A team of police then takes them to an ambulance and forces them to go inside it.

The coronavirus panic spreads quite quickly, especially when an infected person is around. The video shows that the cops forcefully make them enter the ambulance and close the doors on the scared lawbreakers. At the end of the video, the lady cop gives the message on how everyone should stay inside the home during the lockdown and save themselves and stop the virus from spreading.
