A young man who licked a toilet for the coronavirus challenge, a dangerous social media stunt that has gone viral in recent days, has announced that he has been diagnosed with the disease.

This has gone viral among young people as they are quarantined in their homes to stop the spread of coronavirus.
The Miami Herald has traced the challenge back to model and social media influencer Ava Louise, who initially posted the video on her Instagram account:
Instagram model Ava Louise took some heat this week because of a stunt she pulled on a flight to Miami on Friday.
The Rutgers University student is the social media enemy du jour after posting a video of her licking a toilet seat, as part of a “coronavirus challenge.”
In the clip, the New Jersey native, wearing sunglasses on her head, leans down, licks the seat generously as it if were ice cream, then gives the peace sign.
The “Skinny Legend Anthem” singer first gained fame after appearing on “The Dr Phil Show” twice telling her “not to hot” tale about how she used to be overweight and bullied but is now a “magical creature.”
“Please [repost] this so people can know how to properly be sanitary on the airplane,” read Louise’s caption.
The backlash was almost immediate. Even “The View’s” Meghan McCain blasted Louise and Tweeted that she should be put in jail.
But the 21 year old is “unbothered” as she wrote on Insta. Louise told the Miami Herald that people are “bugging” and that she was at no risk of catching COVID-19.
“I trolled America,” she said. “Like, it was a clean toilet seat. On a sugar daddy’s plane.”
Louise, who is in Miami for an indefinite amount of time on vacation, says she is feeling perfectly healthy.
Medical professionals have urged young people not to participate in this fad.
“If these people (doing the challenge) are infected, they will leave virus on the surfaces they have licked, potentially infecting others. If the infected person subsequently dies, this means this bizarre behavior could result in death of an innocent person,” said Dr John Campbell, a former nurse.
“If they are not infected, the virus may be contracted from potentially contaminated surfaces. This means the individual can contract the disease themselves. In addition they could spread the disease they have contracted and infect other people, some of whom may go on to die,” he added.
“It is highly irresponsible for people to put their own health and the health of those around them on the line for no other reason than a pointless internet ‘challenge,'” said Nikki Kanani, who works as Medical Director of Primary Care in Britain.
This trend will hopefully fall by the wayside as the coronavirus pandemic continues to pick up throughout the world.
Virginia Set to Become First US State to REQUIRE Masks, Even Though Northam Has Refused to Wear One
Northam was caught maskless at a beach last week.
The commonwealth of Virginia is set to become the first U.S state to require that face masks be worn in public places to deter the spread of coronavirus.
Controversial governor Ralph Northam announced that he’s going to mandate the wearing of facemasks in all public places where people congregate during a Tuesday press conference. The Democrat is requiring their use in retail spaces, government facilities, and public transportation. They’re also required in restaurants, except for when people are eating.
The facemask requirement is apparently going to be enforced by Virginia’s Health Department as opposed to law enforcement. The governor’s chief of staff described what he feared would be “tremendous equity issues” if the rule was enforced by law.
Considering it’s doubtful Virginia’s Health Department has the resources or power to ensure that every citizen of the state wear a facemask in all public places, it looks likely that the rule is more of a broad suggestion than a serious public health requirement.
While Northam is requiring that everyday citizens of the state wear facemasks, he hasn’t been so cautious. The controversial governor was caught at the shorefront of Virginia Beach without a facemask, and in close proximity to other people in a fashion that violated social distancing guidelines. The governor later apologized and took responsibility for his refusal to abide by his own health rules.
