Covidiot (COVID-19 + idiot)

"Covidiot” (COVID-19 + idiot) became a popular portmanteau word during the 2019-20 coronavirus pandemic. The word describes someone who doesn’t prepare (such as by not buying extra toilet paper), or someone who over-prepares (such as by hoarding too much toilet paper), or someone who doesn’t social distance, etc. “Covidiot-45” describes the 45th U.S. president, Donald Trump. “Covidiot” was first entered in the Urban Dictionary on March 14, 2020.

“COVIDIOT-45” was posted on Twitter by Redhead is a Bluehead on February 26, 2020. “Neologism: covidiots (ppl who deny covid-19 is real or that it was created by some left wing conspiracy)” was posted on Twitter by bob.wheeler.1985 on February 27, 2020.


Wikipedia: Coronavirus disease 2019
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The disease was first identified in 2019 in Wuhan, Central China, and has since spread globally, resulting in the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic. Common symptoms include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Muscle pain, sputum production and sore throat are less common. While the majority of cases result in mild symptoms, some progress to severe pneumonia and multi-organ failure.

/kəʊvɪdɪət/

Urban Dictionary
covidiot
Person who, in times of pandemic crises, unnecessarily hoards toilet paper and more food than a family of eight could possibly eat in a year, has no regard for the welfare of others by buying up absolutely everything, is a self serving nitwit, and likely hasn’t clue one about the actual disease. These people will, by and large, possess a herd mentality and inadvertently put the general population at risk by perpetuating mistruths, rumours, and conjecture. They will have likely voted for Trump at one time or another.
