Coronaviral: the best memes, tweets and cartoons to get you through – open thread

Travel restrictions have neither stopped the spread of this novel coronavirus nor prevented it from becoming a pandemic. Check out the excellent Think Global Health site

House Party too stressful? St Petersburg firm creates the ‘Stay the Fuck Home Bar’ – online drinking company for self-isolating Russians (and anyone else who wants to join).

Not everyone is partying though. There’s been a fantastic mutual aid response in the UK (younger people checking in on their older neighbours and offering to do the shopping). Check out the mutual aid website for an uplifting example of citizenship and solidarity.

‘Sends shivers down my spine; body’s aching all the time’ Great riff on Bohemian Rhapsody, with lyrics wonderfully updated by Dana Jay Bein ht Michelle Mularkey

Stay safe everyone
