The coronavirus continues to spread across the world - and it has now taken root in the United States.

Doctors are now giving people advice on what activities to steer clear of, if you want to avoid infection.

And one activity that some doctors are warning about, may be difficult for some men - getting a lap dance.

According to some doctors, a lap dance - which involves close contact with a woman wearing very little clothes - could mean the coronavirus.

Dr Hamid Nasuana, a general practitioner from New York spoke with MTO News. The doctor explained, "Getting a lap dance involves [a customer] being close to the dancers face - which would be dangerous if she had the coronavirus."

The doctor continued, "Also, the dancer is going from person to person all night. If she dances with one person that's infected, she could possibly spread the infection to every man in the club."
