Can you catch the coronavirus from drinking Corona beer? No, of course not.
But that hasn't stopped people from reconsidering purchasing of bottles of Corona.
5W Public Relations polled American beer drinkers and found that 38 percent would no longer buy the brew under any circumstances, while another 14 percent said no to ordering one in a public venue.
“Could one imagine walking into a bar and saying, ‘Hey, can I have a Corona?’ or ‘Pass me a Corona?’” Ronn Torossian, founder of 5WPR, said in a statement.
A full 16 percent told the phone surveyors that they weren't sure whether the two were related... Think about that one for a minute.
Thanks to the confusion, intentions to buy the brand has dropped to the lowest point in two years, according to data from YouGov. Check out more details on the New York Post.
