Social media users across the globe have been left baffled after it has emerged that a vaccination centre in the Phillippines played zombie film World War Z while people waited to get their Covid jab.
The 2013 film starring Brad Pitt focuses on a former United Nations employee who travels the world in a race against the clock to stop a zombie pandemic that threatens to destroy humanity.
After a woman took to Twitter and posted a picture of inside the vaccination centre, people couldn't help but point out the irony of the choice in film, considering the real-life pandemic the world is currently experiencing.
Alongside the picture, the woman wrote: "My sister's friend is in the queue to get vaccinated in cavite and they set it up so that they can watch a movie while they wait. bit of a questionable film choice."
Despite what the post says, it appears that the picture was snapped in the Bataan People's Centre in Balanga rather than Cavite.
