My cousin has a covid and licked everything, scaring the customers of the market man on the nets. The bass is waiting for him

A man was sentenced to 15 months in prison by a federal court in Texas, who spread false information about goods in a supermarket that was allegedly licked by a man with covid-19. Referring to the prosecutor’s office, The New York Times reported.

“My cousin has a covid-19 and has been licking everything for the last two days because we paid him.” Christopher Perez wrote last April on Facebook referring to a store in San Antonio. He also shared the misleading media report that a coronavirus infected person was working in another branch of the same supermarket chain.

The post about licked food was deleted after 16 minutes, but its screenshot was sent to the authorities by an anonymous notifier. Perez was arrested in April 2020, at the beginning of the covid epidemic in the United States, when there was little reliable information on the level of danger of coronavirus and people frantically bought food supplies and drugstore supplies.

Perez’s indictment blamed the conscious attempt to scare people with threats to spread dangerous diseases. In Wednesday’s judgment kthe favored this version and stated that Perez had broken the law with his two contributions, which prohibits the dissemination of misleading information in connection with biological weapons. According to the court’s interpretation, this law also includes coronavirus.

The lawyer said that Perez intended the post as a joke and also wanted to discourage people from going to public places to stop the virus from spreading.
