PARENTS BEWARE: This influencer licks plane toilet seat for ‘coronavirus challenge’

By JESSICA PAG-IWAYAN

In an attempt to go viral online, social media influencer Ava Louise filmed herself licking a toilet seat, uploaded it online, and tagged it as “coronavirus challenge.” 

On Twitter, the 21-year-old influencer also shared the video with the caption “Please RT this so people can know how to properly be sanitary on the airplane.” This video already garnered more than 400,000 views on Twitter alone. 

The 2019 novel coronavirus has been declared by the World Health Organization (WHO) as pandemic. It now infected more than 190,000 people across the globe and killed 7,987 individuals. In the Philippines alone, the Department of Health (DOH) recorded 187 cases and 12 deaths. 

Meanwhile, this social media influencer falsely believes that she wouldn’t catch the virus like “the gays” and the “rich” blondes. She also said that “coronavirus is for poor people and poor people only.” 

In this time of crisis where the whole island of Luzon is placed under community quarantine, children will go online to ease their boredom. Parents, make sure you’re well aware of what they watch and who they follow online for them to avoid imitating this kind of dangerous challenge. It is also best to explain to them what is COVID-19 and how they can protect themselves from it.
