According to the listing, the firm attached to selling the frightful product is YTFU EU which is listed as being based in Guangdong, China – the country where the virus is thought to have originated.
Listed as ‘Corona Halloween Mask’ and ‘Corona Latex Horror Mask’, the latex heads resemble what the Covid-19 virus looks like under a microscope.
The “horror mask”, which is available in bright green and dull grey with red spikes, is made of (sic) “latural latex” and can be used to “frighten everyone” at a party.
They come complete with scary eyes and a mouth lined with teeth to complete what could be the most distasteful costume choice for October 31.
It is unclear whether the masks are real or just a sick prank.
The Sun Online was unable to get hold of a copy of the mask – as it takes over a month to arrive to the UK after being shipped from China.
More than 40,000 Brits have lost their lives since the beginning of the pandemic in March.
Rachel Power, Chief Executive of the Patients Association, said: “These masks show a terrible lapse of judgement by the manufacturers and sellers, and I hope they will be removed from sale quickly.
“I’ve no doubt the great majority of people will find them hugely distasteful, and I can’t imagine that many people would wish to wear one.”
