When coronavirus turned into one of the greatest public health crises back in 2020, things like we knew them before changed beyond recognition. Not only did toilet paper become a hot commodity, but basically, a new kind of dictionary was born to reflect the current times. Hence, the term ‘covidiot’ emerged to refer to someone who, as Urban Dictionary puts it, “ignores the warnings regarding public health or safety. A person who hoards goods, denying them from their neighbors.”

The term has been in use a lot lately, and this is partly due to the fact that, no matter how much worse the pandemic may get, some members of society still act as if not a single thing has changed. The worst of it is that engaging in such behaviors like throwing decadent parties, refusing to wear face coverings, and calling Covid-19 a hoax not dissimilar to 5G puts everyone at risk.

So this time, we take a look at some of the most irresponsible Covid examples that should work as a handbook of what not to do during times of coronavirus crisis. After you're done, check out our previous post with more shameful Covid deniers who refuse to follow the rules and common sense.

To find out more about the surge in Covid denialism during the worldwide pandemic, Bored Panda reached out to Dibs Baer, a New York Times bestselling author of "Lady Tigers in the Concrete Jungle." Dibs said that the reason why there’s still so much Covid denialism has to do with “too many mixed messages in different parts of our country and the fact that “a lot of people don’t believe in basic facts or science.”

The LA-based celebrity journalist and book author thinks that people are in denial because they can’t deal with the loss that’s happening. “The number is so high it almost doesn’t seem real. Overall, it’s mind-boggling. I’ve had two friends lose their fathers recently to COVID. It’s real and it’s devastating.”

When it comes to responding to Covid deniers, Dibs believes that being armed with information is a good way to go. “Like, I live near LA, where someone dies every 8 minutes from COVID right now. I might say something like, 'Hey, did you know that 1 in 50 people have COVID in our neighborhood? I wonder if you’re that one person? Probably, since I’ve been around 50 people today and you’re the only one who didn’t have a mask on!'” He added that he enjoys being passive-aggressive, which is not exactly the same as plain old aggressive.

Dibs also believes in calling people out in a safe way, if possible.“I had to go to the doctor this morning and I couldn’t believe it, but there was a guy sitting in the waiting room without a mask! And the nurse asked him to put one on and he stomped his feet like a big baby. I was about to get up and go help her when he finally put one on reluctantly.” Dibs believes the guy thought it wasn’t manly to put it on.

When it comes to humiliating ‘Covidiots’ by calling them out, video taping can also work, according to Dibs, but it can turn scary if you pick the wrong person on the wrong day. “I find it easier to yell at strangers than neighbors and people I know.” Having said that, Dibs concluded that the best weapon against Covid deniers is information.

Gosh some Christians are really giving us a bad name for the rest, my family is connected with 3 lovely churches and they all require you to wear masks, social distance the seats, and offer ways for you to stream the church services from your home. Two even take everyones temperatures before you enter. Our family personally feels safest staying at home and so does at least half of each of the churches we actively are with. Not all of us are making idiotic decisions!
