In case you’ve been blissfully unaware of the current SKY IS FALLING state of affairs in the world, there is a new viral outbreak that is causing widespread media panic.
The Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, was first discovered in Wuhan, China at the end of December 2019. It has now spread to other parts of the world and has been clogging up our newsfeeds as posts of 2 varieties make the rounds.
There’s the OMG THIS IS AN EMRGENCY posts and the IT’S FINE IT’S JUST MEDIA PANIC posts. Either way, we have been reminded of the importance of handwashing (come on, people) and for some reason, folks are flocking to the store to hoard toilet paper of all things (weird flex, but ok).
Luckily there are a whole slew of memes to make us giggle as we all get driven to that special place in hell we were promised (we laugh so we won’t cry, ok?).
