Now it sings about how to wash your hands with soap and water, and the abbreviation PPAP now stands for Pray-for-People-And-Peace (that is, "Pray for people and the world").
Here's how it goes:
I have a hand
I have a soap

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.
