This 2009 image depicts a healthcare practitioner as he was administering the H1N1 live attenuated intranasal vaccine (LAIV) to an Asian man.

Reardon said he Googled a solution, and after reading an article about an 11-year-old who also got magnets stuck in his nose, he tried using other magnets to pull them out.

"I have some electronic equipment but really no experience or expertise in building circuits or things", Reardon, a research fellow at Swinburne University in Melbourne who studies pulsars and gravitational waves, told Guardian Australia. He added he was constructing circuits but was not an expert in the work.

"I just felt a little annoyed when it appeared", he said, admitting that his invention had the opposite effect to what he wanted: instead of making noise when his hands were near his. face, he buzzed incessantly until he moved them to his face. "Then I started mindlessly placing the magnets on my face", he said. "Needless to say I am not going to play with the magnets anymore", Reardon said.

"It's the same logic as clipping pegs to your ears - I clipped them to my earlobes and then clipped them to my nostril and things went downhill pretty quickly when I clipped the magnets to my other nostril", the bumbling academic said.

Reardon said he found magnets in his nostrils, and on the outside. When he removed the magnets from the outside of his nose, the two inner magnets remained together.

Unfortunately, Reardon lost his grip on magnets and glued those magnets in his nostrils. And those two magnets ended up in my left nostril while the other one was in my right.

His attempts to extract the magnets stuck up his nose with even more magnets hit a roadblock when he ran out of magnets, and had to be rushed to the hospital.

Australian astrophysicist Daniel Reardon was hospitalized after getting four magnets stuck up his nose while trying to invent a device that would help prevent people avoid behaviors associated with contracting the Wuhan coronavirus such as touching their face, according to a report by the Guardian. When doctors removed three magnets from his left nostril, the only magnet fell down to his throat, which he coughs it out.

Then, Reardon then made a decision to use his two remaining magnets to try to remove the magnets inside his nose, according to the Guardian.

As the Guardian first reported, Daniel Reardon of Australia was noodling around out of boredom, attempting to invent an alarm system which would alert the user every time they raised their hand to their face. "Working remotely is not that bad".
