The Mask Carpenter

Como is a carpenter who specializes in making caskets; a job that has had him despised by the locals. During the Corona pandemic which has seen a lot of deaths related to Covid-19, business has been booming for him.
He has been strictly following the containment measures provided by the government while his close friends have been apparently careless in observing the measures. He faces mockery due to his financial instability as compared to his friends.
He is the last resort the friends run to when in dire need of the services he provides.
