Twitch streamer ‘Married2Gamin’ was bewildered to find a viral TikTok of Ava Louise showing the social media starlet performing the “Coronavirus Challenge.”
Amid a worldwide pandemic, world leaders are advising people to keep safe distances from one another in public and being actively conscious about how they conduct their lives with respect to curbing the contagion’s spread.
In a questionable social media trend, the TikTok user was seen doing the Coronavirus Challenge which saw Louise licking the seat of a toilet.
Married2Gamin, more widely known for the YouTube reaction channel ‘Married2TheReal,’ was dreading hitting play on the since-deleted TikTok showing a thumbnail of Louise’s head almost level with an airplane bathroom toilet seat.
“I am trying right now before I click this video to have faith in humanity,” Married2Gamin said. “But if f***in [Louise] licked this f***ing… Oh Lord, Jesus.”
Trying his best to stay composed, the streamer reluctantly pushed play on the clip which immediately showed Louise skimming the surface of the seat with her tongue.
Not being able to immediately see the remainder of the six-second video, Married2Gamin had to take a step back from what he just saw.
But when the streamer came back, he was convinced “there was no more humanity” in the world, in part due to the bizarre trend making its way around the internet.
“God, just f***ing wipe us off the face of the Earth,” he said, still seemingly in disbelief at what he’d just witnessed. “[Louise] just licked the f***ing toilet seat, and you’re all sitting here wondering why you got the f***ing coronavirus.”
The coronavirus, which causes COVID-19, is creating a respiratory illness among infected. It can travel via droplets when a victim sneezes, coughs, or talks.
Droplets can keep the virus “viable” depending on the surface for one to three days, according to a study to be published by Dr. James Lloyd-Smith, an assistant professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of California.
It’s because of the nature of transmission and its ability to infect someone without immediately showing symptoms that are causing great concern among the world’s healthcare leaders.
This could be why Married2Gamin was so rattled at the TikTok influencer brazenly exposing herself to germs in a time where COVID-19 has spread to 162 countries, infected over 180k, and has killed more than seven thousand people so far.
