A florist in the Philippines is selling romance and practicality this Valentine's Day with a bouquet of flowers that comes with anti-coronavirus gear. The innovative gift – which includes sanitizer, soap and a mask and gloves – is proving popular among local residents in Manila.
The owner of the flower shop said she made the "anti-nCoV bouquet" in part because she is "scared" of the rapid spread of the virus, The Associated Press reports.
"This bouquet that I made, the anti-nCoV bouquet, I thought of this because we have this coronavirus and so that people can have an idea that flowers are not the only thing you can give during Valentine's," flower shop owner Mary Jane Villegas told the AP. "Because of the spread of the virus, I included a mask, sanitizer, toothpaste and soap for Valentine's, instead of the usual things like chocolate."
