Corona Offer $15 Million To Help Change Coronavirus Name To BudLightvirus

CDC is responding to an outbreak of respiratory disease caused by a novel (new) coronavirus that was first identified in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China and which has now been detected in almost 70 locations internationally, including in the United States. The virus has been named “SARS-CoV-2” and the disease it causes has been named “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”).

When you have a business and it's the same name with the so-called virus that been spread all over the world it can really affect your business. This kind of situation happens to the company Constellation Brands.

Constellation Brands, the company behind Corona beer, have been offered up to $15 million to help change the Coronavirus' name to the BudLightvirus. The Corona brand is one of the top-selling beers worldwide.

So why the new name change?

“Well for one BudLightvirus really rolls off the tongue doesn’t it?” Constellation CEO Bill Newlands told CNN. “And when you think of a disgusting virus that forces you to cover your nose or mouth if you come into contact with it, you think of Bud Lite so we feel the new name is apter.”
