INSTAGRAM comedians sparked panic when they pretended to spill coronavirus on a New York subway train.
The jokers got on an L train in Brooklyn dressed in hazmat suits and carrying a plastic container filled with red liquid and covered in warning labels.
They then tipped the contents on the floor and told passengers it was coronavirus – which experts have warned could kill 45million people worldwide.
Some passengers screamed and jumped on seats as the liquid ran down the subway car.
One woman can be heard saying “Oh no!” in a video of the bad taste stunt posted on Instagram.
Another passenger says sternly: “That better be Kool-Aid.”
It was the work of Instagram jokers David Flores, 17, and Morris Cordewell, 19, both from Queens.
