    New Delhi (Sputnik): The coronavirus pandemic has led to paranoia as some people have flooded social media with doomsday warnings while linking the virus to various prophecies and predictions. A bizarre report of a man biting a woman in southern India has further added fuel to the fire, with netizens calling it a “zombie apocalypse”.

    A man in his 30s, was under quarantine due to his travel history, but was reported to be “mentally disturbed” after he ran out of his house naked on Friday and killed a 90-year-old by biting her throat in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu.

    Immediately after the incident, the elderly woman was taken to a hospital to treat her neck injury but succumbed on Saturday as she didn’t respond to the treatment. The man was held by the police after locals raised the alarm.

    The bizarre incident amid the already critical situation in India has left social media users aghast. Several called it a "zombies apocalypse", while others feared that it is the end of the word.
