The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has been devastating, globally. Of that, we can all agree. With the casualties rising, worrying press conferences, small businesses shuttering for the foreseeable and an over-extended health service, there’s not been a lot of positive news to come out of the health crisis, naturally.

Some have used their time to try and write pithy, impactful statements, to offer some words of encouragement, while others are just here for the LOLs, with Coronavirus memes or parodies.
