Names can be complicated. Even when it's in your mother tongue, sometimes names are just complicated to pronounce. But nothing beats having a name that rhymes with Covid.
Technically, this dude's name is Kovid, which to us, doesn't rhyme with Covid. द and ड, of course! But for people outside India, the distinction is irrelevant.

Future foreign trips are going to be fun!
This tweet has now gone viral. Kovid has also shared quite a few incidents where his name was 'confused' with the plague.
