Someone With COVID-19 Could Be Doing Something Disgusting To Your Food

Coronavirus has spread across the nation faster than originally expected, resulting in extreme measures to stop the contraction of COVID-19.

While most Americans have been abiding by quarantine and social distancing policies, there are those that have gone in the opposite direction.

So far in fact, that they are intentionally trying to infect your food with the virus.

It is hard to believe how someone would make light of a disease that has claimed the lives of over 113,000 people worldwide, but there are those doing it.

In California, a woman was arrested for licking $1,800 worth of groceries and various other items.

Yahoo News reports:

“Chris Fiore, spokesman for the South Lake Tahoe police department, near the border with Nevada, told AFP that officers were called to the Safeway store on Tuesday following reports of “a customer licking groceries” at a time of heightened fears over the spread of the highly contagious novel coronavirus.”

The suspect, Jennifer Walker, 53, was arrested with many items in her cart, including meat and liquor, that she had no means of paying for.

Unfortunately, the stories don’t stop there.

In Missouri a 26-year-old man was arrested after his video went viral of licking deodorants in Walmart, NBC News reports.

Cody Pfister apparently put himself and thousands of others at risk of death to mock the pandemic fears.

The joke is on him because after people in the Netherlands, Ireland, and the United Kingdom called the post into the authorities he was charged with a terrorist threat.

In a more overt attack, a New Jersey man was charged with making a terrorist threat and harassment, according to NBC News, the father purposely coughing on a Wegman’s grocery store employee.

As if the fears of the coronavirus spread by the media aren’t enough, the man, George Falcone, 50, told the employee he was infected with the virus before coughing into their face.

Social media influencers have been making light of the coronavirus with challenges that promote the spread of the virus.

However, the Tik Tok personality known as Larz from California was hospitalized with COVID-19 after posting a video of himself licking a toilet bowl, The New York Post reports.

The Tik Tok challenge has caused many users to lick toilet seats and groceries in various stores, leaving influencers suffering from a disease from which they thought they were invincible.

I tested positive for Coronavirus,” the 21-year-old from Beverly Hills tweeted before his account was suspended, reports The Daily Mail.

We will never know the extent of damage these social media influencers have caused, but we do know the unintelligent actions have no positive influence on the world.

It is always wise to wash produce before eating it, and especially during a pandemic like coronavirus.

Depending on the surface, coronavirus can last anywhere from a few hours to several days, according to the World Health Organization.

When shopping it may be wise to wear gloves that you dispose of after each use to not spread the virus to yourself and to your family.

Using a disinfectant wipe on surfaces you are unsure of can help kill the virus before it infects you.

Always avoid contact with your face while out of the home, as well as anyone who appears sick.

There is no sure-fire way to avoid contracting COVID-19, but hopefully the spread of social media influencers being vulnerable to the illness will deter viewers from perpetuating the insanity of purposefully spreading germs to others.
