Outdoor toilets in France are being adapted to the consequences of the pandemic by installing open cabins in the fresh air.

The coronavirus has led to an increase in demand for contactless toilets and other bathroom equipment. The closure of public toilets, as well as bars, cafes and other establishments with amenities means that people have nowhere to go to the toilet when they are outside their homes. In London, there are reports of desperate people who used bushes in parks.

One Lapee toilet includes three cubicles without doors — its visitors are covered only by rounded partitions.

Interestingly, the visitor of such a toilet has only the lower part of the body covered. So you can relieve yourself and... breathe fresh air.
