The entire country of Italy is on lockdown due to the spread of coronavirus but Joe Giudice claims Viagra is more dangerous than COVID-19.

“More people die from Viagra (heart attacks and drug overdose) everyday than this Coronavirus 🦠,” the estranged husband of “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice began on Instagram.

“People here are frantic because government is ridiculous with 🔒down !!!! Sorry Lockdown not for me Never again !!!!!,” he said, referring to his 41-month prison stint.

He went on, “Stay safe 🌎 eat healthy, exercise, and no shaking and 🧼 👏! #coronavirus #staysafeoutthere #lockdownnotcool #awarenessiskey #washhands.”

In the accompanying video, the father of four turned the camera to his Italian neighbourhood, saying the streets currently resemble a “ghost town.”

“Literally nobody out because of this stupid coronavirus,” he said. “It’s, like, ridiculous. People are so scared, unbelievable. Grow a set of cojones. Jesus, this is ridiculous.”

While there isn’t much data on the current Viagra death toll, Psychology Today reports that in the decade between 1998 — the year Viagra was approved — and 2007, the erectile dysfunction medication killed 1,824 people, while the death rate for coronavirus has already surpassed 4,000 globally in a matter of months, according to CNN.

Giudice, 47, was sent back to his native Italy in October to await a final decision in his deportation case.
