deliberately COUGH : A group of children have been filmed coughing on a shop attendant amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The disgusting footage was shot last week by a staff member at a phone repair store in Cranbourne Park Shopping Centre in south-eastern Melbourne.

The youths approached the store pretending they needed to get a phone fixed before becoming aggressive and coughing at employees.

They were just laughing at me and coughing.

‘I was really scared.’

The government has urged people to practice social distancing to stop COVID-19 from spreading.

People have been instructed to keep 1.5 metres apart at all times to prevent new cases of the virus from overwhelming the health system.

The revolting incident comes as an irate Aldi shopper was filmed coughing in a worker’s face after going on an explosive rant at the check out. 

The argument started when an unidentified woman accused two male employees of stealing hundred dollar notes from her purse at the supermarket’s store in Mount Druitt, western Sydney, over the weekend.
