With millions of people stuck at home sharing light-hearted content online to alleviate the tedium of the lockdown, video of a duck family crossing the street went viral on social media.

The duck was followed by her ducklings, and the policeman escorted them across. He left when they went safely across.
The duck family has reached their final destination, a small lake several metres away from the busy traffic.
