The coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, has laid its hands on a co-founder of the Torus dapp, Zhen Yu Yong, after he attended an Ethereum Community Conference and the ETH London event.
Zhen Yu Yong has received a positive test for COVID-19. He has taken to Twitter to spread the news around the community and urge all those who attended the same events or even had close contact with him to take the necessary tests as soon as possible.
The U.Today team and the crypto community wish Zhen Yu Yong a fast recovery.
COVID-19 is believed to have played a major role in the current heavy decline of the stock market and the fall of the Bitcoin price when BTC slid below the $8,000 area.
However, some in the community believe that the virus has merely been used as a scapegoat for the financial crisis which has been approaching anyway.
