A cat sitting on a chair looking directly at a COVID-19 test swabber in full personal protective equipment, who then proceeded to touch the cat as if carrying out a swab test.
The venue was in a university in Chongqing where staff and students were required to take the COVID-19 nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT).
The caption in the clip said the cat is a known community cat in the school.
According to the student who witnessed the incident, the cat took the initiative to run to the empty seat when no one was around at that time and sat on it. The feline then proceeded to stare intently at the swabber.
The swabber then gently booped the cat on the nose using a swab.
When that happened, the cat, it was witnessed, actually extended its head for the swabber to touch it, according to the student who saw how the cat reacted.
The cat ran away afterward.
