Not RC, but the book I consult regarding saints, "Saints Preserve Us!" (written by actual Catholics!) lists Godberta as the saint for plagues, droughts, and/or epidemics.  No one named "Corona" is even listed.

(Handy little book, written with some humor, by a couple New Yorkers, one of whom is a former National Lampoon writer/editor.  They also did "Who in Hell?" a sort of Who's Who of scoundrels, a summary of their misdeeds, and where they reckon they fit in the Inferno.)

St. Corona is the patron saint of treasure hunters, and St. Victor and Corona's feast day is celebrated on May 14.

from Catholic Online.

Farkticle is pretty muddled.  Sts V & C seem to be a kind of package deal.  That's how they get you.
