TAMPA, Florida (The Adobo Chornicles, Tampa Bureau) – A new study found people may be skeptical of Corona beer because it shares part of its name with the virus making people ill across the world.
5W Public Relations, an independently-owned PR agency, conducted a phone survey of 737 U.S. residents who considered themselves beer drinkers this week.
The survey revealed 38 percent of beer-drinking Americans would not buy Corona under any circumstances now. Among those who said they usually drink Corona, only 4 percent said they would stop drinking Corona. Fourteen percent said they wouldn’t order Corona in a public venue.
Meanwhle, a separate survey conducted by The Adobo Chronicles (AC) showed that sales of Budweiser and Budlight in the United States more than doubled in the weeks after the first case of coronavirus was reported in the country.
”It’s better to be safe than sorry,” a bar customer at a local Tampa bar told AC.
AC is currently investigating whether sales of the Toyota Corona have also declined. Stay tuned!
