Right from toilet paper to hand sanitizer shortage memes, here are some people that are finding ways to make everyone smile through the COVID-19 crisis.
Every day, COVID-19 cases are rising worldwide. People are finding measures to slow its spread and are promoting social distancing. Currently, people are self-quarantining or self-isolating. This means that they are not going outside or playing sports and not socializing anymore.
While some communities are taking this isolation seriously and giving time to their hobbies, others are spending this quarantine period by creating memes and making people laugh. In this connected world, where socializing is avoided by people (especially teens) & they prefer using digital devices, this has become a vital solution to this coronavirus outbreak.
Unfortunately, this coronavirus outbreak has affected people's mental health, and they are scared. While some are searching for movies to watch in COVID-19 lockdown, others are finding ways to protect their mental health.
So, let us take a break from this critical situation and laugh a little. Look at a few memes that could distract your minds during COVID-19.
But COVID-19 doesn’t allow you to interact with anyone!

Have you ever wondered why everyone is talking about humor in this critical situation? In times of stress, humor helps us pull through. The British Australian Comedian and actor, Tim Minchin said,
“We don’t laugh at scary things because we don’t understand their seriousness. We laugh because they’re serious. Making jokes gives us a sense of power over the threat.”
The late Robert R. Provine, a professor at the University of Maryland who became the world’s expert on laughter after studying how and why people laugh, concluded that it is a way of bonding.
“Most people think of laughter as a simple response to comedy, or a cathartic mood-lifter. Instead … I concluded that laughter is primarily a social vocalization that binds people together. We laugh with others to give us the pleasure of acceptance.”
Matt Forde, the British Comedian, told that timing is important. He said,
“If you're joking about how boring self-isolation is when the death rate is relatively low, then that probably won't offend too many people.”
Psychologists and comedians around say that laughter is the best medicine as long as it has good taste. American actress and comedian Erica Rodes says quarantined people need humor as toilet paper and amusing memes are healing people in several ways.
Psychologist Sean Truman said that comedy is a safe passage through tragic times. He said,
“It’s a really powerful way to manage the unmanageable. Just to make fun of it and to gain control by laughing at it. That’s a really powerful psychological move we can make.”
COVID memes are encouraging people to stay inside at their homes. Several government agencies and police are using these COVID memes to create awareness among people. Hundreds of memes have been shared on social media and other platforms for those who are breaking the lockdown.
You might find reading these COVID memes awkward this time, but humor is helping people to cope with this fear. Also, families are spending their time discussing these memes - most of which spread awareness about coronavirus.
Do you know how this unprecedented coronavirus outbreak could be stopped? How can everyone cope with this isolating situation? How are you spending your time during the quarantine period? Have you ever come across these COVID memes before?
