Following the outbreak of the Coronavirus, the Constellation Corona company, which are most popularly known for the Corona beer, have suffered a dent in their public image.
This is soon after rumors of the Corona beer being a cause of the disease surfaced on the internet. Unfortunately, this coincided with the time that the company kickstarted publicity for their new Corona hard seltzer.
The company reportedly budgeted $40 million to market this product, making it one nearly unavoidable. This, however, put their most popular product, the beers, at the fore and promoted the rumors.
The company quickly released a statement to dispel the rumors by sharing that they will continue with the marketing campaign as they have done for the past three decades.
"While we empathize with those who have been impacted by this virus and continue to monitor the situation, our consumers, by and large, understand there's no linkage between the virus and our business."
Now, it is utterly vital to draw the attention of the public that information that the virus can infect them through Corona Beer is FAKE.
The virus is confirmed to be spread through air with the only thing it has in common with the beer being the word "Corona." You can only contract the COVID-19 through contact with infected persons!
It is also just as crucial for you to know that hygienic practices like washing your hands frequently, maintaining social distancing, and many more others can help protect you against the disease.
