“Paranoia has reached absurd stages. I sneezed on my laptop and the anti-virus started a scan”

The 2019–20 coronavirus outbreak created much fear—and a few jokes.

“Purée la paranoïa du coronavirus s’étend je vient de toussé devant mon pc il a lancé un scan antivirus…” ("Mash the paranoia of the coronavirus is spreading I just coughed in front of my pc he launched an antivirus scan ...") was posted on Twitter by Orbillot on March 12, 2020. “La paranoïa face au #Coronavirus gagne du terrain! Je viens de tousser devant mon ordinateur et l’antivirus a fait un scan! #Covid_19” ("Paranoia facing #Coronavirus gain territory! I just coughed in front of my computer and the antivirus did a scan! #Covid_19") was posted on Twitter by Christian Bergeron on March 12, 2020.

“Paranoia has reached absurd stages...I sneezed in front of my laptop and the anti-virus started a scan on its own #COVID2019” was posted on Twitter by Mandeep Singh on March 14, 2020. “Paranoia reaching absurd levels, just sneezed in front of my laptop & it triggered an antivirus scan!” was posted on Twitter by Dr. Sanjay Arora PhD a few minutes later on March 14, 2020. The joke soon went viral.


Wikipedia: 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak
