“We believe, by and large, that consumers understand there’s no linkage between the virus and our business,” Maggie Bowman, the senior communications director at Constellation Brands, Corona’s producer, told Business Insider on Wednesday.
“Corona” in Latin means crown, and the word is the same in Spanish. Corona beer originated in Mexico.
In English, the anatomical term “corona” is used for body parts resembling a crown. Hence, the name “coronavirus” comes from the fact that under a microscope the virus has crown-like spikes protruding from it, as previously reported by Business Insider’s Holly Secon.
