Coronavirus Appears On Tinder (As A ‘Profile’)

We are used to hearing news stories about coronavirus popping up in new places. The infectious disease that seems to have started in a live animal market in Wuhan, China, appears to show no signs of slowing down. 

Governments all around the world have put various measures into place to try and stop the virus, reaching more people. 

But one Tinder user decided to create a profile on the popular dating app as if they were the coronavirus itself. 

According to the ‘profile’, ‘Coronavirus’ is 18-years-old. 

It is ‘new in town’ and apparently is just ‘looking for fun’. The ‘profile’ goes on to say: 

‘Just got out of China, travelling the world (wonderlust lol)’. 

‘Love being outdoors, especially in crowded places.

‘Mask and goggles are a huge turn off. Swipe left if you are a doctor. 

‘Give me a chance. I’ll take your breath away and leave you in bed for days’.

‘Coronavirus’ appears to have set up a profile on Tinder

The identity of the real person behind the spoof profile remains a mystery, but you can bet that they are getting a lot of attention. Being married, I am not on Tinder so cannot check for myself.

And I doubt that the wife would believe me if I told her that I had to download Tinder and set up a profile ‘for work’.

We give them 10/10 in relation to their efforts to bring a bit of light ‘relief’ to what is a dire situation. But this is why we love social media, right? 

But what do you think? 

Is this ‘prank’ tasteless or should people see it for what it really is; just someone trying to ‘raise’ a few smiles? It is definitely the funniest thing that we have seen on social media so far today.
