From hilarious to ridiculous, here are the best Coronavirus memes to get you through your day. Plus, we share the funny and totally relatable ways people in quarantine are spending their time. I’m sorry, earth is closed today.
Coronavirus – yet another problem 2020 has thrown at us, the biggest one we’ve seen in decades. And while healthcare workers are working overtime, governments and workplaces have taken drastic steps to reduce the local transmission rates. A handful of countries have nation-wide lockdowns, while many have region-wide lockdowns. Countless workplaces around the globe have asked their employees to work from home, and many schools and universities have closed indefinitely.

Coronavirus Memes: Quarantine & Chill
And when people are at home – what do they do? Of course, the answer is always memes! On Twitter, we’re seeing all sorts of ways people are spending their time in self-isolation and quarantines.

Let’s take a look at our top favorite picks, which are guaranteed to make you laugh, cry, say awww (or in case of the last one, even feel disgusted!).
Note: Currently, we’re having some trouble playing the embedded Twitter video memes on desktop. They’re working perfectly fine if you visit this page on your mobile phones though.

His work-from-home days start today, and his wife has gone to live with her parents for a few days (with his kids). ShilpaAhuja.com reached out to him for an official statement. He neither confirmed nor denied when I sent him this gif, asking him if this is what he’s up to.

Time to Take Out Your Most Ridiculous Halloween Costume
Dinosaurs had to take out trash when an asteroid headed to the earth, and they take out trash when Coronavirus engulfs their planet. The T-Rexes are responsible citizens. Be like the T-Rexes

Some teenagers have recklessly created an unhygienic #CoronaVirusChallenge, which involves licking public toilet-seats in a really stupid effort to show they don’t care about their well-being. Here I am washing my hands incessantly and not even as much as going out, and here are some who think they’re invincible (I value my life, thank you).

Which are your personal fave Coronavirus memes? Share with us on Twitter @shilpa1huja and let us have a laugh too. We all need it at a time like this.
Shilpa Ahuja a designer and entrepreneur. She is the editor-in-chief of ShilpaAhuja.com, which she founded with the goal of inspiring confidence in the modern working woman through fashion.
Fashion has traditionally been for the rich, white, thin woman. That’s how it evolved over centuries and that’s how it’s been represented in fashion media. But Shilpa believes that with the changing role of women in the society, fashion has changed, too. She believes that fashion is for everyone, regardless of their age, gender, color, body type and background. So she translates runway fashion into easy style advice that one can incorporate into their daily lives.
Shilpa’s work has been published in the University of Fashion blog and Jet Airways magazine. She is also an artist, illustrator and cartoonist. She is also the creator of Audrey O., a comic series that represents the lifestyle of millennial women. She enjoys creative writing and world travel. Her art has been exhibited at Harvard Graduate School of Design and the Aroma Hotel, Chandigarh and been published in Chandigarh Times.
Originally from Chandigarh, Shilpa also has a professional degree in architecture and has worked in interior project management. She is also the author of the book “Designing a Chinese Cultural Center in India”. Shilpa has a Masters in Design Studies degree from Harvard University.
