A woman coughing on a train in Sydney, Australia, led to an altercation with another passenger who felt a little more etiquette could have been displayed on her part.

The heated exchange was caught on tape and has since become a viral video, having been seen thousands of times across Twitter and Facebook.

The two begin fighting over the woman’s coughing etiquette, something that’s becoming a very sensitive topic as coronavirus continues to spread throughout the world.

“I did not open my mouth when I coughed,” she says in the video. “I coughed inside my mouth.”

The man responds: “It’s disgusting,” to which she replies: “Yeah, you’re disgusting, too.”

She then coughs intentionally, in the man’s direction.

“Are you serious? Did you just cough at me?” he asks her.

She responds: “Yeah,” before calling him a bully.

“Bully? I asked you politely to please cover your mouth,” he says.

“Yes, I did not open my mouth when I coughed,” she continues. “Don’t you listen?”

“The advice from the government has been—” he says before being cut off by the woman’s response: “Oh, just shut up. Look, just be quiet. I don’t want to hear this.”

The man proceeds to put on his sunglasses and headphones before the video

Already the video has been viewed more than 184,000 times.

The World Health Organization is encouraging everyone to cough or sneeze into their elbow, just in case you didn't know that already.

Not everyone was in favour of the man's response however, with one Twitter user writing, "That dude needs to lock himself inside if he's that worried."

Some Twitter users however felt the woman was out of line, one user writing, "The innocent guy has a right to be worried, I always put my hand over my mouth when coughing in public."

As always, the reception on Twitter was mixed, with many users on both sides feeling as though they were correct, and that everyone else had no idea what they were talking about.
