The video, which is an Israeli mask campaign footage, features people with special ability masking up, joining in the fight against the pandemic.
In the video, differently-abled people, including those with amputated arms and limbs, can be seen putting on a face mask with ease and encouraging the practice. A message pops up at the end of the video, saying, ‘wear masks, save a life’.
Pune Police tagged the post with a message saying, “It feels so hot, can’t wear this mask’ – If you have used these words recently, then this video is for YOU.”

While many found the video inspiring, for some, the caption of the video, drawing parallels between heat and disability, wasn’t appropriate. Take a look at some of the reactions here:
The summer in Pune has nothing to do with Disability 😂
But we should definitely all wear masks
