Top 10 Stupidest Things People are Doing Because of the Coronavirus

Me and my family went to the UK before Christmas time to see our relatives, the Coronavirus was new back then. Now we're stuck in the uk, and it's on lockdown. These are just some silly things people are doing because of the coronavirus. Remember to keep a clear head about this!

The Top Ten

1 Buying loads of toilet paper

This is the worst thing to do. Honestly, my family didn't buy a single roll (and we still have 2 cupboards full of the stuff- it was there when we moved in)

It doesn't really make much sense why would you buy it right now I mean it doesn't have anything to do with the coronavirus - Murphypaw

Toilet paper is a luxury not a necessity, this is why a lot of the World hates us our senseless wasting - germshep24

Don't know why hoarding on toilet paper, but come on people! Coronavirus doesn't give you diarrhea, it's a super flu. - TechnicallyIDoComics

2 Buying loads of disinfecting hand gel

Getting 30 bottles of hand sanitizer is NOT going to save you from Coronavirus. Just wash your hands daily, don’t spend the extra money


3 Buying unsubscribed medicine without a doctor's word

This is really dangerous never by a medication without a doctor express consent there is an important reason for that - germshep24

I got word people stockpiling drugs, in fear of catching the Corona virus.. - Murphypaw

4 Meeting up with others

It's called social distancing, people. Go home.

This is just DUMB


Don't people know what S-O-C-I-A-L D-I-S-T-A-N-C-I-N-G spells?

5 Suiting up

Use a mask if it's available, but don't buy to much. it's best for sick people! - Murphypaw

6 Going to the hospital after even a small cough or cold

The way this virus spread is directly depending to proximity to an infected person thus making case explode and with little hospital space doctors don't need to deal with your mild symptoms - germshep24

This is especially bad considering that the hospitals will be extra busy so you might be delaying someone who actually needs it from getting treatment. - Powell

my sister smashed her head and she looked like harry potter for half a week, but we still didn't take her to the hospital. Anyway, if u cough, it don't mean u have it. THE SYMPTOM LIST SAID CONTINUOUS COUGH. If u do have it anyway, follow government advice.


Just go to the general practitioner first. - Userguy44

7 Overreacting

I mean, I see why people are overacting but I don't think they should

Yeah too many people are overreacting, I bet the virus will end eventually, it probably not the end of the world

with people overreacting the virus will at least end faster unless your a religious fanatic and believe that this is punishment brought down by God to test your faith and thus don't social distance yourself because God will protect you if you believe hard enough then you contributing to the spread and adding to the death toll - germshep24

Yeah people don't need to overreact it not the end of the world, if you stay home you probably should be fine

The news about the virus make people overreacting even more.

8 Ignoring advice from others

Yes, these people are pretty annoying. Keep distance from other people and don’t panic and you will be fine. Also wash your hands. - Userguy44

9 Purposely coughing on people and claiming they have the coronavirus

I hate these people with a burning passion. They are nothing more than complete morons who have nothing to do with their lives. They have no respect for other people at all. - Userguy44

Stupid TikTok corona challenge. This is why I don't have this racist, stupid app even though I'm 15. I really do wish teens would stop pressuring me to download it. Is there anyone out there in my position?

Nobody likes being quarantine, but we do it to protect the human race, we don't need idiots making fun of a pandemic - germshep24

Unless there's a pedophile following you, don't ever do this to anyone. - AlphaQ

10 Being racist and assuming that all Asians have the disease

I mean, China did start the whole coronavirus thing...but it doesn't mean we should go and attack Asian people. You can't blame every Chinese person for this because they can't help it.

I am the only asion person in my grade and everyone makes fun of me and stuff it so unfair

Ughhhhhh this is the one thing that annoys me the most about this pandemic. This does not, and will not give us an excuse to be racist. I've seen too much racism at my school these past few months.

this is just really stupid,

I agree, especially since I live in china, yet it's like one of the safest countries from the virus. USA's worse, no offense.

The Contenders

11 Purposely licking products in the store and claiming they have coronavirus

People are doing this? What does this have to do with the coronavirus

If Someone Did This I Would Slap The Crap Out Of Them.

12 Self isolating even if they are highly unlikely to get it

No this is a very smart thing to do, no one is highly unlikely to get it and it is better to be safe than get and and show no symptoms and accidentally give it to someone that can't survive it - germshep24

I mean...we are supposed to be in lockdown...I personally think this is a smart move. - AlphaQ

13 Accusing pharmacists of hoarding medical supplies

I agree with Frostfeather. if anything, they're SUPPOSED to get as much medical supplies as they can!

They need the medical supplies guys! - FrostfeatherofSnowClan

14 Not following orders from authorities and governments

Yes I know it feels like the government is infringing on our rights and being what feels like Authoritarianism, but it is to protect our nation and ensure we get back to normal life again, every time you disobey you are extending the quarantine time and contributing to the fall of our economy while adding more pointless deaths - germshep24

They'll listen to the celebrities rather than the authorities and I find that disrespectful.

People just don’t care! - FrostfeatherofSnowClan

15 Copping an attitude

"Maaan I don't wanna do this"- LIVES ARE COUNTING ON THIS YOU BRAT!

16 Overstocking

By only what you need, and no that does not include enough hand sanitizer to last you 3 weeks - Murphypaw

Can't really over-buy if you have not seen a single package of TP or hand sanitizer in almost 2 months.

Like I said, calm tf down it's not the apocalypse. - AlphaQ

17 Going to parties

I heard that a group of police had to break up a party and arrest the majority of the partygoers, take it seriously people this is not a joke

Never go to a party because it will be crowded

18 Protesting quarantine

I hate this list

19 Gathering in crowds
