made a tiny slit in his face mask in order to enjoy some of the more traditional Chinese delicacies.
‘I can suck Kellogg’s Super Noodles through this little cut in the mask,’ boasted Thape.
‘The curry flavour makes a bit of a mess though,’ he added.
