Street hawker sells surgical face masks outside Rome's Termini station.A street hawker has been photographed selling surgical face masks on the streets outside Rome's Termini station, following two confirmed cases of Coronavirus in the capital.
A man with a "strong Neapolitan accent" has been selling the masks - open and without their original packaging - according to local media.
The masks are being sold in recent days on Via Giolitti and Via Gioberti, outside the central train station, for €10 each, reports Italian newspaper La Repubblica.
Masks sold out recently in many Roman pharmacies despite medical experts stating that they provide no protection against catching the Coronavirus.
