King introduced Pennywise, an evil entity, in his 1986 novel IT and in the meme, one can see Pennywise with a caption saying, “I got hand sanitizer down here' instead of the original line 'We all float down here'. The post is in reference to the novel coronavirus outbreak which has now affected approximately 90 countries.
