Police in Arrowtown have given the fight against Covid-19 the old west treatment.
A tongue-in-cheek video posted on the Southern District Police Facebook page shows an officer engaged in a stand-off with a cartoon version of the virus.
The officer eventually defeats his foe thanks to a quick-drawn spray of hand sanitiser.
The clip was shot in Arrowtown, near Queenstown.
