A man in coronavirus self-isolation sent his dog out with a note under its collar and cash to get him some of his favourite crisps.

Mexican lad Antonio Munoz was reportedly on his third day of quarantine when he started to fancy some Cheetos.

Concerned he wasn’t allowed out of his home, the lad attached some cash and a note to the chihuahua’s collar, which said: “Hello Mr Shopkeeper.

“Please sell my dog some Cheetos, the orange kind, not the red kind, they’re too hot.

“She has $20 attached to her collar. WARNING: She’ll bite if not treated right.”

Not only did the pooch manage to get to the store, but it was even snapped with the bag of crisps in its mouth as it scurried back to its owner.

Mr Munoz later shared on Facebook that his dog has returned with his favourite Cheetos.

It appeared the dog manage to evade any cheeky thieves who may have nabbed the crisps right from its mouth.

But, it appears Mr Munoz is going against the grain by self-isolating.

Mexican President Lopez Abrader has sparked controversy in the country with his relaxed attitude to the growing pandemic.

Sitting at a table packed with Mexican culinary staples, the president told Mexicans to keep dining out - something the World Health Organisation has strongly advised against.

He said in the video: “We’re going to keep living life as usual. I’ll tell you when not to go out any longer.”

But, his comments go against official advice in the country which has called a halt to public and private gatherings for the next month in a bid to stop the deadly spread.

On Tuesday, Mexico reported 367 confirmed coronavirus cases and four deaths.
