No, the Coronavirus has No Correlation to the Corona Beer.


Is the beer bad?

Well, in terms of flavor, that's up for debate. But NO, the Coronavirus is not affiliated with the beer company “Corona'', they just have similar names. The coronavirus was named because the virus’s unique descriptions share similar to a king’s crown. The virus is considered an “outbreak” since the virus spreads similar to the flu/cold. The outbreak began in Wuhan, China in early January 2020 but was known prior to 2019. The virus was believed to be sourced from pangolins — long-snouted, ant-eating mammals often used in traditional Chinese medicine — which are the probable animal source of the coronavirus outbreak.” The Coronavirus can cause Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS).(SARS-CoV)


Is this the end?

The corona virus is spreading like the common cold and the flu but can be transported by raw meats. “From coughing and sneezing in the air, close personal contact, touching an object, surface, or raw meat infected with a virus”. You should follow the similar preconditions for the cold/flu season. First wash your hands after coming in contact with others and public objects, cover your face when you sneeze, and make sure to cook meat thoroughly. What about face masks? “While a surgical mask is a solid flu-fighting strategy in general, if you’re perfectly healthy and simply looking for (increasingly elusive) peace of mind, experts are not completely sold on the necessity of adding a mask to your flu-avoidance routine. Try to take proactive steps such as taking vitamin C and saponins.

Is there a cure for the coronavirus? 

No, there isn't a cure yet since the virus is still being studied before a possible creation of a vaccine. However, there have been recent studies about potential inhibitors to the virus. There is a study of drinking Black tea or Purer tea that can slow the virus because of Theaflavin-3,3-digallate (TF3.) The study shows “TF1, TF2 and TF3 were more potent 3CLPro inhibitors than catechins in green tea. During the fermentation step in the production of black tea, most of the catechins are oxidized and condensed into theaflavins through dimerization and into thearubigins through polymerization. Green tea contains 30% of catechins (dry mass base) while black tea contains 9% of catechins and 4% of theaflavins (19).”
