Default Cloudy Wort

I have just put down a corona style beer and the wort is very cloudy is there anything that I can do about this? or does anyone know what causes this?

What do you mean by 'put down', I hope you didn't shoot it . If it is in the primary it should clear up once you rack to the secondary and let sit for a while. If memory serves Corona is a lager, just give it some time and I'm sure it will clear up.

If the boil was nice and strong all the cloudy stuff should settle out, in the secondary fermentor of course

Dont worry about it too much, like everyone says, it will clear once it settles. I brewed a very light colored APA and it was murky to say the least when I sparged. I ran off a lot before sparging, but it was still cloudy. Long story short, I just transfered it to a keg from the secondary, and it flowed nice and clear.
