While most people are doing their best to avoid the spread of the Covid-19 disease, some people are doing the exact opposite -- to live on in infmay.
Licked toilet seat twice
Larz, an influencer who is seen to be largely based in the U.S., went viral for licking a toilet seat twice, before saying "Coronavirus challenge".
HOLD THE BLEEP UP!!!!! Did he just walk in and lick this nasty AZZ toilet in a public bathroom and called it #CoronaVirusChallenge? 🤮🤮🤮🤮 pic.twitter.com/ljzZYpIxCs— Chef Kenneth J McDuffie (@Phillieschosen) March 21, 2020
Initially posted to his Twitter account, Larz would then later claim that he tested positive for Covid-19 in a video from a hospital bed.
There is no confirmation whether this is true, but his Twitter account has since been suspended.

This is not the first time Larz had gone viral online for such an act.
In 2019, he ate ice cream out of a tub in a supermarket before putting it back in the freezer.
The influencer was copying a similar viral stunt, that prompted supermarkets in the U.S. to increase security around their ice-cream sections for a while.
Separately, people are also doing their own "coronavirus challenge", where they lick surfaces such as toilet seats, poles and handles.

Not all of them are getting away with their actions.
Cody Pfister, was arrested and charged for making a terrorist threat after he filmed himself licking a row of deodorants at a Walmart in Missouri, U.S.
The video, according to The Daily Beast, was filmed on Mar. 11 at the Warrenton store of the supermarket chain.
In the video, Pfister said, “Who’s afraid of the coronavirus?”, before he proceeded to lick several items.
He was arrested on Mar. 23, and he has been charged with a terrorist threat in the second degree.
