People think coronavirus is related to beer
An alarming number of people are confused
People around the world have been searching online for information about coronavirus, including how to prevent it and how it spreads.
But now another, more disturbing, search trend has come to light too.
According to BoingBoing, there has been a surge in searches for “corona beer virus”.
Yes. It seems a lot of people think the virus is connected to Corona beer.
The searches happened in North America, western Europe, Australia, India, Indonesia, Japan and New Zealand.
Sigh. Shame we have to say this, but the origins of the word are similar, and nothing more. Corona translates to crown in Spanish and Italian. Coronaviruses got their names because of the crown-like spikes on their surfaces.
