Influencer reportedly hospitalized with coronavirus after licking toilet”

The craze - seen mainly on TikTok, a video-sharing platform - spurs users to post footage of themselves licking everything from toilets to grocery store produce.

A reckless influencer in California claims to have been hospitalized with coronavirus shortly after he posted a video of himself licking a toilet seat in a public washroom, as part of a particularly disgusting challenge on TikTok.

"I tested positive for coronavirus", the 21-year-old tweeted from an account that has since been suspended, the outlet reported.

His alleged hospitalization comes days after he posted a video of himself dragging his tongue along the seat of a toilet in a public washroom, as part of the "Coronavirus Challenge" on social media.

Larz, 21, who is based in California in the U.S. and posts under the handle GAYSHAWNMENDES has participated in previous challenges including licking tubs of ice cream in supermarkets.

The woman who commenced the "coronavirus challenge" on TikTok told news outlets: "I was exhausted of that b***h corona getting more publicity than ME".

He says he has since tested positive for coronavirus and is in hospital for treatment.

Larz was also one of the influencers who joined in the viral trend of licking tubs of ice cream in supermarkets and then putting them back in the freezer.

Larz previously appeared on Dr. Phil where he said: "I don't talk to my family".

In the brief but repulsive clip, the Missouri-based man continues to cover essential items with his saliva while staring directly at the camera.

The virus has also caused more than 800 deaths across the country.
