Corona Memes That'll Make You Smile

Sometimes you just have to laugh so you don't cry. And in this time of constant coronavirus worry and fear, we're totally there.

by Eddie McNamara Health Writer

Look, we know that COVID-19 is serious and lives are at risk, but the scariest times sometimes spur the most creative waves of comedy. In these frightening days, meme makers have taken to the internet with a gusto the likes of which we have never seen before. They’ve managed to provide us a brief respite from the never-ending bad news cycle. And those breaks, no matter how small they may be, are important and necessary. They relieve stress. They help us connect and feel less alone. And they help us get through another day inside the same four walls. So for all those reasons, we thought we’d share some of our favorites. Got some that we missed? Tag us on Facebook ( or Instagram (@healthcentraldotcom), and we’ll keep adding to the list.
