As coronavirus continues to spread — and panic spreads even more — one dad wanted to take drastic measures to ensure his daughter washes her hands.

He orchestrated a fake doll death.

Yes, this dad told his five-year-old daughter that her doll had died of coronavirus in a bid to increase her hand-washing. Now his wife's mad at him, his daughter's possibly traumatized, and he's wondering if he went too far.

"[Am I the a-hole] for telling my daughter one of her dolls died in an effort to get her to wash her hands more often?" he wrote.

The dad is concerned because coronavirus cases are up in his area:

There's been a handful of COVID-19 cases in my area and there seems to be very little government effort to slow down the spread.

His five-year-old daughter can't seem to get the memo on hand-washing, so he threw the doll in the garbage:

I've been encouraging my kids to wash their hands frequently but my 5 y/o daughter isn't washing her hands enough. I came up with the idea to throw out one of her dolls and tell her it died of the coronavirus.
