Tao’s remote-controlled car is a toy car powered by a battery. The car was captured moving through the streets of Jinan, Shandong Province in China. Since the residents have deserted the streets due to the coronavirus scare, it was easy for the car to move around easily without any issue. The deadly virus has already killed more than 900 people and up to 40,000 people in the Chinese mainland are reportedly infected.
