Kenyan social-distancing cyclist pedals his message

A 38-year-old cyclist has been pedalling around Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, to teach people about social distancing in the age of coronavirus.

His name is Isaac Tarit and he uses a custom-made bike to get across his message, according to the EPA news agency.

The wheels are much further apart than on a usual bike – to show how far apart people should stand to avoid passing on the virus.
