People continue panicking over the seemingly dangerous Chinese Wuhan coronavirus. Science searches for a remedy. But the internet asks the tough questions. Do we keep calling it coronavirus? Or is it time to call this thing Kung Flu?
Coronavirus (or Kung Flu) reached pandemic stage this week. Quarantines issued across China. Next, the World Health Organization and US government declare public health emergencies.
And the internet starts a meme battle – should we call this coronavirus? Or is it time to switch to Kung Flu?
Coronavirus vs Kung Flu – Meme Deathmatch
Let’s be honest. At least we’re done with war memes.
These are unusual times. We need to come together.
But let’s not freak out here, OK?
We’re in this fight together.
Coronavirus, itself, confirmed as much on Twitter.
So, at least the kids are safe.
Let’s take care of the neighbors.
Watch out for the signs.
Don’t forget to let the news keep you informed.
And, of course, make memes.
And if that’s not enough, make more. In fact, this is so big, coronavirus needed a second name.
The internet ran out of memes. Enter the Kung Flu.
Kung Flu Memes
Hear the rally cry.
Get yourself checked.
Join the fight.
We can’t let Kung Flu win, despite it being a clearly better name than coronavirus. We need everyone.
To win, we’re going to have to make sacrifices. Even if it comes at the expense of our social lives.
Remember, these are unusual times. Be wary of disinformation.
Especially from this guy …
… the one they call Winnie the Flu.
