As the world is grappling with coronavirus outbreak and governments around the world ordered lockdown, internet users have found a way to deal with the anxiety and boredom. Amid the crisis, several Twitter users have been sharing inspirational quotes, while some even mocked their own failures to live up to their lofty plans. May tweeple even shared jokes focused on ‘panic-buying’, that has seen supermarkets stripped of long-life goods and cleaning products.
The deadly virus has put a stop on movement around the world. Currently, there are more than 246,000 confirmed coronavirus cases globally and the virus has also claimed more than 10,000 lives. However, Twitter users have found a way to deal with the lockdown period.
From predictions to hilarious ‘stay at home challenge’, Twitter users have posted how they are dealing with the crisis. While predicting the future, one user wrote, “There will be a minor baby boom in 9 months .... and then one day in 2033 we will witness the rise of the QUAREN-TEENS”. Another said, “URGENT! A man with a supply of buckwheat groats and pasta seeks a woman with a supply of sugar and toilet paper”.

Day 1: I have stocked up on enough non-perishable food and supplies to last me for months, maybe years, so that I can remain in isolation for as long as it takes to see out this pandemic
Day 1 + 45 minutes: I am in the supermarket because I wanted a Twix
I know this time of self isolation is hard and scary for people but however bad you are feeling- please, please don’t consider starting your own podcast— Nicola Coughlan (@nicolacoughlan) March 16, 2020
Straight men under the age of 35 are particularly vulnerable to this and we all need to be vigilant of the dangers x
