Coronavirus Snapchat

I have family in Hong Kong. The coronavirus has affected my family and frankly, scared a lot of people who have family in China. I’ve been asked by my parents to search for masks so we could send them to Hong Kong, due to the extreme shortages there. I received a Snapchat from a student that stated “I’m finna get coronavirus from my AliExpress packet.” I was confused why I got this Snapchat and more so furious that this student made a joke about the situation. This virus is not funny and for people to lightheartedly joke about this virus hurt me.
