Mask over the Mask and order to stay away. Editing: Disclosure / Games Obs.
So far, the complications surrounding the pandemic caused by the new coronavirus (Covid-19) have also caused considerable damage in the gaming world. However, this does not mean that these casualties have prevented the industry from using its weapons in favor of fighting the virus originating in the Chinese city of Wuhan. And the most recent counter strike comes from someone who wears a mask: Scorpion.
Ed Boon, co-creator and director of the game Mortal Kombat, used the yellow ninja to creatively warn about precautions to avoid contagion with the new coronavirus. Through a post on his Twitter account, Ed joked with the reverse of a classic Scorpion phrase: “GET OVER HER!” / "COME HERE!!!".

Instead, now Scorpion preaches social distance by sending an unusual "Stay over there!", "STAY THERE!" in Portuguese.
Another detail that few have noticed is the Scorpion mask. In place of his detailed mask, a conventional 'pharmacy' was used to reinforce the current risk situation. See below:

To non-gamers who are quarantined and who may have randomly fallen into this content, “Get Over Here !!!” is the expression used by the character when he launches a harpoon that sticks in the chest of his opponents, pulling them next to him, where they will suffer more hits.

In the face of yet another typical bo bo by Ed boon, netizens went wild, and the responses also followed the same footprint. Internet user @Freddfries used an ironic Sub-Zero gif to reinforce Ed's reminder: washing hands.
The coronavirus is still a long way from having a "fatality", but certainly the creativity "wins" in this initiative by Ed Boon.
