An odd video from Ukraine shows a priest dousing the roads of a city with holy water in order to fend off the coronavirus. The eerie scene reportedly unfolded in the community of Svaliava Raion last week a few days after the country imposed a nation-wide lockdown in response to the pandemic. As with many locations around the world currently under similar restrictions, the city became a veritable ghost town overnight, adding an unnerving element to the footage.
In the video, a flatbed truck can be seen driving down a desolate street with a pair of priests in the back of the vehicle. One of the holy men vigorously rings a bell, while his companion reaches into a bucket of holy water and disperses it onto the road with a flourish.
