A Vietnamese chef is selling burgers shaped like coronavirus to boost the morale of people amid COVID-19 scare across the world. Chef Hoang Tung and his team are making coronavirus-themed burgers that have little “crown” made of dough so that the buns resemble the virus.
The team of chefs is moulding dozens of green-tea stained burger buns to help people overcome the anxiety caused by coronavirus pandemic.
“We have this joke that if you are scared of something, you should eat it,” Tung, who works at the Pizza Home takeaway shop in downtown Hanoi, told Reuters.
“That’s why the coronavirus isn’t scary anymore after you eat a burger in the shape of the virus itself. That way of thinking spreads joy to others during this pandemic,” Tung said.
Despite businesses being forced to close because of the novel coronavirus, the Pizza Home shop is selling around 50 burgers a day.
Dang Dinh Quy, 66, who took his grandson to grab a bite of the Coronaburger, viewed the luminous green burger as a morale-boosting treat.
“This coronavirus is very dangerous. But if we eat a burger in its shape, in our minds it’s like we are already victorious. If you want to beat it, you’ve got to eat it first,” Quy said. [ Timesnownews.com ]
