The coronavirus outbreak has claimed thousands of lives around the world and lakhs of them have been infected with the novel virus. It has brought almost the entire world in terms of health, entertainment, production or economy to a halt.
Moreover, it’s consequences are so dire that we only hear, watch and read about the coronavirus outbreak all day long. It is indeed getting on our nerves!
Amid such a health crisis, instances of parents naming their kids with names inspired by the viral outbreak have come to light. Recently, a couple named their twin babies Covid and Corona in Raipur.
Following their footsteps, another couple from Saharanpur, Uttar Pradesh have named their newborn baby boy, Sanitiser. Talking about the inspiration behind their unique choice of name, the father of the baby told India Today, “Using hand sanitiser is very important to keep ourselves safe from the COVID-19 pandemic. The government in this time of crisis is ensuring an adequate supply of sanitisers, so that people can use them to remain safe. Free sanitisers are also being distributed to the needy across the nation.”

“My wife and I are highly impressed by the effective measures taken by both Prime Minister Narendra Modi and UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to battle the novel coronavirus. We have named our baby Sanitiser because it is being used by everyone at present to deter the spread of germs on our hands,” he added reports, Deccan Herald.
In another such instance, a newborn was named ‘Lockdown’ by his parents in Deoria district of Uttar Pradesh, following the nationwide lockdown during the pandemic.
We can’t really imagine how these kids are going to react once they grow up. Imagine the teacher taking attendance in school and calling out their names ‘Corona’, ‘Lockdown’, ‘Sanitiser’, it’s scary bruh!
