93-year-old woman holding sign asking for more beer amid lockdown goes viral

A 93-year-old woman, who’s following social distancing protocol amid the coronavirus pandemic, has a clear message for the world: She needs more beer.

Olive Veronesi, who lives in Seminole, Pennsylvania, was photographed by a relative while holding a dry-erase board through her window that read: “I NEED MORE BEER!!”

In the photo, Veronesi is grinning while holding the dry-erase board and a can of Coors Light beer.




At 93, she’s in the age group which can experience more severe illness from the coronavirus, including pneumonia, or death, according to Associated Press. Those groups have been advised to take extra care as COVID-19 continues to spread.

While the message was meant for her daughter and neighbors, the photo went viral on social media.

“I have a beer every night,” she told KDKA-TV. “It’s something to [help] relax, you know?”



According to KDKA-TV, Veronesi’s sign had paid off, as several people around the world have offered to provide her with some beer.
