Doja Cat says she "don’t give a fuck" about coronavirus.

The world may be terrified of the global coronavirus pandemic, but not Doja Cat. In fact, she's advising us all to stop being "pussies" about the whole thing.

At present, the virus has killed over 4,000 out of almost 116,500 cases. It has led to the cancelation of tours, concerts and music festivals, and consumers are frantically stocking up on hand sanitiser and toilet roll.

Although we've been advised to keep calm and self-isolate if need be, Dr. Doja (real name Amalaratna "Amala" Zandile Dlamini) has another remedy. The 'Say So' rapper hopped on Instagram Live to give her followers her hot take. "Bitch, I’m not scared of a coronavirus or the motherfucking beer version of that shit," she said.

"I’m gonna get corona and then I’m gonna get a Corona, 'cause I don’t give a fuck about corona, bitch. It’s a flu! I would literally… I’m not scared. Y’all are pussy, period. You just take some Mucinex [cold and flu medication] and drink water and tea and sleep – that’s all you gotta do. Y’all are so scared of some damn corona. Y’all are so scared of corona that I need a Corona." Er…


While Doja's advice isn't exactly medically proven there are ways to help stop the spread of virus. The World Health Organisation advises frequently cleaning your hands with soap and water, or an alcohol-based hand rub.
