The difference between “coronavirus” and “Coronabeer”, explained
Online searches for "corona beer virus," "beer virus," and "beer coronavirus" have risen around the world since January 18, apparently associating the drink and the virus with confusion. Only In the U.S. alone, Google Trends indicates that 57% of people those that searched one of those terms in recent days searched for "beer virus," while the remaining 43% looked for "corona beer virus."
So, in order not to create any confusion, we will try to answer the five most Googled questions about coronavirus:
1. What is coronavirus?
It is a family of viruses named so because “corona” means crown in Latin and these viruses have little spikes on their surfaces that make them look like little crowns. The strain that is causing the current outbreak that started in Wuhan, China, is a newly discovered strain in this family which no cure has been found yet.
1. What is Corona?
It is a brand of beer, a pale lager. The beer originated back in 1925, forty years before the first strain of coronavirus was discovered and named. The virus was not named after the beer. If you ask the bartender for a Corona and he will try to give you coronavirus instead, you should leave the place immediately.
2. Is coronarvirus deadly?
Coronarvirus can kill an average of 15% of people who are infected, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). This new 2019-nCoV has already resulted in at least 170 deaths with over 7,700 infected. So, yes it can be deadly. However, so far, this season, the flu has killed far more people, at least 8,000 in the U.S. alone.
2. Is Corona deadly?
Drinking in moderation may not kill you. However, drinking too much can end up killing you.
3. Can I prevent from coronavirus?
Currently there is no vaccine against any type of coronavirus. Therefore, the best things to do are to avoid close contact with those who are sick and to wash your hands frequently and thoroughly. Also, refrain from touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with your paws.
3. Can I prevent from Corona the beer?
Don’t buy it. Or ask the person throwing the party to get some other brand of beer. Alternatively, you can serve kale. No one will notice the difference.
4. How does coronavirus spread?
Looks like the new coronavirus spreads via respiratory droplets like the other types of coronavirus. So when an infected person sneezes or coughs, he or she can leave virus-filled respiratory droplets momentarily in the air or on some surface or object. Touching these droplets and then rubbing your eyes, nose, or mouth could get yourself infected.
4. How does Corona the beer spread?
By handing it out to people. A store, a bartender, or a party host may spread the beer. Additionally, if you spill the beer on a ping pong table, it can rapidly spread across the table.
5. Where does coronavirus come from?
Not beer. Unless someone who is infected with the coronavirus coughed or sneezed on a beer and then gave the beer to you. A study published in the Journal of Medical Virology suggested that this new coronavirus could have jumped from snakes to humans however, more research has to be made in order to find the cause of this infection.
5. Where does Corona the beer come from?
The refrigerator. It could also be from a shelf or a box. Occasionally a fanny pack may be the source. If you are wondering where it originally came from, Cervecería Modelo and Constellation Brands in Mexico produce Corona, the beer.
In conclusion, it's safe to drink a Corona beer and panicking when seeing a bottle of Corona is just silly. On the other hand, you should take all the necessary precocious while travelling to the affected areas.
According to Google Trends, searches for the Mexican beer Corona Extra have increased by more than 1,100% in the US since the outbreak first reached the country. ‘Beer virus’ and ‘corona beer virus’ are among the most frequent searches phrases.
Global searches for ‘coronavirus symptoms’ have also increased by more than 1,050%, while ‘what is coronavirus’ and ‘is coronavirus deadly’ also made the top five questions people are asking for. However, there is no link between the coronavirus and Corona Extra beer whatsoever.
It’s not completely clear what is driving the data displayed on Google trends. Does Google autocomplete have something to do with this? The Google Trends web page doesn’t clearly show the actual number of people who have been Googling “beer virus” and “Corona beer virus.” So while the uptick may seem relatively big, it is unclear what the actual increase in number may have been.
Initially the virus was first believed to have started at the Huanan Seafood Wholesales Market, in Wuhan, China, although authorities are still investigating the cause.
Even when the world is trying to find a cure for the deadly coronavirus pandemic, a new virus is threatening our society.
A report in Global Times said that a man from China's Yunnan province died from Hantavirus while on a bus to the Shandong province. Other 32 people on bus were also tested and now everyone is waiting for the results.
What is Hantavirus?
The Centre for Disease Control says that the virus is spread mainly from rodents. It goes on to say that infection with any of the hantavirus can cause hantavirus disease in people.
"Hantaviruses in the Americas are known as “New World” hantaviruses and may cause hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS). Other hantaviruses, known as “Old World” hantaviruses, are found mostly in Europe and Asia and may cause hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome.
It can cause hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) and haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS).
The disease is not airborne and can only spread to people if they come in contact with urine, feces, and saliva of rodents and less frequently by a bite from an infected host.
Symptoms of hantavirus
Early symptoms of HPS include fatigue, fever, and muscle aches, along with headaches, dizziness, chills and abdominal problems. If left untreated, it can lead to coughing and shortness of breath and can be fatal, with a mortality rate of 38 percent, according to CDC.
While the initial symptoms of HFRS too remain the same, it can cause low blood pressure, acute shock, vascular leakage, and acute kidney failure.

What The Hell
The hantavirus case comes at a time when the total count of those infected by novel coronavirus globally is nearing the 400,000 mark and scientists are yet to find a cure for it. The global death toll has crossed the 17,800 mark.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise but toilet paper isn’t the only thing that’s scarce these days – face masks and other personal protective equipment (PPE) is in dire need too. Naturally, this led to some people getting creative and coming up with all sorts of ways of protecting themselves. And let’s just say that not all attempts were entirely successful.
People are using anything at their disposal – from pads to medieval armor – to protect themselves and it seems like there’s no limit to their creativity. Check out all the unique ways people are protecting themselves from the coronavirus in the gallery below!
