An 18-year-old girl from Texas is expected to be charged with making a terroristic threat, where in a Snapchat video she was attempting to spread the coronavirus to others, MTO News has learned.
The girl, who police identified as Lorraine Maradiaga, faces a charge of making a terroristic threat. Lorraine claimed in a series of Snapchat videos that she suspected she had the coronavirus and wanted to "willfully spread" it to others.

Dallas police told the media yesterday that the teenager is currently wanted by the law.
In the above video, it shows Lorraine appearing to take a COVID-19 test at one of Texas' drive-thru testing sites. While there, a health care professional can be heard telling Lorraine that she needs to go home and wait for test results.
But in another video, Lorraine is clearly still out in public - at a Walmart.
"I'm here at Walmart about to infest every motherf------, because if I'm going down, all you motherf------ are going down," she can be heard saying.
It's not clear whether Lorraine was actually infected with the deadly virus, or she had the ability to transmit it virus to others but police are taking the matter seriously as there are currently 363,000 confirmed coronavirus cases in the US and at least 10,000 deaths from the virus, according to the New York Times database.
