“The coronavirus won’t last long because it was made in China”

China has a reputation for making a lot of cheaply made products. A joke about the 2019–20 Wuhan coronavirus outbreak has been printed on many images:

“The coronavirus won’t last long because it was made in China.”

The politically incorrect joke went viral in late January 2020. “Don’t worry guys. The WuHan virus won’t last long. It’s made in China” was posted on Twitter by Chris MJ on January 21, 2020. “Corona virus wont last long, it’s made in China” was posted on Twitter by patrickfronda on January 24, 2020. “#coronarovirus won’t last long, because it’s made in China” was posted on Twitter by RanuKumbolo on January 25, 2020.


Wikipedia: Coronavirus
Coronaviruses are a group of viruses that cause diseases in mammals and birds. In humans, the viruses cause respiratory infections – including the common cold – which are typically mild. Rarer forms such as SARS, MERS and the novel coronavirus causing the 2019–20 Wuhan coronavirus outbreak can be lethal. In cows and pigs coronaviruses cause diarrhea. In chickens they cause an upper respiratory disease. There are no vaccines or antiviral drugs that are approved for prevention or treatment.

I don’t worry about corona virus and I agree that it doesn’t last long because the virus is made in China. I would be more worried if it was made in Japan! 😂🤣

One meme said there was no need to worry – the virus would not last long because it was “made in China”.
