Coronavirus has everyone, across the globe, in a state of complete unrest!  Just within a few months, since the deadly virus spread worldwide, there have been more than 3000 reported deaths and thousands of confirmed cases, which includes a few in India as well. In the UK, Prince George and Princess Charlotte's school Thomas's Battersea revealed that a few of their students were tested for Coronavirus and were awaiting results. Prince William and Kate Middleton were informed alongside other parents regarding the predicament.

However, during the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's three-day tour of Ireland, William joked with a National Ambulance Service paramedic at the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin about how he feels that the media are being overdramatic when it comes to the brevity of Coronavirus. According to Time, William was heard saying, "I bet everyone's like, 'I've got coronavirus, I'm dying,' and you're like, 'No, you've just got a cough.' It does seem quite dramatic about coronavirus at the moment. Is it being a little bit hyped up, do you think, in the media?"

Taking it a step further, William joked, "By the way, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are spreading coronavirus. Sorry. So we're keeping an eye on that, so do tell us if we need to stop."

Unsurprisingly, William's insensitive comment did not go down too well with Twitterati. Check out their reactions below:
