Man suffers horrors, people laugh, because of this corona link - bizarre! Forced to carry ID everywhere, turns viral joke

A man is in a bizarre situation. He is trending because of his name. What can be more unfortunate than having a name that reminds you of the biggest tragedy ever? For 38-year-old Jimmy Korona, his surname has become a constant source of irritation as people think that is some sort of a pandemic joke, and laugh at him. What is is worse, the news has become viral and he is the worse off for it as he faces daily horrors whenever his name comes up.
Jimmy Korona, who is from the United Kingdom, has to carry a proof of identification everywhere he goes, as people assume he’s pulling a prank when he tells them his name.
Recently, when he welcomed his son into the world, he was asked for an identification proof because doctors and medics couldn’t believe his name. He had to convince them that it was his real surname and not a prank. He has named his son Jimmy Joseph Korona.
Before the pandemic, Jimmy never had a problem with his surname, but since the outbreak of coronavirus, people refuse to take him seriously.
“Nobody can believe my name is Korona with the coronavirus pandemic about. People down the pub come up and say that they can’t believe my name is Korona. Nobody believes me apart from those that I've known for years,” he told The Mirror.
