Snoop Dogg sparks hysteria amongst his fans after he shared a video of himself doing the ten-second breath test to check if he had been infected by the coronavirus.


Amid global coronavirus lockdown, Snoop Dogg took the time on Monday to check in on his fans. In a video that was captioned "P.S.A," rapper kept his introduction short as he said:

"Stay close to your loved ones. Stay hydrated. I'll be checking in making sure you good. You straight? You good? I'm good."


In an attempt to prove to his fans just how good he was doing, Snoop Dogg proceeded to hold his breath for a few seconds before taking a deep breath out and saying, "no coughing."

The rapper was reportedly trying out the speculated coronavirus test, which suggests that if a person can hold their breath for ten-seconds without coughing, it means they do not have the virus. Pointing out a flaw in his attempt, a fan suggested proper testing measures.


It is reported there has been false information spreading that people can check if they have been infected with the coronavirus by holding their breath for ten seconds every morning.

It was speculated that if a person can hold their breath without any discomfort or coughing, it means they have no fibrosis in their lungs, and they are healthy. Realizing the misinformation in Snoop Dogg's P.S.A, one of his fans admitted to trying the technique.


According to Fox News, Stanford University has since spoken out against rumors that the breath test was started with a study at their research facilities.

With the information about the self-tests completely debunked, fans are still having a field day with Snoop Dogg's misguided P.S.A. Another fan joked whether the theory mentioned anything about sneezing.


CNN reports, upon the advice of the World Health Organization many countries have been encouraged ramps up their testing to control the pandemic. An epidemiologist Eric Feigl-Ding explained:

"[America is] playing catch up and testing people who are very sick to make testing available so that we get to the frontier of the cases."
