THIS elderly couple have said they are too terrified to go to daily Mass after a stranger deliberately coughed into their masked faces as part of a sick new craze called the ‘Corona Challenge’.

The Co Kildare couple believe they are victims of a prank which has spread rapidly across the globe on the social media site, TikTok.

The so-called ‘Corona Challenge’ involves preying on vulnerable people by trying to frighten them about catching the deadly virus.
