“Can we uninstall 2020 and install it again? This version has a virus”

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic had many people wanting to “uninstall” 2020.

“Can we uninstall 2020 and reinstall it? I believe it has a virus” was posted on Facebook by Anson Sound-of Fujun on March 14, 2020. “Can we uninstall 2020 and install it again? This version has a virus” was posted on Twitter by Varun Deva on March 24, 2020, and Twitter by Derik Fein on March 29, 2020.

The joke has been printed on many images.

“Can we try turning the country off and on again?” is a related joke.

Maybe we could uninstall 2020 and run with 2019 for a bit, then reinstall.
