A young man who licked a toilet for the coronavirus challenge, a dangerous social media stunt that has gone viral in recent days, has announced that he has been diagnosed with the disease.
“If these people (doing the challenge) are infected, they will leave virus on the surfaces they have licked, potentially infecting others. If the infected person subsequently dies, this means this bizarre behavior could result in death of an innocent person,” said Dr John Campbell, a former nurse.
“If they are not infected, the virus may be contracted from potentially contaminated surfaces. This means the individual can contract the disease themselves. In addition they could spread the disease they have contracted and infect other people, some of whom may go on to die,” he added.
