The outbreak of this disease is scary, VERY SCARY, and probably shouldn't be joked about...but C'MON PEOPLE!!!

Everyone's been hearing about the outbreak of coronavirus in China for more than a week now...and people all over the world are trying to figure out exactly what it is and how to avoid it.

Which led to this.

Apparently, people have been searching Google to see if you can catch coronavirus from Corona beer. Yes, I'm serious. Maybe, some of these people weren't being serious and just messing around. On the other hand, some were probably authentically scared. (Personally, I have more faith in my fellow beer drinkers) Anyway, over the past week, the number of people searching for things like "Corona beer virus" has EXPLODED...with lots of searches coming from the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, and India.

I'll save you the embarrassment of having that in your Google search history: Ummm...NO, coronavirus is NOT spread through Corona beer. So, go home, or to a bar, and crack one open, and thank God you don't have this deadly virus.
