(KGTV) - Has there been a spike in Google searches of people trying to figure out if coronavirus has a connection to Corona beer?

Yes.

Since January 18th, searches have skyrocketed for the terms "Beer Coronavirus," "Beer Virus," and "Corona Beer Virus."

So far, Corona beer's parent company has yet to comment.

According to the CDC, the coronavirus gets its name from the crown-like spikes it shows under a microscope. Corona is Latin for crown.
